DATE CHANGED FROM 26TH NOVEMBER
Chair, New Horizons in British Islam
This session will cover a brief history of the presence of Islam and Muslims in Britain and will introduce the notion of internal diversity and the most important sects present in the UK in order to set the context. The presentation will then focus on some of the current topics of debate around Islam and the response of Muslims, including the need for reform if there is to be a meaningful way forward in the process of integration.
Our speaker talks, uninterrupted for 20 minutes, to introduce his topic. During a break to get drinks, the Hat goes round. Then there is an hour’s chaired question and answer session. Cafe Sci is funded by the Hat (no sponsors). We suggest a contribution £5 (waged) or £2 - £3 (unwaged). Full details
