New Iqbal Centre launched

iqbalcentreThe Iqbal Centre for the Study of Contemporary Islam seeks to foster understanding of the field of Muslim reformist thought as an area of growing interest in Islamic and Religious Studies. It does so through its dynamic programme of teaching and research activity; supporting and enriching undergraduate and postgraduate study; and bringing Muslim reformist thought to the wider public via a number of media, including conferences, seminar series, workshops and dynamic online resources.

The Centre directors, Mustapha Sheikh and Tajul Islam, are based in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies, and linked to the Arabic, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies subject area.
