Locating Muslim Cinema(s): The Politics of Culture and Identity

Muslim Studies Program 11th Annual Conference

Call for Abstracts

Date: April 12-13, 2018

Venue: 303 International Center, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA

Abstract Submission Deadline: September 1, 2017

Is there a discrete and coherent esthetic enterprise called “Muslim cinema”? If so, does it possess any unique and defining characteristics? And how does it differ from other types of cinema based not on national provenance, but emerging from a diverse set of global religious communities? The Michigan State University Muslim Studies Program is convening a conference in April of 2018 to discuss these three questions from a variety of different perspectives including post-modern and post-colonial theory, Film Studies, socio-political context, and historical development throughout the twentieth century and till the present. 

One of the newer programs within MSU’s International Studies and Programs, the Muslim Studies Program (MSP) supports teaching and research about Muslims around the globe from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Established at MSU in 2006, MSP coordinates research, teaching, and outreach about Muslim societies and states. Additionally, it organizes speakers, workshops, and conferences on a wide range of topics that reflect the rich diversity of Muslim communities around the world. The MSP is unique in the sense that instead of a regional focus, it has a global view of Muslim societies and states. It is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary center whose faculty has appointments in various disciplines of social sciences and humanities at MSU.
