Seminar Center for Global Humanities Lecture/Seminar Series
Anouar Majid is the founding director of the Center for Global Humanities and vice president for global affairs at the University of New England. His work has dealt with the place of Islam in the age of globalization and Muslim-Western relations since 1492. He has been described by Cornel West in his book Democracy Matters as one of a few "towering Islamic intellectuals."
Majid has been interviewed by several media organizations nationally and internationally. His work has been profiled by Bill Moyers in the Bill Moyers Journal and by Al Jazeera's Date in Exile program. He is one of eight global scholars interviewed by the Dutch philosopher Fons Elders in the film Islam Unknown. The Moroccan newspaper Al Massae ran a full-page profile and interview with him in February 2013.
A reception will be held at 5:00 pm at the UNE Art Gallery
