This talk examines the relation between Islamophobia as the dominant form of racism today and the ecological crisis. It looks at the three common ways in which the two phenomena are seen to be linked: as an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation. The talk proposes a fourth way of linking the two: an argument that they are both emanating from a similar mode of being, or enmeshment, in the world, what is referred to as ‘generalised domestication.’

They had me at “enmeshment.”

Too bad I didn’t know about this sooner, or in the next room I’d have hosted a related forum: “Are Professors from Melbourne, Australia Who Fly All the Way to Massachusetts Just to Hold Stupid Seminars Accelerating Global Warming?”
