“Localizing Islam in Europe”
Dr. Ahmet Yukleyen
Thursday, November 15, 12:15pm
Bryant Hall Lobby
Join us for a brown-bag lunch discussion of Croft Associate Professor of Anthropology Dr. Ahmet Yukleyen’s recently published book Localizing Islam in Europe: Turkish Islamic Communities in Germany and the Netherlands. The book is based on Dr. Yukleyen's extensive fieldwork in Europe and demonstrates how "Islam and Europe have shaped one another" and "that there is no single form of assimilated and privatized 'European Islam' but rather Islamic communities and their interpretations and practices that localize Islam in Europe." Coffee and dessert will be provided.
