From mosques in Denmark to mosques of Denmark

How mosques are becoming part of the legal and economic framework in Denmark. First ICSRU workshop of Spring 2020, with Lene Kühle.

2020.02.23 | Mark Sedgwick

Date Mon 09 Mar
Time 14:15 16:00
Location 1451-516

Lene Kühle's presentation will take its point of departure in a newly published book, Danmarks Moskeer (Mosques of Denmark), co-authored with Malik Larsen. On the basis of this book, the presentation will discuss the conflicts in the Hamad bin Khalifa Civilization Center in Copenhagen, which on the one hand have received substantial donations from Qatar and Kuwait, and on the other hand attempts to produce a new way to be a mosque that is markedly Danish.

The presentation will be preceded, as usual, by news and introductions.
