CFP: The Crux of Islam in Europe: Ethnic and Religious Transformations in European Contexts
This panel seeks to address both the renewed interest in Christianity in a seemingly post-Christian Europe and Islam as a perceived threat not only to Christianity, but also to the process of secularization in Europe. How do European writers and intellectuals depict these ongoing religious and ethnic struggles? How are these struggles transforming Europe? What role does the process of European integration play?
Possible paper topics may include but are not limited to:
British responses to Islam
Orhan Pamuk and the Turkish context
Turkey and the EU
The integration of Catholic Poland in a Post-Christian Europe
The European Constitution and the question of God
”Moslems in Europe”, “Moslems of Europe,” or “European Muslims”?
The renewed interest in religion in Europe
