A group of interdisciplinary scholars has created the #IslamophobiaIsRacism syllabus to provide resources for teaching and learning about anti-Muslim racism in the United States.  It is a useful to reflect the intersection of race and religion as a reality of structural inequality and violence rooted in the longer history of US (and European) empire building. It focuses mainly on the United States but is brilliantly done and should be adapted to include anti-Muslim racism in Canada.
