    About the Audio Seminar

    Something big is happening. For over a thousand years, Islamic scholars have generally maintained significant control over the production, interpretation, and dissemination of Islamic texts and content to Muslim masses throughout the world.

    Now, for the first time ever in human history, that is beginning to radically change. New media—Facebook, WordPress, Twitter, YouTube, and many more online tools—have made publishing and the sharing of content easy and democratized.

    As a result, millions of Muslim Internet users today are getting exposed to a huge diversity of ideas and theological opinions on Islam, unlike ever before. Moreover, they have newfound freedoms to speak their minds and spread their ideas hardly with any restrictions at all.

    Some of these ideas are troublesome and seek to lure young Muslims into extremist groups. Many further reinforce current mainstream Islamic thought. Others are deemed too liberal, heretical, and illegitimate by the orthodoxies, but are growing in influence. Some ideas attack Islam.

    Regardless of where you stand, there seems to be more questions than answers, and a few important questions stand out in particular.

    • In what ways is the Internet affecting Muslim societies and culture?

    • How are young internet-savvy Muslims changing the image of Islam in the West?

    • What is the future of internet freedom and censorship in Muslim-majority countries?

    • And last but not least, what is the future of Islam in the age of new media?

    Register now and join 60 speakers comprised of Islamic scholars, new media experts, academics, journalists and activists for an insightful audio seminar and ongoing conversation focused on exploring answers to these pressing questions.
