Through various mechanisms of engagement with the public (research-creation workshops, symposia, training workshops, documentary projections, presentation of art-science works) this forum will question the writing practices through which researchers, teachers, but also other actors in society (artists, bloggers, journalists, editors, directors) think, represent and discuss Arab and Muslim worlds.
The Aga Khan University London is holding a conference on ‘Media in Muslim Contexts: Inventing and Re-inventing Identities‘ from 3-4 November 2016. The Call for Papers is open until 31 July 2016. The programme will be added as soon as it is available.
