The US Anti-Sharia Movement and the legalized othering of Muslima in the United States: Within the broader context of rising Islamophobia, this presentation sheds light on the legalized othering of Muslim communities across the United States via anti- Muslim legislation and bills spanning the years 2000-2016. On behalf of the Haas Institute, Rhonda Itaoui will present key report findings on the themes, patterns and trends of these anti-Sharia bills, while exploring the discriminatory impacts of anti-Sharia legislation on the citizenship and belonging of Muslim Americans, and American society at large. The session will also feature a Q&A segment with lead investigators and co-authors of the recent report 'Legalizing Othering: The United States of Islamophobia, Elsadig Elsheikh and Basima Sisemore' from the Haas Institute.
