7. CfP : Canon and Censorship in the Islamic Intellectual and Theological History
Conference and volume
The conference welcomes papers that focuses on certain texts, ideas or individuals that were perceived by Muslim communities as canon, authorities, or constitutional ideas and texts. In order to reach broad conclusions from the various papers, we encourage case studies that cover a wide range of disciplines (Sufism, Islamic law, Islamic theology, Islamic Philosophy, hadith-studies etc.) as well as focus on texts, ideas and individuals from different regions and time periods ranging from early Islamic history to modern times. It is particularly important to highlight the plurality of Islamic intellectual and theological thought by focusing on different schools of thoughts (e.g. Sunni, Shii, Zaydi schools of thoughts and others). The conference wants to offer valuable insights into a wide variety of studies and aims for an increased exchange with other disciplines. Therefore, in addition to studies from the Islamic Intellectual and Theological History, papers from humanities and social sciences as well as historical science are welcomed. Papers from the field of Islamic manuscript studies in various regions and historical periods can also be submitted.
The following research questions shall guide the contributions: What do the concepts of ‘canon’ and ‘censorship’ mean in the context of the case study? How did the canon become authoritative? How were contradicting ideas suppressed or censored? What stages did a text or an idea pass through with regard to the reception history to become a canonical text or a constitutional idea? What scholarly community stood behind this development who has fostered and supported a certain text or idea? What other historical, social or political factors favored the dominance of certain texts, ideas or individuals over others?
The conference will be organized and the proceedings edited by Mohammad Gharaibeh (Berlin Institute for Islamic Theology, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Bacem Dziri (Institute for the Study of Islamic Culture and Religion at the Goethe University of Frankfurt) and Amir Dziri (Swiss Center for Islam and Society, University of Fribourg) in cooperation with the Academy for Islam in Research and Society (AIWG). The conference will take place in Berlin from October 8th–10th 2021. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered. If international travelling will not be possible in Oct 2021, the conference will take place virtually. The papers will be peer reviewed and published in a collective volume.
– Please submit a short academic cv and a proposal by January 15th, 2021, including the title of your contribution and an abstract of about 400 words. Please send this via mail to the address below.
– Once the paper has been accepted, you will be asked to participate in one or two preceding workshops in Berlin in which we will discuss the theoretical and methodological framework as well as your papers more detailed. If travelling will not be possible at that time, we will offer an online workshop.
– The first draft of the full article after the conference will be due January 31st 2022 (7.000–15.000 words)

8. Call for Papers:
Issue 31, Winter/Spring 2021 on “Media & Health”
Arab Media & Society, the biannual journal of the Kamal Adham Center for Television and Digital Journalism in the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the American University in Cairo, is seeking submissions for our next issue on “Media & Health”.
A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, and following the publication of our Summer/Fall 2019 special issue on “Media & Science”, this next edition will examine broader issues relating to communication, and human health and medicine. For years, scientists sounded the alarm that the world was long overdue for the outbreak of a global pandemic, but in most cases the media and policy makers were ill-prepared for what has become the most catastrophic health crisis in a century. The pandemic has illuminated both successes and failures of our communication and media systems; expediting changes in how we use, receive, and understand information communication technology (ICT). The media has played a pivotal role in keeping the public protected and informed, but it has also been a vector for panic and misinformation. In the Arab world, health communication in general has its own sets of variables dictated by social, cultural, and religious factors, not to mention socioeconomic status and the political mechanisms governing the nations of the region. With this in mind, we are compiling a special issue dedicated entirely to “Media & Health” in the Arab region. More information is available here.
“This website is designed for the dissemination of History of Istanbul from Antiquity to XXIst century, a work prepared by the cooperation of Türkiye Diyanet Foundation Center for Islamic Studies (İSAM) and İstanbul Metropolitan Municipality Kültür ve Sanat Ürünleri A.Ş.
The Project for the preparation of the Turkish version of the work was launched in late 2012, and completed and published in 2015. The book was prepared thematically and composed of around 355 articles written by nearly 260 scientists about different fields such as topography, architecture, religious and social life, management, economics. In this book which consists of 10 volumes, nearly 5300 pages, around 4 thousand visual materials such as maps, miniatures, engravings, paintings, and archive documents were used. The English translation of the work was completed in 2019 and not published yet. It is accessible online…”
2. New Book: Quoting the Quran: A Reference Handbook for Authors and Scholars
Saad D. Abulhab
Volume 1: Full Text of the Quran in an Early Quranic Kufic Script with and without Diacritic Vowel Marks
Volume 2: Full Text of the Quran in Modern Arabic with a Latin Transliteration According to the ALA-LC Romanization Standards
This handbook is a reference tool intended to help authors, scholars, and anyone else provide accurate and standardized quotations from the Quran, both from linguistic and historical perspectives. The first volume of the handbook includes the full text of the Quran using a font mimicking its earliest script, Mashq or Early Kufic, and it is provided in two formats, with and without diacritic vowel marks. The font used to generate the full texts in the first volume, Arabetics Mashq, was designed and implemented by the author after years of in-depth examination of the historical Quranic manuscripts, notably the copy of Muṣḥaf ʿUthmān kept today in the Topkapi Museum in Turkey. The second volume of the handbook also includes two full texts of the Quran. The full text of the first part is a complete, word-by-word Latin transliteration of the modern Arabic script full text of the Quran, using the ALA-LC Romanization Standards. The second part includes a modern Arabic script full text of the Quran, including the full set of modern Arabic diacritic vowel marks. It is generated using Arabetics Latte, a multilingual font designed and implemented by the author to emphasize simple, clear shapes, and facilitate easy reading. Letters change shapes only minimally and are designed to have a large x-height. The diacritic vowel marks are placed intentionally away from the letters for clarity. Reading the Quran in this font can be very helpful to both native and non-native Arabic readers. The full text of the Quran contained in this book is based on the Tanzil Quran text, a carefully produced, highly verified and continuously monitored text by a group of specialists at Tanzil project. Possibly, this handbook includes the first Latin transliterated copy ever of the Quran using the ALA-LC Romanization Standards. Both volumes include indexes for Quran chapters and verses and the necessary tables needed to help the readers understand the early Quranic Kufic script and the ALA-LC Romanization Standards.

