The Politics of Vulnerability

A Conversation with Asma Uddin

May 4, 2021
12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. EDT
Location: Online Zoom Webinar

In The Politics of Vulnerability (2021), Asma Uddin - American-Muslim public intellectual, religious liberty attorney, and activist - provides a unique perspective on the political and social factors contributing to the Muslim-Christian divide in the United States. Uddin humanizes a contentious relationship by fully embracing both sides as individuals driven by very human fears and anxieties.

In this conversation, Uddin joined Judd Birdsall, senior research fellow at the Berkley Center and project director of the Transatlantic Policy Network on Religion and Diplomacy (TPNRD), to discuss the complexities of religious liberty and politicized vulnerabilities. They also discussed how Islamophobia and other aspects of the conservative Christian movement are interconnected, as well as examined where hate comes from and how it can be conquered.

This event was co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.
