1. Overview
2nd Annual Symposium by Tokyo Camii Institute – “Empire and Islam”
Date: November 1. 2024 ~ November 3. 2024
Place: Tokyo Camii & Diyanet Turkish Culture Center
Oyama-cho 1-19, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

Central Theme: “Empire and Islam”
Outline: When we ponder the concept of an ’empire,’ we often envision a vast organization or system that governs diverse peoples and territories, expanding its influence. These historical entities, spanning various regions, have left an indelible mark on our collective memory. Additionally, we can’t overlook the ’empires’ that have emerged in modern times, such as those born out of colonialism.

The second symposium will consider the activities of people under ’empires,’ such as politics, economy, art, culture, coexistence, and exchange. We would like to focus on the intersection of Islam and ’empire’ from the past to the present and pursue the following issues with the participants. Your unique perspectives and insights are invaluable to us, and we look forward to your active participation in the discussions.
