Abstract

This paper traces the discourse of "angry Muslim men" in popular culture, and examines the pedagogical work of the neocolonial project underlying that discourse. In so doing, the paper considers how public discourse about the Middle East and Islam have historically been organized, presented, and understood in Western colonial ideology.
