Who speaks for Muslims?

Who speaks for Muslims?

6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Muslims are regularly presented in a negative light in mainstream media, and as a result, the word terrorism has become almost synonymous with Islam. Similarly, racist hashtags are commonplace online. Social media channels do however offer a space to counter toxicity. Sharing the findings of their British Academy funded research project into the #StopIslam Twitter campaign, Elizabeth Poole and colleagues discuss how – and by who – anti-Muslim sentiment is being challenged online.

Speakers include:Dr Eva Giraud Lecturer in Media, Communication & Culture, Keele University Dr Elizabeth Poole Lecturer in Media Studies, Keele University Dr Ed de Quincey Senior Lecturer, Keele University

Free, booking required. 

As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.

Cost: Free of Charge
