ILSP LUNCH TALK :: THE M WORD: LEGAL CONSTRUCTIONS OF MUSLIM IDENTITY IN THE U.S.
November 13, 2017 @ 12:00 - 13:00
Seval Yildirim, Visiting Researcher, ILSP: SHARIAsource, Harvard Law School
Professor Yildirim will discuss her work-in-progress exploring the legal construction of Muslim identity through a study of U.S. court cases dating back to the 19th century. The paper identifies three distinct typologies of how courts have defined Muslim identity and the broader political and normative implications of legal construction of minority identities in the United States.
