By Dr. Matthew Wilkinson
1st March 2013. At the invitation of Mr. Tim Winter, the Shaykh Zayed Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the Faculty of Divinity of the University of Cambridge and Dean of the Cambridge Muslim College, Dr. Matthew Wilkinson delivered a seminar at the Faculty of Theology, University of Cambridge entitled ‘Islamic Critical Realism: A Philosophy to ‘under-labour for contemporary Islam’. This presentation outlined the Islamic Critical Realist position that Matthew is developing at the theoretical heart of the Curriculum for Cohesion project to serve the clearer and more rigorous conceptualisation of History and Religious Education for the 21st century classroom. The presentation was well-received and stimulated a lively discussion.
