Islam and Creativity in Popular Culture is a three-day online course hosted by the Aga Khan Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilizations that addresses the many new expressions of mass mediated creative arts that make reference to Islam. Registration is rolling.
These expressions may be motivated by a wish to express an Islamic interpretation or spirituality, but they may also be for other reasons, such as from anti-racism or critical perspectives. Muslims, as well as non-Muslims, take part in this ongoing art making process. By looking into a number of exciting and intriguing case-studies, and by combining this with the latest theoretical ideas in the field, this course aims to enable participants to individually analyze and comprehend contemporary creativity in relation to Islam.
The course will be held on September 12, 19, and 26, 2022, from 1:30-4:00 P.M. London time.
