Cemil Aydin: “Muslim Societies Since 1945”
March 23, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm$18
There are more than 1.5 billion Muslim faithful spread over six continents. Muslims can be Arab, British, African, French, Persian, Indonesian, Indian, American or any other nationality, and yet it is still common to hear discussions of “Muslims” as though there were a monolithic bloc. While the diversity of Muslim experiences since 1945 makes generalizing difficult, there have been some shared pressures and developments throughout the Islamic world. Join Cemil Aydin as he discusses some of the changes and developments in select Muslim societies over the past 70 years. In a time when stereotypes prevail, this lecture will provide needed historical context and perspective.
