TehranISM is a series of conversations addressing Islamic studies across the world. The aim of conversations is to link “Western” and “non-Western” study of Islam. In particular, it aims at engaging more Iranian scholars and students with the state of the art in global Islamic studies.

Each conversation will focus on one recently published work about Islam. The structure of each conversation consists of: 5 minutes “introduction” by the host; 15 minutes “comments” by the discussant; and 20-30 minutes “response” by the author and the Q&A period.
