The international Summer School, Critical Muslim Studies: Decolonial Struggles and Liberation Theologies, is an intensive seminar composed of several courses (all of them held in English language) that aims at opening the space for the analysis and investigation of Islam not only as a spiritual tradition, but also as an epistemic decolonial perspective that offers contributions and responses to the problems that humanity faces today. This becomes even more relevant with the rise of the Arab revolutions, the processes towards the formation of an Islamic Theology of Liberation and the ongoing inter-religious dialogues across the world. The Summer School is held in Granada, one of the major centers of Al-Andalus (Islamic Spain). This course is offered through the Center for the Study of Mediterranean Dialogues in Spain, in collaboration with the Ethnic Studies Program at the University of California, Berkeley. The seminar will be held in the Carmen de la Victoria of the University of Granada.
Faculty and Affiliated Faculty include internationally recognized Islamic Studies and Ethnic Studies scholars such as:
Iman Zaid Shakir – Salman Sayyid – Tariq Ramadan – Asma Lamrabet – Hatem Bazian – Ramon Grosfoguel – Arzu Merali – Asma Barlas – Houria Bouteldja – Santiago Slabodsky – Farid Esack – Nelson Maldonado-Torres – Ella Shohat – Samia Bano – Nadia Fadil – Abdennur Prado – Sirin Adlbi Sibai – Muhktar Ali – Munir Jiwa – Thomas Reifer – Enrique Dussel
