Special Events

Thu., Sep. 20, 2001, 7:00pm
Location: Big 12 Room-Parlor F, Kansas Union
The distinguished Islamic theologian, Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na?im has been called the ?Martin Luther of modern Islam.? Trained in an Islamic religious and legal perspective, he has explored the basis of universal human rights within Islam in particular, and in general the possibility of broad human rights within particular cultural, religious, and national contexts. His work is of immediate relevance to all who are concerned with violence against individuals and groups for reasons of state, religion, or other rationale.

The lecture by Professor An-Na?im is the second in the semester series of the African Studies Fall 2001 seminar series devoted to the media and human rights.

Sponsored by the University of Kansas African Studies Resource Center.
