Book Launch: Al-Andalus Rediscovered: Iberia’s New Muslims by Marvine Howe (Panel)


Date: Nov 27, 2012

Roundtable discussion with:
Marvine Howe, author of Al-Andalus Rediscovered
Jose Moya, Professor of History, Barnard College
Michele Wucker, Director, World Policy Institute
Claudia Dreifus, Writer, New York Times, Science Times

Al-Andalus Rediscovered recounts the “retaking” of Al-Andalus by Iberia’s new Muslims, which include groups as diverse as students, boat workers, female professionals, and clerics, and their successful integration within a strongly Roman Catholic culture. Marvine Howe shares not only the experiences of Iberia’s Muslims but also the actions of Spanish and Portuguese officials, academics, NGOs, and ordinary citizens who have sought better ways to incorporate Muslims and other immigrants into Iberian society-despite domestic and European pressure to do otherwise.

Co-sponsored by the Blinken European Institute (BEI), the Center for Democracy, Toleration and Religion (CDTR), the Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public life (IRCPL), and the World Policy Institute.
