Islam in Bayern – Lecture Series and Worldcafé on 18th July 2018
18th July 2018 at 6 pm, the event Islam in Bayern – Vortragsreihe und Worldcafé will take place at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences in Munich (in German language).
Project leader Prof. Dr. Mathias Rohe will present the essential results of the study “Islam in Bavaria”. The study was commissioned by the Bavarian Academy of Sciences at EZIRE between 2015 and 2018 and was funded by the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and the Arts, accompanied by a series of lectures on “Religion and Society”. “Islam in Bavaria” focussed on religion, but at the same time was broad-based and also considered multiple identities and migration-related issues or problems such as language skills, education, ethnic peculiarities and conflicts, communication cultures and the general social debate with repercussions on Muslim communities. As the first such study in a German country, it has considerable scientific and political significance.
After the presentation of the study, “Topic Islands” of the Worldcafé will offer an opportunity for in-depth exchange with the participating scientists. The thematic islands are going to deal with the following topics: Islamic associations and cooperation (Prof. Dr. Mathias Rohe), legal questions (Ass.iur., Verena Kühnel, Ass.iur., Maximilian Linke), Islamic education (Prof. Dr. Tarek Badawia), hospice and Palliative Care (Katharina Jahn MA), Prison Pastoral Care (Julia Krekel MA), Radicalization and Salafism (Dr. Mahmoud Jaraba), Islamophobia & Islam in the border triangle Lake Constance (Dr. Hüseyin Çiçek) as well as with the history of Islam and its research in Bavaria (Dr. Jörn Thielmann).
