The Editors of the new journal Contemporary Islam are pleased to invite you to the one-day symposium "Beyond the Stereotypes: Dynamics of Muslim Life in the Globalized World", to be held on 26 October 2007 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The aims of the symposium are to encourage the academic discussion on the topic and to celebrate the publication/launch of the new journal.
This unique event, with contributions from miriam cooke, Richard Martin, Lawrence Rosen and Bryan Turner will be a ground-breaking mini symposium offering insights into the contemporary dynamics of Muslim life by focusing on questions concerning the presence of Muslims in the West, as well as the relationship that Muslims have with globalization and its consequences on their lives, dreams and everyday experiences.
Earlier this year, Contemporary Islam: Dynamics of Muslim Life, the research journal that focuses on topical issues by taking an interdisciplinary approach that benefits from a cross-cultural perspective, was launched within Springer's Religious Studies publishing program. This program approaches Western and Non-Western religion from the perspective of the social sciences and philosophy, featuring publications that are topical, renewing, and globally-oriented while being at the forefront of research. The first issue of the new journal is freely accessible on springerlink.com
