The French Burkini Ban: Secularism, Security and Politics of Gender
5:00 - 6:30 PM Tuesday September 27th, 2016
G-76 Lewis Auditorium Goldwin Smith Hall
This summer, about 30 French towns passed laws banning the 'burkini' – full-body swimwear typically worn by Muslim women – from public beaches. The rationale behind these laws ranges from upholding French laïcité to seeing burkini as symbolic of enslavement of Muslim women to concerns over national security and public order especially in the wake of recent terror attacks in France. Critics of the ban, however, have called the laws Islamophobic and misogynist, seeing it as a continuation of the French colonial ‘civilizing mission’ and highlighting the marginalization of the Muslim minority in France.
Join us to engage in an important conversation moderated by Prof. Satya Mohanty on security, gender and racism in the context of French secularism with three distinguished Cornell professors: Prof. Camille Robcis, Prof, Durba Ghosh, Prof. Richard Miller. Find more details on the Facebook event page here.
Organized by the Islamic Alliance for Justice.
