We are delighted to announce that the “Islamic Thought and its Implications for Current Social Inquiry: A Multiplex Approach” workshop will be held on the 11th and 12th September 2021, at the Süleymaniye Salis Madrasa, Istanbul. The workshop is organized in the context of a two-year eponymous project and aims to create an interdisciplinary environment to connect traditionally trained scholars, philosophers, social scientists and Islamic studies scholars in joint thinking about the possibility of translating Islamic thought to modern academia and social inquiry. The broader vision of the workshop is to show the mutual relevance of the work of traditional scholars and contemporary social scientists, the exploration of which will hopefully open the field to deeper conservations, more creative approaches and offer solutions pertaining to the issues in current social inquiry that have been otherwise unavailable within the dominant paradigms.
The event will be live-streamed on the university’s Youtube channel and will be accessible from that channel afterwards. Limited on-site attendance is possible with registration.
