The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Spain together with the Mayor's Office of Pedro Abad and the UNESCO Chair in Conflict Resolution of the University of Cordoba have organised the seminar 'Al-Andalus in the memory: past and present', which will consist of nine sessions to be held every Thursday from 19:30 to 21:00 from 23 September 2021.
We want to travel through the past of Al-Andalus to reach the present of Andalusia, showing real models of coexistence that promote multicultural, multi-ethnic and multi-religious relations in the global village in which we live. This situation can be seen today in the village of Pedro Abad, Cordoba, where different religions and ethnic groups have been living together peacefully for decades. This event will be attended by the Mayoress of Pedro Abad, Magdalena Luque, Manuel Torres, Director of the UNESCO Chair of Conflict Resolution at the University of Cordoba, and Abdul Razak, Emir of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The moderator of this event will be Qamar Fazal, organiser of the event.
Also taking part in the sessions will be experts in the field, who have altruistically wished to collaborate with this initiative, including Juan Pedro Monferrer, professor of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Cordoba, Antonio Vallejo, director of the archaeological site of Medina Al-Zahara, Magdalena Martínez, professor of History of Law at the University of Alicante, and Luz Gómez, professor of Arab and Islamic Studies at the Autonomous University of Madrid.
The conferences will take place on 23 and 30 September, 7, 14, 21 and 28 October, and 4, 11 and 18 November.
