Event description

Description

The Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago invites local educators to a special professional development workshop that will address anti-Islamic sentiment in our current social and political climate. This workshop’s featured speaker is Nour Kteily, Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. His research uses the tools of social psychology to investigate how and why social hierarchy and power disparities between groups emerge, and how this influences intergroup relations and prospects for conflict resolution. In our workshop, Professor Kteily will discuss a quantitative approach to identifying the nature and scope of the problem of Islamophobia. Together, we will examine Islamophobia’s global ramifications and explore novel solutions that can be taught in the classroom.
