Prejudice towards Arabs/Middle Easterners

November 29, 2017 at 11:00-12:15 in UAC 275

Prejudice towards Arab/Middle Easterners has existed in this country ever since the first immigrants settled in the United States. Yet, despite the current climate, relatively little is known about this pan-ethnic minority group that is plagued with prejudice and discrimination. In this colloquium presentation, I will discuss the predictors of prejudice towards Arab/Middle Easterners and how this problem is complicated by the conflation of religion and ethnicity. In addition, I will present a study of Arab/Middle Eastern Americans’ perceptions of discrimination, with special attention to the issues of religious identification and acculturation.
