After I had been living and working for several years in the Middle East helping to establish a new international faculty at Kuwait University, I have moved in the meantime to another extreme, the Arctic (where I do pretty much the same). I am not religious but, after 9/11 and in the middle of sort of a clash of civilizations, very interested in religion and, in particular, the culture of Muslim societies. In fact, in war times (once poorly disguised as war against terrorism, now actually an endless Global War on Terror) it might be vital to acquire the necessary knowledge about what separates us. You may want to see the blog’s manifesto here.
