She focuses on self-images and images of others, but also on historical contexts, and finally highlights dominant linguistic images and motifs. Her analysis work in the relatively new field of research shows that there is a racialization of religious affiliation that leads into anti-Muslim racism. This is based on a confluence of categories such as religion, class, constructed race, and gender. (See the publisher’s description of the book)
