Dr Sadek Hamid speaks on Islam’s New Cultural Producers

Sadek Hamid Wednesday 16 December 2015

British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow Dr Sadek Hamid was invited this week  to speak at a seminar in Barcelona organised by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed), where he delivered a presentation on “Invisible Muslims: Islam’s New Cultural Producers.” 

He explained that: “In light events in recent times, Muslim young people have become the focus of suspicion and fear in Europe and are most commonly associated with religious conservatism, crime or vulnerability to violent radicalisation with very little attention has been paid to how they participate in their societies in a positive way. My presentation offered an alternative perspective to these dominant representations by highlighting their engagement in the fields of civil society, arts and culture.”

 

He was also interviewed by the Spanish Cataluña Radio station in which he discussed his current research on British and American Muslims attitudes to the concept of Jihad.
