Topics in Religious Studies: Issues in Contemporary Islam with Seth Ward @ Natrona County High School
Mar 15 @ 9:45 AM – 11:45 AM
Topics in Religious Studies: Issues in Contemporary Islam with Seth Ward @ Natrona County High School | Casper | Wyoming | United States

How does Islam interact with Modernity?  Given the contemporary discourse about issues related to Islam, it is important to discuss matters such as conservative or fundamentalist religious movements, human right issues, politicized religion and misgovernment, religion and science, and many others in an atmosphere that recognizes the issues have Islamic manifestations that are culturally unique yet hardly limited to Islam, and with an approach that avoids seeing Islam simply as a set of issues and problems.

Dr. Ward’s presentation extends beyond the news to highlight selected contemporary trends and movements among the world’s Muslim people.  A brief and condensed introduction to the history and religion of Islam is followed by a discussion of a few contemporary Islamic topics reflecting current issues, that have been identified and examined by University of Wyoming students during a semester long course taught by the presenter.
