Saturday University Lecture Series
ISLAM ACROSS ASIA: Art Practices / cultural politics
January 28 – April 1, 2017
Seattle University Campus
A majority of the world’s Muslim population lives in Asia. This is an opportune time to explore diversity among their communities. The series provides historical, cultural, and contemporary perspectives on Islam and the arts, from Central Asia to Indonesia. Beginning with this season, Saturday University Series will be held at the Seattle University campus, primarily in the spacious Pigott Hall.
The popular Saturday University Lecture Series brings in national, local, and international speakers to delve into a unique theme for each series. Every year we host a winter/spring and a fall series, in partnership with the University of Washington Jackson School of International Studies. Our mornings begin with coffee and book browsing (thanks to the Elliott Bay Book Company), and conclude with an audience discussion with the speaker.
I spend all week thinking about last Saturday’s lecture, and looking forward to the next one.
Auditorium seating is primarily through advance series subscriptions with limited individual lecture tickets sold at the door.
Teachers attending three or more lectures in a series are eligible for FREE clock hours. Sign in at each lecture required.
Saturday University is presented in partnership with the University of Washington Jackson School of International Studies and the Elliott Bay Book Company.
