Mapping Islamophobia

Mapping Islamophobia is a project headed by Grinnell College history and religious studies professor Caleb Elfenbein, with contributions from a number of Grinnell College students and technical support from Mike Conner. The project utilizes a series of powerful interactive maps that document incidents of violence, discrimination, and bias targeting Muslim individuals and communities in the United States. One such map, along with an accompanying interactive timeline, allows visitors to view the prevalence of Islamophobia between the years 2011 and 2018. In addition, these maps allow visitors to investigate Islamophobic incidents by incident type (including legislation, public campaigns, and crimes against people) and the gender of the targeted individual. The team behind Mapping Islamophobia collected information about these incidents from a variety of "media outlets with clear editorial oversight." By selecting individual pins on these maps, visitors can learn more about specific incidents and news sources. The Mapping Islamophobia project also contains Countering Islamophobia, an interactive map that documents "how American Muslim communities have responded to the increasing presence of anti-Muslim hostility in American public life over time." This map highlights community outreach activities, interfaith initiatives, and more.
