On November 2, 2015, York University Professor Amélie Barras will be providing a lecture entitled “The Everyday Life of Religious Difference: Governing Religion in Quebec” as a part of the Osgoode Colloquim on Law, Religion & Social Thought. The lecture will take place between 12:30pm and 2:00pm in Room 2027 at Osgoode Hall Law School. Part of the abstract for the talk reads as follows:

What is the impact of this discourse of request on how we think about religion and religious pluralism? This talk discusses how this discourse carries expectations regarding the forms Islam takes in Canada, as well as how Muslims should act and perform their faith … it explores to what extent this discourse reflects and influences the everyday experience of devout Muslims. Ultimately, the talk argues that this discourse overlooks the complexity of how they work out, with themselves and with others, their religious practices and commitments.
