MUSLIM FUTURES conference 8/06/2024

WHEN: 08.06.2024, Saturday

WHERE: Sigmund Freud Private University, IFIME, Room: E603 Freudplatz 3, 1020 Vienna


Who has the privilege to dream – and who does not? What circumstances need to be created to think about Muslim Futures? At a time when racist discourses and policies are affecting the imaginations of Muslims, how does this affect visions for Muslim Futures? How do Muslims shape their identities and their presence in a world that – among many other challenges – is increasingly characterized by anti-Muslim racism? Can Muslim Futurism be used as an approach to support the development of future strategies by and for Muslims and demonstrate the important role that art and culture can play in this?

THE CONFERENCE TAKES PLACE IN COOPERATION WITH Sigmund Freud PrivatUniversität Wien, IFIME, Interdisciplinary Research center Islam and Muslims in Europe; FWF Forschungsprojekt Conviviality as Potentiality (AR 679), Erasmus+ and Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien as well as Muslim Futures and Superrr Lab, Berlin.
