Forms and Functions of Islamic Philosophy

Call for Papers

Date: March 31 and April 1, 2022

Venue: Bard College, NY, USA

Abstract Submission Deadline: November 1, 2021

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Lara Harb

“Forms and Functions of Islamic Philosophy” seeks to highlight how Islamic philosophy (falsafa/ḥikma) was practiced “in conversation”—between scholars, with various audiences, and with different disciplines, approaches, and rhetoric. Islamic philosophy was composed not only in traditional forms of treatises and commentaries, but also through narratives written in poetry and prose.

The conference is organized in conjunction with the “Islamic Philosophy in Conversation” working group. While all paper submissions will be given equal consideration, the conference aligns itself with the goals of the working group, and therefore encourages submissions from a diverse group of applicants, including emerging scholars of Islamic philosophy, as well as those who identify as female, non-binary, or as belonging to a historically-marginalized group.

The conference will include two traditional panels (15-20 minutes per presenter) as well as longer sessions workshopping the papers of two emerging scholars. Additionally, we will hold an open discussion of a primary text in translation, as well as a keynote lecture, both led by Dr. Lara Harb.
