Mapping Islamophobia

Mapping Islamophobia

Developed by Prof. Caleb Elfenbein and Chloe Briney '17 in consultation with the DLAC, Mapping Islamophobia is an interactive visual representation of Islamophobic incidents in the U.S.. Islamophobia has become a presence in American public life as never before.

From September 2001 through today, American Muslims have faced incredible pressure to prove “Americanness,” making it more and more difficult to participate in public debates about the public good in free and voluntary terms. Many of us have read or heard about Islamophobic incidents. The goal of this project is to present in visual terms how these incidents accumulate over time to create certain conditions of public life for American Muslims.
