Call for panels and papers
Following BRAIS’s successful conferences in Edinburgh (April 2014), London (April 2015 and April 2016) and Chester (April 2017), the organisers invite proposals for whole panels or individual papers for the Fifth Annual Conference of BRAIS. Islamic Studies is broadly understood to include both Muslim-majority and Muslim-minority contexts as well as historical, textual, and contemporary anthropological and sociological approaches.
Pre-arranged panels are particularly welcome on themes within the subject area, such as:
- Qur’anic studies
- Sociology of Islam
- Muslims in Britain/Europe/North America and other minority contexts
- History, Medieval and Modern
- History of Science
- Philosophy and Theology
- Muslims in Africa and Asia
- Intellectual History
- Islamic Art and Architecture
- Diversity within Islam
- Economics and Finance
- Gender Studies
- Islam in the Media
- Interreligious Relations
Individual proposals will also be considered, and, if accepted, will then be grouped with similar submissions by the conference organisers.
