Invitation by the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies at the University of Copenhagen, to a Carsten Niebuhr Lecture at the David Collection (Davids Samling) by Prof. Rob Gleave, University of Exeter
The lecture will take place at the museum on Thursday, November 25, at 3 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.
What is distinctive about Shia Islam? And what, for that matter, is distinctive about Sunni Islam? The lecture will reflect over the complementarity of Shia and Sunna, throughout Muslim history and indeed in the Western study of Islam, as well.
The lecturer and recipient of the Carsten Niebuhr prize, Rob Gleave, is Professor in Arabic and Islamic studies, Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter, UK. He has published several books on early Islam, Islamic law, Shia Islam, and violence in Islamic thinking. A recent interest is the study of Islamic law in a British context.
