Journal Article — Editor’s Note: Exploring Islamophobia in the Spirit of the Late Nasr Abu-Zayd — by Mohammad H. Tamdgidi
This is the journal editor’s note to the Fall 2010 issue of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge, including the proceedings of an international conference on “Debating Islamophobia,” co-organized by co-editors Gema Martín Muñoz (Casa Árabe-IEAM, Madrid Spain) and Ramón Grosfoguel (the Program of Comparative Studies in the Department of Ethnic Studies at U.C. Berkeley) in Madrid, Spain, in May 2009. Highlighting the lead article contribution of the late Nasr Abu-Zayd (1943-2010) to the volume and dedicating this collection of proceedings to him in celebration of his life and work, the editor surveys the main outlines of other contributions included in the collection in regard to the nature and meaning of Islamophobia and its diverse unfolding in specific national and historical contexts.
