NISIS Autumn School 2018: Travelling Muslims

About The Event

Date: October 15-18, 2018

Venue: University of Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands

From Monday 15 until Thursday 18 October 2018, the eighth annual NISIS Autumn School will take place at the University of Groningen. This year’s Autumn School themed ‘Travelling Muslims’ is organized by NISIS and the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Groningen in cooperation with the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).

Islam and Muslims have a rich history of travelling. Whether motivated first and foremost by religion, as in pilgrimage and journeys to seek knowledge, or for economic reasons or simply seeking pleasure, travel has an impact on one’s world view and habits.  In this Autumn School, we investigate how various kinds of travel have informed Muslims religious views, practices, and different senses of belonging.  In particular, we will look into three, often interrelated kinds of travel:  pilgrimage, migration, and ‘holidaying’.

Confirmed speakers are:

– Kholoud al-Ajarma (University of Groningen)
– Nico Kaptein (Leiden University)
– Ammeke Kateman (University of Amsterdam)
– Heleen van der Linden (VU Amsterdam)
