2019 Public Seminar Series
About The Event
Presented by the Islam UK Centre, Cardiff University
Cardiff University is a leading institution for scholarly teaching about Islam and Muslims in contemporary Britain. The Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK (Islam-UK Centre) is based within the School of History, Archaeology and Religion, which has a wealth of teaching expertise and a lively program of research activity. Within the school’s degree programs there are a range of possibilities for studying Islam and classical Arabic. The Centre has a strong and positive relationship with the local Muslim community.
The center’s Seminar Series is now in its 11th year. What began as very modest in-house graduate-focused seminars, has now developed into a more substantial public-facing program. In recent years, we have especially enjoyed working with external partner organizations, including Equality and Human Rights Commission for Wales, the Welsh Centre for International Affairs, Citizens Wales, and the Welsh branch of the national mental health charity ‘MIND’.
Admission is free and if you want to attend any or all of the Seminars please register via our Eventbrite Website or by using the Lecture calendar on the right.
