Asma T. Uddin will be speaking at a seminar on Islam and Religious Freedom at the Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey on Friday and Saturday, July 8 & 9. Brought to you by the Witherspoon Institute.
The Islam and Religious Freedom Seminar is a week-long program for students and professionals in Islam-related fields. In a small seminar setting, led by scholars, religious leaders, and experienced policy makers, participants will explore the intersection of Islam and religious freedom. The seminar will address the topics of religious freedom for Muslim minorities, non-Muslims in Muslim-majority areas, and Muslims in Muslim-majority areas.
We will explore Muslim perspectives on faith and religious freedom, the relationship of religious freedom to societal and individual well being, and religious freedom from the perspectives of philosophy and other faiths. Also we will consider proselytization, conversion, apostasy, blasphemy, and the relation of religion to government. Participation in the seminar will include completing preparatory reading, attending lectures, and contributing to discussions.
