Thomas H. Lake Lecture - Mona Siddiqui - March 2, 2023

Dr. Mona Siddiqui, OBE is an internationally renowned academic, cultural commentator and broadcaster on BBC Radio, based at the University of Edinburgh. She is a scholar of Islamic law and ethics and Christian-Muslim relations and currently the Jane and Aatos Erkko Professor at the Helsinki Collegium.

Siddiqui will explore how art and human imagination compel us to seek different worlds and justices and how religious faith makes demands of us to give in multiple ways – giving may have its limits just like hospitality, but our moral life is relational and only by being generous with our idea of community do we cultivate a sense of civic life for everyone.
