New Online Seminar Series on Diasporas / Presentation Katrina Burgess

Dear all,

A few months ago a group of colleagues and I at El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (El Colef) and the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico created an online seminar series on diaspora studies, called the Seminario Permanente de Estudios sobre Diásporas.
During this initial year the presentations have focused primarily on Mexico and its diaspora in the US and the sessions have been held in Spanish. The videos of the first three sessions can be consulted on our Facebook site for anyone interested:
This Thursday, September 28th at 12pm CST (Mexico City / Chicago time) we are happy to announce the participation of Katrina Burgess of Tufts University who will present part of her upcoming book Courting Migrants: How States Make Diasporas and Diasporas Make States, in which she compares the diaspora policies of states such as Turkey and Mexico. Alexandra Délano of the New School will be her commentator.
As mentioned, the seminar is virtual and anyone interested in joining can do so using the following link:
Future sessions will be held in both Spanish and English and will seek to cover cases in both Latin America and in other geographical contexts. Ultimately, we hope to promote collaborative comparative research and dialogue between researchers working on diaspora studies.
For anyone interested in joining our mailing list or in presenting their research within the seminar cycle, please send a brief message to seminariodiasporas@gmail.com or contact me directly at bpbruce@gmail.com or bbruce@colef.mx.
Best,
Benjamin Bruce

CFP:International Conference on Honour Related Conflicts in Copenhagen

Extended call for paper

 International Conference on Honour Related Conflicts on the 22nd and 23rd of November 2018 in Copenhagen

Notice: Due to many requests, we are delighted to announce that the abstract submission deadline for the conference has been extended to the 17th of September!

 The conference aims to bring together leading researchers and research scholars from all of Northern Europe to exchange and share experiences and research on different aspects of so called honour related conflicts.

Our hope is that the conference will help sharpening access to and understanding of what we define as honour related conflicts. In order to strengthen the overall research field the conference deliberately strives to open the door for reflections and different perspectives from adjacent research areas. In doing so, we hope to gain insights into research that can help nuance the understanding of the field and contribute with new angles and interpretations of the subject and its context in a northern european country.

 Therefore, we call for everyone across disciplines to join us with your aspects. Submit your paper to akhj@siri.dk no later than the 17th of October.

Register, and view the programme as well as the call for paper here!

 NB: It is not required to contribute with a paper to attend either of the two conference days. Deadline for registering is the 22nd of October.

THE IDEA OF EUROPEAN ISLAM, by Mohammed Hashas, Routledge 2019

Dears,
I am very happy to share with you my news; my new book is in print officially from today 07 September 2018: The Idea of European Islam: Religion, Ethics, Politics and Perpetual Modernity, Routledge Islamic Studies Series, © 2019, pp. 330.
The book is prefaced by professor Jocelyne Cesari, Georgetown University and University of Birmingham.
 
A  Preview of the book (the Introduction, and summaries of chapters) is here in pdf: https://www.taylorfrancis.com/books/e/9781351604017
Review copy could be requested from here: http://pages.email.taylorandfrancis.com/review-copy-request

Reviews

Mohammed Hashas’s book points to ways to break away from essentialized and inverted perceptions of Islam and Muslims by focusing on the original thinking of European Muslim thinkers who are providing new theological responses to address the specifics of European Muslims, therefore taking a much needed distance from Middle Eastern and/or salafi religious discourses. His work discusses the specificity of European Islamic thinking and emphasizes the importance of considering it as seriously as we consider thinkers in the Middle East or Asia.

Jocelyne Cesari, Georgetown University and University of Birmingham

In this meticulous and frequently brilliant study of the ideas, practices and precedents of European Islam, Mohammed Hashas illuminates and engages intellectual landscapes at the intersection of geography, theology, philosophy and politics. This book deserves a wide readership. After the dust settles, and it always does, The Idea of European Islam will remain on bookshelves and syllabi for years to come.

Jonathan Laurence, Professor of Political Science, Boston College

In a serious effort to capture the contours and details of European Islam, Mohammed Hashas provides an engaging account of several Muslim thinkers in Europe. He provides a theory to discuss the content of Muslim moral philosophy, theology and politics in conversation with leading thinkers based in Europe and those outside the continent in a search for solutions. Provocative as well as engaging. Anyone interested in one of the most important questions regarding the future of Europe in an age of migration and technological acceleration will find this to be an important book.

Ebrahim Moosa, Professor of Islamic Studies, University of Notre Dame, USA.

Thank you very much for sharing the news among the concerned in your contacts. Looking forward to reading the book’s scholarly reception!
