    Public Lecture: ‘How to think about Muslim Difference’ by Youshaa Patel

    The Song School, 109A Iffley Road, Oxford, OX4 1EH. 17.00 – 19.00

Moderating cross-cultural imitation and assimilation was as crucial to the construction of Muslim identity and alterity during Islam's formative period as it is today. This lecture situates the religious discourse within Islamic scripture and tradition, casting new light on a long history of how small differences have defined Muslim interfaith encounters.…
