in Dark Horse Coffee House, 
30-34, Hill Street Belfast BT1 2LB
Topic: From haute cuisine to la cuisine

Dr Tariq Ramadan at the Crescent Arts Centre

As part of the Belfast Book Festival the Crescent Arts Centre welcomes Tariq Ramadan for a lecture and Q&A surrounding the ideas presented in his book Islam, The Essentials.

Every few years France gets swept up in a controversy over Tariq Ramadan. Hardly a day goes by without the mention of Islam. And yet, for most people, and in much of the world, Islam remains a little-known religion. Whether the issue is violence, terrorism, women's rights or slavery, Muslims are today expected to provide answers and to justify what Islam is - or is not. But little opportunity exists, either in the media or in society as a whole, to describe Islam: precisely the question this short and extremely accessible book sets out to answer.

Dr Tariq Ramadan is Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University, President of the think tank European Muslim Network (EMN) in Brussels and a member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars.

This event takes place in ..
Crescent Arts Centre
on Thursday 8th June at 5:30pm.
