In this lecture Dr. Shoaib will introduce us to the movement known as New Atheism. This talk will include a look at the main and secondary figures of the movement, their criticisms levied at religion and, when possible, at Islam, and the various ways New Atheists have tried to encroach on the wider society from an ideological and sociopolitical perspective. Furthermore, this talk will involve a critical dissection of how and where their criticisms remain unwarranted. Some points mentioned in this lecture will be picked from Dr. Shoaib’s recent monograph entitled *Atheism and Islam: A Contemporary Discourse* and from his wider research on New Atheism and Islam.
