POLITICAL SCIENTIST TO DISCUSS MUSLIMS AND CIVIL LIBERTIES IN POST-9/11 UNITED STATES AT UCSB AFFILIATES TOWN FORUM

Thursday, December 5, 2002 - 16:00
Santa Barbara, CA

Since the terrorist attacks of last year in the United States, civil liberties and increased national security have struggled to find equilibrium within American society. Attitudes about Muslims living in the United States also have been in flux.

In "Muslims and Civil Liberties in the United States," a UCSB Affiliates Town Forum lecture, Kathleen Moore will present her research into post-Sept. 11 attitudes on civil liberties, Muslims, the Patriot Act and other issues. Moore, a professor of law and society at UCSB, will speak at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12 at the Chase Palm Park Recreation Center, 236 E. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara.

Tickets are $5 for UCSB Affiliates and Chancellor's Council members and $8 for the general public. Advance registration is requested and can be made by calling the UCSB Office of Community Relations at 893-4388.

Moore has written extensively about the practice of Islam in America and is the author of "Al-Mughtaribun: American Law and the Transformation of Muslim Life in the United States," a pioneering look at Muslim encounters with the American legal system. Her current research, a survey of American attitudes about immigration and civil liberties since the Sept. 11 attacks, is funded by the National Science Foundation.
