How is diversity within Islam addressed? What implications does this have if Islam is represented as religion, culture or art? Does the emergence of Islam-oriented networks and initiatives contribute to a new understanding of Islam? And if so, how? This event brought together researchers and practitioners to discuss these questions and reflect upon the ways in which Islam is represented in different museum contexts.
The workshop was divided into two sessions and each of them included a lively discussion among participants.
