Event description

Description

Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies is hosting a series of community conversations on what it is to be Muslim in the Lower Mainland. The events will be small gatherings of individuals in order to build relationships and unpack the experience of having complex Muslim identities in our current context. This is not intended to be conversations centred on Islam, theoretical or religious perspectives but rather a dialogue centred around people's lived experience. We hope to have a graphic facilitation artist present at each dialogue who will generate a graphic recording of the conversation (while maintaining participants' anonymity) that will be shared with the wider community afterwards.


Dialogue 2: On Unceded Territory

In the 13th century, a famous Muslim theologian refused to eat food grown on land that was meant to be given as an endowment but was taken into private ownership over time. His stance inspires us to ask what it means to be Muslim when living on unceded territory? We'll be hosting a dialogue that probes our role as Muslims in a settler-colonial state.

For more information feel free to contact Aslam, at abulbulia@gmail.com

We would like to respectfully acknowledge that the land this event takes place on is the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.
