You will find important information regarding hotel reservation and

College Faculty and Students is funded by a grant received from the
National Endowment for the Humanities and the Freeman Foundation
offered in collaboration with the East West Center in Hawaii, the
Asian Studies Development Program and The School of Critical Studies
at California Institute of the Arts.

Workshop Overview
Recent events have demonstrated the urgency of understanding the world
of Islam, in all of its diversity, as it becomes one of the largest
and fastest growing religions of the world.  For those of us who
teach, write, or just think about the issues facing us today, a
rudimentary knowledge of Islamic faith, culture, arts and politics has
become increasingly essential. The goal of this workshop is to provide
important insights into Islam and the arts and their cultural,
political, and social significance. The workshop includes lectures,
panel discussions, poetry readings, a music performance and films on
Islam.

A lot of effort has gone into the planning and preparation of this
workshop. We hope College Faculty in Southern California will take
full advantage of the educational and enlightening events featured in
this workshop. Hope to see you in big numbers on October 27th and
28th, 2005.

Thanks
