Leiden University Centre for the Study of Islam and Society
LUCIS produces various video series in cooperation with Faithful to the Subject and Science ON AIR to showcase the variety of expertises available at Leiden University.
The Passion in Profession series features researchers who are specialised in Islamic, Middle Eastern and Central Asian studies. With the series, LUCIS aims to show what inspires them in their work by highlighting an object or concept that they feel passionate about.
The Leiden | Islam interview series contains short documentary-style videos including interview flashes with leading scholars in the field of Islam and Muslim societies. With this series, LUCIS aims to show the value of unconventional insights related to Islam and Muslim societies, and to relate them to current issues in society. The videos contain flashes of an interview with the scholar, accompanied by vivid imagery to capture the scholar’s fascination for his or her research.
LUCIS works with Science ON AIR to put its researchers in the spotlight. For that purpose, several online videos of LUCIS members have been produced.
