Akbar Ahmed’s Journey into Europe

Film Screening & Discussion

Wednesday, April 5

5:30 p.m.

Mary Graydon Center 2

Ambassador Akbar Ahmed, the world-renowned Islamic scholar, anthropologist, and filmmaker, explores Islam in Europe and the place of Islam in European history and civilization in this unprecedented study. In the film, shot across the continent in countries such as Germany, the U.K., France, Spain, and Bosnia, we meet some of Europe’s most prominent figures, including presidents and prime ministers, grand muftis, archbishops, chief rabbis, heads of right-wing parties, recently-arrived migrants, and every-day Europeans from a variety of backgrounds.

It is hard to exaggerate the importance of this work.” – Dr. Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury
