The Beauty of Islam
Due to the UCU strike the Minerva lecture on 28th February will now be given by June Ward, Chair for the Minerva Series.
The scheduled lecture 'Working with children in the context of insecurity, neglect and abuse: what's special about animal relationships?' has been cancelled due to the UCU strike. June Ward will instead give a lecture on The Beauty of Islam.
June Ward previously lectured nationwide for the Victoria and Albert Museum. Recently she has become concerned that Islam is increasingly synonymous in this country with terrorism and violence. In her lecture she is seeking to redress the balance by covering Islamic Architecture including the Taj Mahal and Gardening, as well as endeavoring to explain why it is that we in this country are historically so ignorant about the subject.
