Professor Hafez's talk will touch upon the issue of how Austrian Muslim youth found their way through Hip Hop and Malcolm X to Islam and how they gave Islam a "Western" meaning, shaping a distinctive Western Muslim-identity.

Farid Hafez is currently working as a researcher at the Department for the Philosophy of Law, Law of Religion, and Culture at the University of Vienna, and lectures at the Department for Oriental Studies at the University of Vienna. His research focuses on Muslim organizations in Austria, the role of Islamophobia in Austrian party politics and on the Islamic Council in Austria within the Austrian political systems.
