In her lecture Ruth Mas will address the political dimensions of secular-liberal conceptions of time. She takes the approach that the discourse about Muslims and terrorism is part of the repertoire of a secular-liberal policy that sees itself as progressive and thus denies legitimacy to non-secular concepts of time.
Ruth Mas is currently a visiting researcher at the Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies. Her research focuses on the intellectual and political dimensions of contemporary Islam.
