University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Seminar Series - Islamic Life and Culture
"The Oppression of Women in Islam: Myth or Reality?
"The seminar series seeks to highlight the variety and diversity of Islamic life and culture. Its focus is not on the study or interpretation of religious texts as such, but rather on the experience of Islam, as it is lived out on a daily basis in multicultural societies and as it engages with a wide range of other cultural traditions, some shaped by religious belief but others that are entirely secular. The series aims to address some of the urgent questions relating to the promotion of cultural harmony and mutual understanding in contemporary society, as it becomes increasingly fragmented and polarized."
Speakers are Dr Chris Allen and Dr Laura Zahra McDonald. The event takes place on 18 May 2011. Click on the above for details.
