The 10th lecture in the Islamic Literacy Series is entitled “Islam, Modernity and Reform” and will be presented by Abbas Rattani

The lecture will explore the question of whether there is a clash between the “Western” world and “Muslim world?”  It will examine what some of the leading intellectuals in Islamic thought are discussing today including an introductory survey of current intellectual discourse regarding topics of human rights, theology, politics, and identity.  We will consider the intellectual  contributions of Tariq Ramadan, Abdullahi an-Na’im, Nasr Abu Zayd, Shirin Ebadi, and others.
