History, culture, and the present-day situation of Muslims in Russia Did you know that since the seventh century, Muslims have resided in some regions of modern-day Russia? The largest Muslim population in Europe today is believed to be in Russia, where there are between 15 and 20 million Muslims inhabiting many well-known regions, such as Tatarstan, Dagestan, and Chechnya, which are known for their cultural heritage and are the home of prominent figures in our world today! ❄️ On Friday, December 9th, 2022 between 17:30–19:30 CET at Roeterseilandcampus (REC A2.07), Dr. Alfrid Bustanov will be presenting an academic lecture about the history, culture, and present-day situation of Muslims in Russia 📅 Dr. Alfrid Bustanov is an assistant professor of European Studies at the University of Amsterdam and principal investigator of an ERC project MIND: 'The Muslim Individual in Imperial and Soviet Russia' which can be found online at mind-archives.com. He has published countless pieces on the past and present state of Islam in the post-Soviet realm, and as an expert on Muslims and Islam in Russia, he will be guiding our adventure into the deep history of those exciting topics.
