Join us on Thursday, October 28th, from 4-6 PM ET as we wrap up Halaloween with a panel discussion on Muslim horror, the use (and misuse) of Islam and the Quran in the horror genre, feminist politics in horror, and how each region differs in its creation of horror films.
This panel will feature experts and scholars: Dr. Karla Mallette, Dr. Kristian Petersen, Sena Duran, Dr. Alireza Doostdar, and Dr. Alicia Izharuddin.
The panelists will offer some insight on Muslim horror, the Islamic theological and mythological figure of the jinn, women, gender, and sexuality in Muslim horror films, and a scholarly approach to understanding horror and genre films in the Muslim world.
This event is free and open to everyone. This event is a part of Halaloween: A Muslim Horror Film Festival, brought to you by the Global Islamic Studies Center.
