The 2016 Helen Merrell Lynd Colloquium

Time: 9:30am-6:30pm

Location: Donnelley Theatre, Heimbold Visual Arts Center

1 Mead Way, Yonkers/Bronxville, NY 10708

This interdisciplinary colloquium brings together scholars whose work addresses the multiplicity of lived human experiences and practices of Muslims, past and present. Inspired by, and in homage to, the late Shahab Ahmed (1966-2015), the colloquium seeks to take up Dr. Ahmed's charge to explore "the historical and human phenomenon that is Islam in its plentitude and complexity

of meaning." Presentations will engage with Muslim histories, art and architecture, poetry, and law as well as their mobilities and productive practices across time and space.
