by TIRN on NOVEMBER 15, 2012: 

The Islamophobia Studies Journal (ISJ), a bi-annual publication “that focuses on the critical analysis of Islamophobia and its multiple manifestations in our contemporary moment,” has published its first issue.

According to the editorial statement, “the inaugural edition of the Islamophobia Studies Journal is an attempt to forge the bonds for strengthening our commitment to justice, to be accountable and responsible for the work that we produce, and more importantly, to focus our passions – the basis of the human condition – as we strive to work in our collective and related projects for justice.”

“This issue presents our first step in defining not only a field of study, but also a critical engagement in the historical, economic, cultural, social, and political production of Islamophobia in the context of the reproduction of Otherness in history. We endeavor to produce quality works that reflect and puts forward the needs of the community – domestic and international – and to place them at the center of our discourse. We hope to articulate a vision of justice and praxis at a time when the will to speak power to truth is most needed.”

The ISJ is a collaborative venture between the following centers and institutions: Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project for the Center for Race and Gender at the University of California, Berkeley; Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Initiative for the School of Ethnic Studies at the San Francisco State University; Center for Islamic Studies at the Graduate Theological Union; International Centre for Muslim and Non-Muslim Understanding a the University of South Australia; and Zaytuna College.
