Travelling Muslims

Islam and Muslims have a rich history of travelling. Whether motivated first and foremost by religion, as in pilgrimage and journeys to seek knowledge, or for economic reasons or simply seeking pleasure, travel has an impact on one’s world view and habits.  In this Autumn School, we  investigate how  various kinds of travel have informed Muslims religious views, practices, and different senses of belonging.  In particular, we will look into three, often interrelated kinds of travel:  pilgrimage, migration, and ‘holidaying’.
