Public Lecture: Secularity as a challenge
On 12 February at 7 p.m., our Senior Research Fellow Wolfgang Höpken will give lecture on “Secularity as a challenge. Religion, nation and modernity in Bosnian Islam from 1878 to today (Säkularität als Herausforderung Der bosnische Islam von 1878 bis zur Gegenwart)” at the Lew Kopelew Forum in Cologne. He will place particular emphasis on the long lines in the discursive confrontation with secularity in Bosnia and Herzegovina and highlight the multi-layered picture that emerges in relation to Islam in today's Bosnia and Herzegovina. Jutta Lauth Bacas (Head of the Cologne branch of the Society for South East Europe) will moderate the evening. The lecture will be held in German.
