Online Course – Islam and Creativity in Popular Culture – 12, 19, and 26 September 2022

This is a three-day online course that addresses the many new expressions of mass mediated creative arts that make reference to Islam.

Muslims, as well as non-Muslims, take part in this ongoing art making process.
