The event was part of a transnational research project entitled Media and Scholarly Islamophobia: a transnational study of discourses and their impact, directed by the anthropologist Abdelwahed Mekki-Berrada, from the University of Laval, in Québec-Canada, which questions the notion of ‘Islamophobia’ and analyses its discursive manifestations in French-speaking countries (France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada) and in the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal and Spain).

The ongoing research is being developed in Portugal by a Communication Studies team of CECC-Research Centre for Communication and Culture, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, and by a team of anthropologists from CRIA-Centro em Rede de Investigação em Antropologia, NOVA University of Lisbon, coordinated, respectively, by Camila Arêas and José Mapril.
