Interrogating the Christchurch Shooting: How Global Racism, Islamophobia, and White Supremacy Manifested in New Zealand
A panel of experts will examine the root causes of the March 15 shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, that killed 50 people and injured 50 more. Panelists will illuminate the connections between anti-black racism, anti-Muslim hostilities, and antisemitism and elaborate on their rhetorical consolidation in diverse countries, their cross-fertilization, and their political and economic foundations. The panel also will offer strategies for navigating these root causes with intersectional and interfaith solidarity.
