This is an intensive seminar composed of several courses (all of them held in English language) that aims at opening the space for the analysis and investigation of Islam not only as a spiritual tradition, but also as an epistemic decolonial perspective that offers contributions and responses to the problems that humanity faces today. This becomes even more relevant with the rise of the Arab revolutions and counter-revolutions, the processes towards the formation of an Islamic Theology of Liberation and the ongoing inter-religious dialogues across the world. Moreover, as a strong commitment to a vision of Critical Muslim Studies there are two symposiums organized inside the summer school every year: one on Islamic Feminism led by Asma Lamrabet

Faculty and Affiliated Faculty include internationally recognized Islamic Studies and Ethnic Studies scholars:
