‘Legacies of Islamic Ecumenicism:
Taqrib, Shi’a-Sunni Relations, and Globalized Politics in the Middle East’
Weatherhead Center, 2021
M. Sagha, ed.
The current online study day on Shi’ism in Europe is a unique opportunity for young and senior scholars to deliberate on each other’s concerns and research outcomes in a particular collaborative atmosphere. We are honored to contribute to this first online study day on Shi’ism in collaboration with some scholars motivated by the shared objective of mapping the research agenda on Shi’a studies in some European and Middle Eastern countries. These contributions will certainly help us understand the multiple ways in which Shi’ism evolve in the European and Middle Eastern contexts. We hope that this event will facilitate scientific exchange on the contemporary Shi’ism and introduce new research ideas and collaboration opportunities between scholars of this field of study.
The conference language is English. Each speaker will present his/her paper in 20-minutes, followed by 10 minutes Q&A.
