In 2020, Jakob Skovgaard-Petersen published the much-discussed book Muslimernes Muhammad - og alle andres (The Muslim's Muhammad - and everyone else's). In this talk, he will present an outline of the book and focus on some of the editorial choices he made. These relate to the presentation of the historical sources, the illustrations and embodiments of the prophet, and the handling of contemporary discussions of Islam in the Muslim, European and Danish public debate.

Jakob Skovgaard-Petersen is professor of Islam and the Arab world at the University of Copenhagen.

The talk will be followed by a reception and a networking dinner. Please indicate at forms.gle/MnX8kkjbV1Xb1xoP6 which of these you intend to attend.
