2nd Annual Conference on ‘Islam, the West, and Radicalism’ to Be Held in the UK

The second Annual Conference on ‘Islam, the West, and Radicalism’ will be held by The Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies (Royal Holloway, University of London) and the Imam Sadr Foundation (Lebanon).

The Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies (Royal Holloway, University of London) and the Imam Sadr Foundation (Lebanon) invite proposals for the 2019 Annual Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies (CIWAS) Conference on ‘Islam, West, and Radicalism’.

Today, more than in any age and area, the role of Islam in societies across the world is being shaped by the political, economic, and cultural dynamics of West Asia. While many are celebrating the imminent demise of ISIS, acute observers express concern that the persistence of the West Asian socio-political context in which radical ideologies and movements have emerged will generate new radical movements in the region and beyond.

The CIWAS 2019 Annual Conference seeks to address the conference theme by considering a broad range of issues; and we are particularly interested in panel and paper proposals that offer original and under-researched approaches to them.
