CIWAS 2nd Annual Conference: Islam, the West, and Radicalism
About The Event
Date: February 20, 2019
Venue: Shilling Lecture Theatre, Royal Holloway University of London, Egham Hill, Egham, TW20 0EQ, UK
The Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies (Royal Holloway, University of London) and the Imam Sadr Foundation (Lebanon) invite proposals for the 2019 Annual Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies (CIWAS) Conference on ‘Islam, West, and Radicalism’.
Today, more than in any age and area, the role of Islam in societies across the world is being shaped by the political, economic, and cultural dynamics of West Asia. While many are celebrating the imminent demise of ISIS, acute observers express concern that the persistence of the West Asian socio-political context in which radical ideologies and movements have emerged will generate new radical movements in the region and beyond.
The CIWAS 2019 Annual Conference seeks to address the conference theme by considering a broad range of issues; and we are particularly interested in panel and paper proposals that offer original and under-researched approaches to them. The various issues that might be addresses, include, but are not limited to:
• Islam and the West (the Muslim diaspora, its coexistence with ‘others’ in the West)
• Islamic responses to radicalism
• Islam and ethics (human rights, ethics, medical ethics and Islamic jurisprudence, women’s rights)
• Spirituality in Islam (Islamic arts, rituals)
• Islamic authority in an age of Western dominance
Paper title and abstract (maximum 250-words) and contact details should be sent by email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm (UK time), Friday 14 December 2018. You will receive an email notification confirming receipt of your form.
