Intergroup Sentiments & Interpretations of Islam among Muslims: The Role of Demography & Social Interactions

Friday, February 15, 2019 - 12:00 - 13:30

This Prentice Institute Brown Bag Talk by Syed H. Ali will explore Muslims’ attitudes toward non-Muslims and their religious views using two different datasets of PEW Research Center, which cover more than 30,000 Muslim respondents in 37 countries. In addition, the presentation will highlight how different forms of social experiences of Muslims, as a minority/majority population and the nature of their interactions with non-Muslims, influence their intergroup attitudes and interpretations of Islam.

Syed H. Ali is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at the University of Calgary and has been awarded a SSHRC Ph.D. Fellowship.  His thesis is on the integration of Muslim minorities in the West. He obtained an MSc. (Management) from the University of Lethbridge in 2015, prior to which he was a full-time lecturer at Iqra University in Karachi. In Pakistan, he spent a number of years studying Muslim theology and law with traditionally trained clerics. At present, aside from his doctoral studies, he works as an Integration Program Officer for the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in Calgary.
