The Paul Scholten Centre for Jurisprudence cordially invites you to a colloquium with Tariq Modood. On Wednesday 16 October (12:-13h) we will discuss Modood’s new book Discussing secularism and multiculturalism. Abstract: In this collection of essays, Tariq Modood argues that to grasp the nature of the problem we have to see how Muslims have become a target of a cultural racism, Islamophobia. Yet, the problem is not just one of anti-racism but of an understanding of multicultural citizenship, of how minority identities, including those formed by race, ethnicity and religion, can be incorporated into national identities so all can have a sense of belonging together. This means that the tendency amongst some to exclude religious identities from public institutions and the re-making of national identities has to be challenged. Modood suggests that this can be done in a principled yet pragmatic way by drawing on Western Europe’s moderate political secularism and eschewing forms of secularism that offer religious groups a second-class citizenship. Bio: Tariq Modood is Professor at the the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies at Bristol University and director of the University Research Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship. Discussant: Yolande Janssen, Senior Researcher at the department of philosophy  of the University of Amsterdam. Date: Wednesday 16 October Time: 12-13hr Venue: room A7.23 (Faculty room), Amsterdam Law School, building REC A Nieuwe Achtergracht 166, Amsterdam – Google maps More info Looking forward to welcoming you at this colloquium Roland Pierik Director Paul Scholten Center for Jurisprudence University of Amsterdam Law School
