Challenging Islamophobia through Applied Research, Civic Engagement, Education, and Global Classrooms to impact policy.
ISC comprises research groups, an academic video series, interdisciplinary & diaspora studies on college campuses, & the development of The International Consortium for Islamophobia Studies. The ISC is currently developing a series of WebDocumentaries. One is an academic islamophobia video series to be used by teachers in classrooms and the is featuring sensationalist personal pieces. ISC also puts together teams to develop syllabi for courses on islamophobia for several college campuses worldwide. We are also helping in the promotion of a documentary on the situation in Palestine, which will be produced by CNN.
