Neil Gotanda Presents at American Bar Foundation Research Seminar

Professor Neil Gotanda presented at the American Bar Foundation Research Seminar Series in Chicago, Illinois, on May 17.  His work in progress is titled Mapping the Muslim Category: an Examination of Race, Identity, Religion and the Black-White Paradigm.  The paper surveys the use of the Muslim Category in the current litigation challenging the Executive Order Muslim Travel Ban and through use of the Muslim Category in constitutional doctrine.  The paper then interrogates the Muslim category in two prevalent framings – race and religion – using Critical Race Theory and Asian American Jurisprudence.  The draft paper is available at the ABF website.
