Call for Papers: “Religious? Secular? Re-thinking Islam and Space in Europe” (Workshop: Cambridge, 30 Nov – 1 Dec) – LIMITE : 17/09/2017
Workshop Call for Papers: “Religious? Secular? Re-thinking Islam and Space in Europe”
University of Cambridge, 30th November – 1st December 2017
We invite scholars to present their work for a two-day inter-disciplinary workshop, “Religious? Secular? Re-thinking Islam and Space in Europe”.
This workshop offers a much-needed opportunity to evaluate questions of space within the study of Islam in Europe. It will take place at the University of Cambridge on 30th November – 1st December, bringing together established academic speakers and postgraduate researchers.
The workshop will be inter-disciplinary in character, connecting fields such as religious studies, geography, politics, anthropology, and architecture. We will look to tackle the subject both in breadth (in terms of content and concepts under discussion) and depth (with particular, but not exclusive, interests in German and UK contexts).
Confirmed keynote speakers are Professor Kim Knott (Lancaster University), Professor Riem Spielhaus (University of Göttingen), and Dr. Marian Burchardt (University of Leipzig).
