Islam in Catalonia

The first event took place on 18 October 2014. Jordi Morearas Social Anthropologist, specialist of Islam and professor at the University Rovira Virgili de Tarragone talked about the situation of Islam in Catalonia from a sociological perspective. Twenty people attended, mainly non-Muslims.

The next event will be on 15 November (during SERIC week) on the subject of Islamic Art in Catalonia from "Castell Formaos" de Balaguer ( a city near Leride), very important during the Muslim period. The speaker will be Eduardo Carrero, Professor of Medieval Art History at the University Autonoma at Barcelona.

Another event is envisaged in December.

The organiser is Carles Peña a bookshop owner in Mollet in Spain who has researched the Muslim community as part of Muslim civilisation studies. His work (Análisis de la comunidad musulmana de Mollet del Vallés) has been published on Al Kalima website.
