ENIS/NISIS-MIDA Spring School Indonesia 2022:
“Mobility and Mobilisation in Muslim Societies”
Date: March 21-27, 2022
Venue: Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Registration Deadline: November 1, 2021
The international Spring School “Mobility and mobilisation in Islamic societies” is co-organised by the European Network for Islamic Studies (ENIS), formed by the European Research Program “Mediating Islam in the Digital Age” (MIDA) and the Netherlands Interuniversity School of Islamic Studies (NISIS), Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University, Yokyakarta, and International Islamic University of Indonesia.
The Spring School addresses the topic of mobility and mobilisation in Muslim societies, past and present. Mobility and mobilisation are two interrelated dimensions in the fabric of Muslim societies that have played an important role in shaping these societies’ religious, intellectual and political developments throughout the centuries.
Taking movement as a mediating practice, the objective of the Spring School is to study how mobility of people – both in the past and in the present, be they Muslims or non-Muslims, inside and outside the Islamic world, in the ‘real world’ and in cyberspace – has affected the relationship of Muslim societies with their own past, their understanding of their present environment, the formation or deconstruction of entrenched or new stereotypes, and their local dynamics of political and/or intellectual mobilisation.
Confirmed keynote speakers for the school: Azyumardi Azra (Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University, Jakarta), Ismail Fajri Alatas (New York University), Claudia Derichs (Humboldt University Berlin), Edith Franke (Marburg University), Syamsul Rijal (UIN Jakarta), and Martin van Bruinessen (Utrecht University).
