FILM & DISCUSSION: Reel Bad Arabs with discussion lead by David McDonald (IU Folklore & Ethnomusicology)

In the documentary, Reel Bad Arabs, Dr. Jack Shaheen reveals a consistent pattern of malicious stereo-typing of Arabs and Muslims in Hollywood films. Dr. Shaheen provides historical comparisons of these representations of Arabs and Muslims to anti-Semitic and racial stereotypes and offers meaningful insights into the deleterious effects of these disturbing and inaccurate portrayals.

Following the viewing of this film, David McDonald from IU’s Folklore and Ethnomusicology department will offer his own insights and lead a discussion about Islamophobia and racial stereotypes in popular culture.
