Turkish-Muslim Scholar Visits HFU to Speak About Islam

Holy Family University

Holy Family University will welcome Ferhan Tunagar, a Turkish Muslim who teaches at Rutgers University and is a Ph.D. candidate in Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, for a presentation on Islam on Friday, April 15, from 11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. in the ETC Auditorium.

The event is open to the campus community and public.

“Most Americans know little about this religion and its members who make up the fastest growing religion in the world,” said Dr. Joseph Stoutzenberger, Professor of Religious Studies. “Ferhan is a Muslim scholar that will address questions posed by Holy Family students. He has spoken to a number of church and community groups in the area about Islam and is associated with the Peace Islands Institute, a Turkish-Muslim organization dedicated to dialogue, education, and justice. We’re looking forward to inviting him to our campus to learn more about Islam.”
