Posted by Alberto Fernández Carbajal in Queering Islam on December 1, 2015
Last week, Dr Samar Habib delivered the opening lecture of the new Queering Islam events series, hosted by Dr Alberto Fernández Carbajal (Leverhulme Fellow, School of English), with a talk entitled ‘States of Being: Narratives of Queer Muslim Diasporas in Contemporary Scholarship’.
Here you can find footage of the lecture and the ensuing Q&A. As Dr Habib intimates in her talk, homosexuality in Islam is a sensitive topic, but one which must be openly discussed nonetheless.
Please feel free to use the comments section of this blog post to let us know your thoughts about the session and whether it has affected you views on queer Muslims and migration.
