Saba Mahmood – Religious Liberty, the Minority Problem and Geopolitics Event Date: 12 – 13 November Goodenough College Mecklenburgh Square London WC1N 2AB Experiments in political subjectivity The possibility of conceiving practices of citizenship after orientalism points to experiments that uncover, rearticulate and provoke subjugated forms of politics. Through addressing the intersections between orientalism, colonialism and citizenship (panel 1), exploring possibilities of democratic politics for decolonizing citizenship (panel 2) and troubling universal claims to rights (panel 3), we ask what images of citizenship are emerging in relation to the process of deorientalization?

What is Political Islam Over the last few decades, Islam has become a central point of reference for a wide range of political activities, arguments and opposition movements. The term “political Islam” has been adopted by many scholars in order to identify this seemingly unprecedented irruption of Islamic religion into the secular domain of politics and thus to distinguish these practices from the forms of personal piety, belief and ritual conventionally subsumed in Western scholarship under the unmarked category “Islam.” In the brief comments that follow, I suggest why we might need to rethink this basic framework. The claim that contemporary Muslim activities are putting Islam to use for political purposes seems, at least in some instances, to be warranted. Political parties such as Hizb al-‘Amal in Egypt or the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) in Algeria that base their appeal on their Islamic credentials appear to exemplify this instrumental relation to religion.

James Treat James Treat My research focuses on American Indian environmental concerns, especially in the context of anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change. One of my current ventures is Field Guide to Turtle Island – A Virtual Primer on Traditional Ecological Knowledge in Native North America. An earlier project involved a monthly column on tribal traditions published in the Muscogee Nation News and archived at Mvskoke Country.

I’m here to confess some things that not many converts to Islam would be willing to discuss openly. Ready? I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Sure, I knew the basics and the basics made sense to me, but that’s about it. Not long after taking my shahada, or profession of faith, I walked confidently to the edge of the convert diving platform with my new Muslim friends cheering me on, slid my toes to the edge, and jumped headfirst into an ocean of belief before I ever learned to swim.

Dr. John Andrew Morrow | Official Website Calling all Muslims! Stand up for True Islam! In response to the clash of barbarisms that is presently laying the world in ruins, interested Muslims have elected to take the rare opportunity presented by the publication of The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World to launch “The Covenants Initiative,” which asks Muslims to append their names to the following declaration: We the undersigned hold ourselves bound by the spirit and the letter of the covenants of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) with the Christians of the world, in the understanding that these covenants, if accepted as genuine, have the force of law in the shari’ah today and that nothing in the shari’ah, as traditionally and correctly interpreted, has ever contradicted them.

Reflections on the State of Islamic Studies I have been asked to share my impressions about the state of Islamic studies in the North American academy. Given that the pioneers of this field include many of my mentors, and many of my own peers have struggled for years to help advance the field to its current state, my observations will not be dispassionate. And since I have been fortunate to have a front-row seat along the development of the field over the last twenty years, I hope I’ll be able to do justice to the current state of the field. I became a graduate student in the field of Islamic studies in the early 1990s. In those days, almost all of us were “converts”: no one went to undergraduate studies planning to become a professor of Islamic studies. Reflections on the State of Islamic Studies

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie: Why Interfaith Dialogue Doesn't Work -- And What We Can Do About It I have been participating in interfaith dialogue as a rabbi and Jewish leader for more than 30 years, and most of the time it just doesn't work. Most of the time -- and it is painful for me to admit this -- it is terribly boring. Most of the time there is a tendency to manufacture consensus, whether it exists or not. Most of the time we go to great lengths to avoid conflict. Most of the time we cover the same ground that we covered last month or the month before. Rabbi Eric H.

Love, Whiteness, and Girls in Turbans | Love, InshAllah Lots of things have been going down at and within the Muslim blogosphere. The recent article on Muslim men returning “back home” to find wives generated diverse cyber chatter, with various responses supporting or criticizing different positions. On the heels of that debate, the Miptserz-coining, Somewhere in America, video featuring women in hijabs and cool turbans skateboarding to Jay-Z generated widespread media controversy. Again, Muslims drew well-argued lines on the good, the bad, and the ugly regarding the video’s use of hijab and contemporary representations of Muslim female identity. In the middle of these developments, I had two appearances on NPR’s Tell Me More discussing issues around dating, race, and identity.

Asma Lamrabet : What does the Qur’an say about the interfaith marriage? What does the Qur’an say about the interfaith marriage? Asma Lamrabet It goes without saying that the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim man is one of the main taboo issues in debates on Islam. According to a broad consensus religiously sterile, a Muslim woman is formally forbidden to marry a non-Muslim man regardless of his religion, while a Muslim man is allowed to get married to a non Muslim woman, mainly a Christian or a Jew, considered by the Islamic schools as “People of the Book”[1].
