Yousuf Saeed, member of the HRA project "Satellites of Networks" will give an illustrated talk on "Popular Islam and Urban Spaces: The Nizamuddin Shrine in New Delhi".

The talk focuses on how the popular visuality around the shrine has changed over time in response to the changes brought about by urbanization, movement of pilgrims, new technology, and competition from the more orthodox tableeghi and Wahhabi ideologues in the vicinity? This work-in-progress is part of HRA project "Satellites of Networks" a research and documentation project tracing the transcultural flows between Europe and Asia in Muslim popular iconography at the Cluster "Asia and Europe in a Global Context".
