Contemporary Islamic Thought conference
April 27, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm$40
This conference aims to evaluate the history, influence, and legacy of Islamic reform movements in the last two-hundred years. Experts including academics, policy analysts, and legal scholars will examine the legacy and relevance of reformist discourses, theological/philosophical imperatives of reform, the relationship between reform and political Islamism, the place of science and religion debates, and new pathways of reform. The panelists will offer a set of Islamic perspectives that reflect classical understandings as well as contemporary thought, connected with real-world case studies and examples.
Attend the conference to learn more about how contemporary Muslim thinkers are conceptualizing Muslim identity and ethics in today’s world, drawing from and critically engaging classical and modern frameworks and notions of Islamic reform. The conference provides a unique opportunity to engage with a diverse group of exceptional scholars.
