Islamophobia and Australian Muslim political consciousness in the War on Terror

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article analyses the forms of consciousness that inform Australian Muslim responses to Islamophobia in the context of the War on Terror, particularly since the emergence of Islamic State (‘IS’). As my responses cover a plethora of political action, resistance and conduct, my sites of enquiry are specifically confined to the forms of consciousness that inform the tendency for key Muslim community organisations to issue condemnations of terrorist attacks involving Muslims, on the one hand, and Muslim individual and activists’ responses to Islamophobia on the other. The essential argument I advance is that internalised Islamophobia is one dimension (among many) that works quietly in the shadows of a certain politically reactive consciousness.