6. Applications are invited for an Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP-funded Collaborative Doctoral Award at the University of Cambridge, in partnership with the Everyday Muslim Heritage and Archive Initiative.
Supervisory team: Professor Esra Özyürek (Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge) and Sadiya Ahmed (Everyday Muslim Heritage and Archive Initiative)
The CDA project asks how do different generations of Muslims understand what it means to be a Muslim in the U.K.? Can we talk about a British Muslim experience? If so, at which generation does it start? What kinds of everyday religious expressions bind British Muslims with each other and make them different from non-British Muslims? What would the across the generations experiences of British Muslims tell us about the relationship between migration and localization when it comes to diverse religious communities coming together and forming a distinct minority?
The CDA student will conduct research under the supervision of Esra Özyürek, Sultan Qaboos Professor of Abrahamic Religions and Shared Values, and Sadiya Ahmed, Director and Founder of the Everyday Muslim Heritage and Archive Initiative. The student will use existing audio-visual archival material from the Everyday Muslim Project, as well as collecting new sources from three generations of Muslims from different families in the U.K. This is a unique opportunity to understand transformation in the lived experience of Islam through generations of diverse Muslim communities in the U.K. The dissertation will be an anthropological contribution to our understanding of the rich but understudied lived experience of Islam in the U.K. from a generational perspective. It will allow us to gain a diachronic perspective on the localization of religious expression in creating cultural, ethnic, and citizenship ties in contemporary U.K.
The CDA is also an opportunity to develop professional skills in collecting oral history narratives and other audio-visual and material documents for archives. Upon completion of their degree the student will both have academic qualifications and practical training in collecting and archiving oral history narratives, and other visual and material evidence that highlight an aspect of Muslim lives in the UK of their choice. Hence, the student will join the much needed but scarce ranks of qualified people who can build bridges between academia and the museum and heritage world.
The award holder will be based at the Faculty of Divinity in Cambridge, with regular periods of time spent at the Everyday Muslim Heritage and Archive Initiative offices in London. Applicants from the fields of religious studies, divinity, anthropology, sociology, history, and related disciplines are encouraged to apply.
Potential applicants are encouraged to contact Esra Özyürek: email@example.com with questions and for any guidance before submitting their application. For further details on how to apply for this CDA through the University of Cambridge, please see the advert on the Cambridge jobs site.
7. Symposium on ‘Iran and Global Decolonization’
organized by the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California Los Angeles, to be held online on THURSDAY, MAY 20 and FRIDAY, MAY 21, 2021.
We invite submissions for a symposium on Iran and Global Decolonization, organized by the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California Los Angeles, to be held online on THURSDAY, MAY 20 and FRIDAY, MAY 21, 2021. Iranian activists, dissidents, entrepreneurs, non-state actors, diplomats, prostitutes, homeless and migrant populations engaged with and experienced colonialism and decolonization in different ways, both inside Iran and beyond its borders. The symposium invites scholars whose work investigates Iran’s experiences with colonialism and decolonization from a multiplicity of perspectives – including, but not confined to, race and ethnicity; foreign relations; intellectual history; social and economic networks; as well as cultural studies – to answer questions such as: What role did decolonization play in Iran’s interactions with the Global South? How did Iran respond to decolonization movements? What networks did Iranian women and minorities create to confront their experiences of dispossession reinforced by colonialism or decolonization? How did Islam and secular ideologies help proponents of decolonization movements to articulate their struggles?
In the decades after the Second World War, dozens of countries around the world achieved independence from colonial rule, including Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Kuwait (among others) in Asia and Senegal, Kenya, Gambia, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Sudan and Angola (among others) in Africa. Similar processes had taken place earlier in the Americas. This period of rapid decolonization after WWII fundamentally changed the dynamics of global politics. Between 1946 and 1970, membership of the United Nations increased from 35 to 127 nations, and the organization became a forum in which these newly independent states could argue for the continuation of decolonization and the recognition of national rights.
From the 1950s onwards, and with increased urgency in the 1970s, Iran sought to establish close political relationships with the newly independent countries in the Global South. Iran presented itself as a powerful, wealthy, and like-minded ally – an alternative to the colonial powers of Europe. Though it was never formally colonized, Iran had, from the early nineteenth century, suffered repeated violations of its sovereignty at the hands of the Russians and British. This shared experience of imperialism allowed Iran to present itself as inherently sympathetic to the formerly colonized states of Africa, Asia and the Americas despite its imperial self-image and impulses.
In the same period, anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist movements around the world had a profound impact on intellectual thought inside Iran. The rising influence of the United States in the Middle East gave voice to new anti-imperialist currents in Iran that prompted intellectuals simultaneously to call for civil liberties, social justice and democracy.
We hope this symposium will show the necessity of studying Iran’s experiences with colonialism and decolonization in a global framework in an effort to broaden conversations around these subjects and to expose the complex networks that Iran created and shared with (de)colonized communities.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 15 January 2021.
