Islam and the Continuing Rise of Islamophobia, Encompassing Crescent‏

From September 11, 2001 to the death of Osama Bin Laden; from the banning of the
niqab to the burning the Qur’an; from prohibitions on the wearing of religious
symbols to talk of banning religious practices in public spaces; and, from
Islamic political parties to the Arab Spring of 2011, the topic of Islam and the
rise of Islamophobia continues to be relevant. Given the change in events and
its continued dominance, Encompassing Crescent’s (EC) second issue will cover
this theme from a variety of viewpoints and topics.
EC is currently soliciting articles and book reviews on this theme, which
should be between 2-4 pages (750-1500 words)and submitted no later than June 19,
2011. Send questions on and submission for the second issue to the editors at:
