‘Prevent Duty’, Islam and Extremism Seminar – Mapping the Field and Future Projects
Current initiatives in counter-terrorism, the fear of extremism in education and the requirement for schools to promote fundamental British values have generated significant issues in relation to the teaching of Islam, freedom of speech and religious and political liberty. Many of the issues raised by these developments from teacher identity and professionalism to the way schools and universities engage with controversial political agendas raise questions about diversity and censorship in all areas of education.
This seminar builds on the successful event last May 2018 and is for researchers and doctoral students currently engaged in research in these areas or for those interested in exploring the different ways in which academics and teachers are negotiating developments in the place of Islam in education, Prevent and extremism.It will provide a space to share ideas, map interests and consider collaborative projects. We aim to provide an opportunity to discuss issues:
- Prevent Duty, Extremism, Islam
- Sharing your approaches to investigating these controversial areas
- Issues raised by research (eg ethical, access)
- Implications and dissemination
- Funding opportunities and collaborations.
The ‘sharing’ session will be followed by a ‘mapping the field’ session to see how delegates can collaborate and apply for funding to undertake further research.
