Critical Muslim Studies:
Decolonial Struggles, Theology of Liberation and Islamic Revival
Granada, Spain - From Monday May 23 to Sunday June 3, 2016

Application Deadline: February 5, 2016

The international Summer School, Critical Muslim Studies: Decolonial
Struggles and Liberation Theologies, is an intensive seminar composed
of several courses (all of them held in English language) that aims at
opening the space for the analysis and investigation of Islam not only
as a spiritual tradition, but also as an epistemic decolonial
perspective that offers contributions and responses to the problems
that humanity faces today. This becomes even more relevant with the
rise of the Arab revolutions, the processes towards the formation of
an Islamic Theology of Liberation and the ongoing inter-religious
dialogues across the world. The Summer School is held in Granada, one
of the major centers of Al-Andalus (Islamic Spain). This course is
offered through the Center for the Study of Mediterranean Dialogues in
Spain, in collaboration with the Ethnic Studies Program at the
University of California, Berkeley. The seminar will be held in the
Carmen de la Victoria of the University of Granada.
