Innovative Approaches in Islamic Sciences and Education

About The Event

Date: September 20-22, 2018

Venue: University of Osnabrück, Osnabrück, Germany

Organized by: The Institute of Islamic Theology at the University of Osnabrück

The conference has two main goals:

First, to allow an interdisciplinary discussion about new ways and approaches to re-think and re-interpret the rich legacy and history of traditional Islamic scholarship in the contemporary world. In this regard, we are particularly interested in discussing whether, and to what extent, an innovation within the diverse intellectual legacy of traditional Islamic scholarship is possible today.

And second, to contribute to the ongoing academic reflection about the improvement of the quality of Islamic education and the development of better curricula for religious research and teaching institutions.

Our main focus here is, how to improve both the theoretical and practical parts of the teaching of Islamic subjects, in a way that allows us to meet the needs of our changing societies. Thus, we would like to open the floor also to religious education scholars to discuss the new educational methods and principles in their respective fields. The languages of the conference are English and German.

We encourage particularly papers that focus on the following themes:

· Islamic legal thought
· Islamic theology
· Islamic philosophy
· Islamic history
· Koran exegesis
· Hadith studies
· Religious education Psychology
· Didactics 2 Pedagogy
