2016 Symposium- September 28th & 29th

September 28 at 7:30 PM - September 29, 2016 at 5:00 PM

Polarization: A forum on extreme thought in our environment, society, and technology.

We live in an era in which ideologies often seem diametrically opposed and common ground is frequently elusive. Whether such apparent polarization is real or imagined is certainly open to debate, but our impression of polarization undoubtedly influences our mindsets and social discourse on scales ranging from the individual to the global. Environmental, social, and technological problems are especially liable to be viewed through a black-and-white lens, and the American political scene and social media are just two potential facilitators of such perspectives.

We have identified four subthemes as core focal areas:

  1. The Positives and Negatives of Polarization
  2. The Emergence and Dissolution of Radical Movements
  3. Polarization within Academia
  4. An Open Showcase for Extreme and/or Radical Ideas

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public thanks to our sponsors. This event is September 28th - 29th and organized by Purdue University’s Ecological Sciences and Engineering Interdisciplinary Graduate Program. To get involved, please contact ese@purdue.edu. We look forward to seeing you there!

Religious Studies & Arabic Program's Islamic Studies Lecture

September 29, 2016 | 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Loren D. Lybarger, Ohio University

“Secularism and the Religious Return Among Palestinians in Chicago: An Ethnographic Reflection on the Politics of ‘Islam’ in the Current Moment”

Thursday, September 29, Anniversary Drawing Room, PMU, 4:00 p.m.
Reception to follow

Sponsored by the Religious Studies Program, the Arabic Program in the School of Languages and Cultures, and made possible by the INNOVATE 2.0 Arabic Speakers Grant?

Abstract: Anti-Muslim racism has spiked during the current presidential campaign in the United States. Calls to ban Muslim immigrants have paralleled an increase in violent incidents directed at Muslims across the country. Teaching about Islam and Muslims in this political moment is, therefore, particularly urgent. In this lecture, Loren D. Lybarger, Associate Professor of Classics and World Religions at Ohio University (Athens), will discuss the need to complicate the prevailing public discourse about “Islam” by emphasizing the historical contingency and socio-cultural diversity of Muslim societies. Lybarger focuses specifically on secular-religious interactions in the Palestinian immigrant community in Chicago. Drawing on extensive ethnographic research, he shows how this interaction, which intersects as well with gender, class, and generation, generates diverging and unexpected understandings of Islam and national identity. This divergence raises fundamental questions about what “Islam” is and means in the context of one particular group’s historical experience. It is by raising such questions, Lybarger concludes, that scholars in Islamic Studies and its related areas of study can most effectively challenge the caricaturing of Muslims in public discourse.
