“Is Our World Deglobalizing? And What Does It Mean for Racial and Religious Minorities?” is the topic of the annual Imam Khattab Lecture on Islamic Thought.

Dr. Ovamir, UToledo Imam Khattab Endowed Chair of Islamic Studies and associate professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, will give the free, public lecture at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, on Webex.

“Driven by technological changes such as automation, environment and cultural nativism, deglobalization has been accelerated by the current pandemic,” Anjum said. “We will examine the potential pros and cons of this development, focusing in particular on the perspectives of racial and religious minorities and how we might better prepare for it.”

The event is part of the UToledo Center for Religious Understanding’s annual lecture series, which has been active for more than a decade. The center promotes a deeper understanding of religion on campus and throughout greater Toledo.
