The Charlie Hebdo attacks have raised questions not only about terrorism and freedom of expression, but also about the place of Islam in Europe—now and in the future. The lecture will be hosted by sociologist Nilüfer Göle. In her lecture, Göle, a professor of sociology at École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris, will consider this matter. The lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer session moderated by political scientist Christine Landfried, Max Weber Professor at NYU.
Göle studies Islamic visibility, secularism, and intercultural controversies in European public spheres. She is the author of “Islam in Europe: The Lure of Fundamentalism and the Allure of Cosmopolitanism” and “The Forbidden Modern: Civilization and Veiling”.
