CFP for Arab American panels at the American Sociological Association Conference
The American Sociological Association will have 2 panels on Arab Americans–see below for details. If you would like to submit, paper submissions are due 1/11/18 midnight EST. More information here.
1] Regular Session: Arabs and Arab Americans
2] Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, Section Session: Feeling Race: Arabs and Muslims in the United States
Arabs and Muslims are often studied in tandem because they experience anti-Arab and anti-Muslim racism similarly. Papers addressing the US experiences of either or both groups are welcome on this panel. Pursuant to the call of ASA President Bonilla-Silva, we particularly invite papers that explore both negative and positive emotions associated with racial dynamics such as sources of pride, comfort, and solidarity that may mitigate the emotional impacts of fear and anxiety, as well as papers that address the emotions of both dominant and subordinated actors in racialized situations, exemplified by the way chants of “USA! USA!” produce rushes of arrogance for some and a sense of fear for others.
