Public Lecture Series 2010
The Islam-UK centre held its public lecture series in Spring 09. Inspired by the success, the Islam-UK centre has organised a new lecture series for Spring 2010.
The public lecture series is organised to aid the MA/Diploma students in 'Islam in Contemporary Britain' in their studies, but to also allow a chance for academics and students from other schools, and the general public, to attend and gain a better understanding on the various and dynamic aspects related to the study of Islam in the UK.
The series is organised in close dialogue with the Muslim Council of Wales and the Islamic Society of Cardiff University, reflecting the Islam-UK centres community links. The series is now in its fourth year.
This years line up promises to be as engaging as ever, please see below for the itinerary. All lectures will take place at 7pm in Lecture Theatre 2.01, Humanities Building, Column Drive, Cardiff, CF10 3EU.
