Critical Muslim Studies: Decolonial Struggles, Theology of Liberation and Islamic Revival  in Granada, Spain

The international Summer School, Critical Muslim Studies: Decolonial Struggles, Theology of Liberation and Islamic Revival, is an intensive seminar composed of several courses (all of them held in English language) that aims at opening the space for the analysis and investigation of Islam not only as a spiritual tradition, but also as an epistemic decolonial perspective that offers contributions and responses to the problems that humanity faces today. This becomes even more relevant with the rise of the Arab revolutions, the processes towards the formation of an Islamic Theology of Liberation and the ongoing inter-religious dialogues across the world. The Summer School is held at a historic and symbolic site of Islamic Civilization and one of the major centers of Al-Andalus (Islamic Spain), the city of Granada in Spain. This course is offered through the Center of Study for Intercultural Dialogues, in Spain, in collaboration with the Ethnic Studies Program at the University of California, Berkeley. The seminar will be held in the Carmen de la Victoria at the University of Granada.
