Confronting Hate supplements the Mapping Islamophobia project’s data-driven main site, and explores specific stories that exemplify the humanizing work of Muslim Americans. This site considers six distinct events and individuals representing the six main categories of the dataset, and drawing additionally from notes and interviews conducted in field work.

Using data from Mapping Islamophobia’s companion data on humanizing public life, this project explores how Muslim political candidates have taken part in political campaigns between 2012 and 2020.

Download the Datasets

You may download both of our datasets (in .csv format) above. We update the downloadable datasets periodically.

In the “Islamophobia Dataset,” each item includes a date, geolocation and state, an event short name, an event description, a source, and is coded in two ways: (1) an Event Class [using one of six designations, “crimes against people,” “crimes against property,” “public speech,” “public campaigns (targeting community),” bias-related incidents (targeting individual or specific group),” and “legislation (targeting community)”] and (2) Gender of Victim(s). We decided to code incidents and events affecting American Muslim communities in general, as opposed to an individual or group of individuals, “male and female.” Each row of data also includes a short event description, adding further refinement to the coding system.

In the “Countering Islamophobia” dataset, each item includes a date, geolocation, an event short name, an event description, a source, and is coded with one of the following categories: “political outreach,” political activity,” “community outreach,” mosque open house,” “interfaith efforts,” and “ask a Muslim.”
