CFP: Muslims, Sport and Physical Activity

CALL FOR PAPER:
MUSLIMS, SPORT and PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

7 December 2015, Leuven-Belgium

Institute for Media Studies, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, and Gülen Chair at KU Leuven organize an international workshop on Muslims, Sport and Physical Activity. This workshop attempts to provide more insight on the relationship between Muslims who live in Europe and sports-physical activity. We would like to examine how Muslims make sense of religion and their religious identity in sportive activities and how public policies are organized vis-a-vis the needs of the Muslim populations in Europe. During this workshop we want to adress a range of issues such as space, gender, social inclusion, multiculturalism, citizenship, politics of identity and secularism.

Deadline for application: 20th September 2015.
