UofL conference to examine discrimination against Muslims

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The University of Louisville says a symposium on campus will look at discrimination against Muslims in the United States.

The free, public event is set for March 27 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EDT in Ekstrom Library’s Chao Auditorium.

UofL says scholars with expertise in law, sociology, anthropology and cultural studies will share their views on topics ranging from the increase in anti-Muslim fringe groups to the racialization of religion since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The university’s Middle East and Islamic Studies program organized the event.
