About the Seminar
In her seminar, Welmoet Boender will discuss the first draft of a paper that discusses the current state of institutional, intellectual and didactical integration of Islamic Theology at publicly funded Western European universities. Her account shows how the programs are positioned in shifting domains of religious, academic, political, social and cultural legitimacy. Written as a ‘mapping study’, the paper will offer a contextual, analytical and comparative framework for an evaluative, evidence-based discussion of the emergence of Islamic Theology as a new scientific field.
