Douglas Murray and The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam

Douglas Murray (b. 1979) is a British author, columnist, and conservative political commentator, who is currently the associate editor of the world’s oldest weekly magazine, The Spectator. Murray’s book called ‘The Strange Death of Europe’, published in 2017, has been described as “a highly personal account of a continent and a culture caught in the act of suicide.” In this course, we will engage critically with Murray’s contentious claims that declining birth rates, mass immigration (and a crisis of cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred) have rendered Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting comprehensive changes to their society.
