1.Conference: “Narrative and Ethics: The Morals of the Qurʾanic Stories and Beyond”, Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Doha, 27-29 January 2020
This conference aims at calling the attention to the narratives of the Quran and their rich potential as sources of moral orientation and ethical reasoning. The ethical study of the qurʾanic narratives is per se an interreligious and interdisciplinary enterprise. The ethical study of the religious narrative is not only useful for the moral theory, but for several growing fields, like psychotherapy, bioethics and environmental ethics, not to mention education and pastoral care.
