Banning Muslim Travel: Why It Matters

Monday April 24, 2017 @4:00 PM

Hale Sciences 270

The 2017 executive order limiting travel to the United States from six majority-Muslim countries will be discussed by a panel of experts from the University of Colorado Boulder this month.

The event, titled “Banning Muslim Travel: Why It Matters,” is scheduled for Monday, April 24, at 4 p.m. in Hale 270 on the CU Boulder campus.

Faculty from four departments will analyze recent events in a historical, political and regional context, considering questions such as the following:

What historical precedents have allowed this order to be promoted as beneficial to U.S. citizens? What conceptions of citizenship, borders and religion facilitate the naturalizations of threat that undergird the executive order? What regional relationships are occluded or concentrated by conceiving of threats in this way?

The panel will include presentations and discussions by these faculty experts:

  • Aun Ali, Department of Religious Studies
  • Nabil Echchaibi, College of Media, Communication and Information
  • Rachel Rinaldo, Department of Sociology
  • Professor John Willis, Department of History
