Islamophobia, the War on Terror, and US Imperialism
Deepa Kumar, Associate Professor of Media Studies at Rutgers University is a well-known author and media figure who has spoken at dozens of university and community forums on Islamophobia, Political Islam, U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, and women and Islam. Kumar has shared her expertise in media outlets that include Free Speech TV, the BBC, The New York Times, NPR and USA Today.
Kumar's work is driven by an active engagement with the key issues that characterize our era of neoliberalism and imperialism. Her first book, Outside the Box: Corporate Media, Globalization and the UPS Strike (University of Illinois Press, 2007) is about the power of collective struggle in effectively challenging the priorities of neoliberalism. Her latest book, titled Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire, examines ways in which the "Muslim enemy" has historically been mobilized to suit the goals of empire. Kumar has been active in various social movements for peace and justice and has written numerous articles in both scholarly journals and alternative media.
