"The Conditions for the Islamic Struggle with Politics"
Wednesday, February 22, 2017~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Presenter: Andrew Ledford (SOC)
Discussant: Killian B. Clarke (POL)
A light lunch will be served.
The Princeton Islamic Studies Colloquium is a forum for discussion and peer review of graduate students' research projects and guest scholars' works-in-progress in the field of Islamic Studies. The Islamic Studies Colloquium formed in the spring of 2009 with the hope of encouraging an interdepartmental discussion and circulation of ideas among graduate students and professors with an interest in Islamic Studies.
The colloquium meets once or twice a month over lunch to discuss a pre-circulated paper, and all attendees are expected to have read and reflected on the paper beforehand. A discussant initiates the conversation with a summary of the work in progress' main argument, taking care to identify what the piece contributes to current scholarship as well as the potential for further development. Following the author's response, a moderator conducts an hour of mediated discussion. The forum is led and organized by graduate students.
PISC is supported by the generosity of Princeton University's Department of Religion, the Department and Program of Near Eastern Studies and the Center for the Study of Religion.
