People in the project


The research team of the Arctic Muslim Project consists of four core researchers and a scientific advisory board. While the core researchers conduct the project, the scientific advisory board serves in terms of both academic supervision of the project and resource for the discussion of specific questions that might occur in the course of the project. In addition, we invite Danish and international scholars to workshops and seminars held in the context of the project. These workshops and seminars are documented on this homepage under “activities”.
