A Journey towards Identity: Young Muslims, Generation Gaps and Global Perils

[Event has ended]
Thu, 9 April 2009, 3pm to 4.30pm | English

Lectures

Associate Professor Gabriele Marranci, from a comparative approach, will discuss the experiences of young Muslims in the UK and Singapore who are seeking their own identities.

Although the UK and Singapore have very different Muslim populations, with the majority of young Muslims in the UK being of South Asian origin while the majority in Singapore are Malay, his research has highlighted interesting similarities. This is particularly true in the case of the generation gap and what he refers to as ‘global perils', some of which are common to all young people today, but others that are very specific to the Muslim population in a post 9/11 context.
