Brill’s Encyclopaedia of the Quran Online (https://brill.com/view/db/eqo), edited by Johanna Pink (Universität Freiburg), is the world’s foremost digital historical-critical reference work on the Quran. We are seeking professional scholars with demonstrable expertise in a variety of disciplines for the expansion and updating of the Encyclopaedia.
Since the printed volumes of Brill’s Encyclopaedia of the Quran appeared in 2001-2006, the larger field of Quranic Studies has expanded considerably. To account for the explosion of new research related to the Quran, the Encyclopaedia of the Quran Online (EQO) will be adding new articles and updating older entries. If your field of study and expertise appears below, or you feel your research should be addressed by the EQO, please reach out to the relevent members of the editorial board.
For articles or updates on Quranic exegetes, exegetical works, the broader Quranic sciences as well as social and liturgical practices related to the Quran (for example, recitation) please contact Associate Editor Shuruq Naguib (Lancaster University, email@example.com).
For articles or updates on modern Quranic Studies scholars, the Quran’s early history, and individual verses/ayat or suras, please contact Associate Editor Anne-Sylvie Boisliveau (Université de Strasbourg, firstname.lastname@example.org).
For articles or updates on notable Quranic manuscripts, printed editions, Quranic and other significant epigraphy, or Quranic linguistics, please contact Associate Editor Süleyman Dost (Brandeis University, email@example.com).
For articles or updates on biblical, para-biblical, Jewish, Christian, or other pre-Islamic texts with noteworthy relationships to the Quran, please contact Associate Editor George Archer (Iowa State University, firstname.lastname@example.org).
For general inquiries about the project, or to propose articles or updates not suggested above, please contact General Editor, Johanna Pink (Universität Freiburg, email@example.com).
Authors are asked to send their CV, affiliation (if applicable), and the titles of the entry/entries they are proposing to update or create, along with a short statement clarifying why this is significant to the study of the Quran.
4. Call for papers for volume 22 (2022) of Methodos
“Argumentation and Arabic Philosophy of Language”
Guest Editors Shahid Rahman and Walter Young invite submission of papers to be published in “Argumentation and Arabic Philosophy of Language,” the forthcoming issue of Methodos, the online review of the research unit
« Savoirs, Textes, Langage » (UMR 8163 – CNRS, Université de Lille) (http://methodos.revues.org)
Argumentation and Arabic Philosophy of Language
The domain of Islamic thought and intellectual history boasts an important body of studies relevant to the Arabic philosophy of language, as well as a growing interest in Islamic argumentation theory and practice. There remains, however, a dearth of volumes which pool research from both areas and examine them together. Filling this gap is more critical than ever; in our time, significant work is being conducted in argumentation theory, but little of it draws from, or relates to, the rich intellectual traditions of Islam (exceedingly few argumentation specialists have heard, for example, of Islamic traditions of dialectical theory [jadal, munāẓara, ādāb al-baḥth], much less benefited from the millennium of discussions and solutions they contain).
With this in mind, the main objective of this volume of Methodos is to provide a venue for studies of hermeneutics, linguistic analysis, and deductive reasoning (formal and informal) in the theory / practice of argumentation relevant to the Arabic philosophy of language, including contributions on: (1) theories which are geared towards argument (e.g., dialectical justifications and objections, linguistic fallacies, strategies and protocols for engagement on particular issues, etc.); (2) the dynamic of argument in shaping concepts and theories (e.g., explaining how systematic argument fashioned certain scholars’ solutions); and (3) theories “in action” (e.g., argument analyses of the historical, scholarly dialectic on a certain problem).
Understanding that interdisciplinarity is a quintessential feature of premodern Islamic thought, we are also particularly eager to attract contributions on Argumentation and Arabic Philosophy of Language from a broad spectrum of premodern Islamic disciplines (philosophy, theology, law and legal theory, logic, dialectic, rhetoric, philology, grammar, linguistics, exegesis, etc.) so as to provide testimony for the dynamic “unity in diversity” of Islamic thought.
