Call for Papers

Date: April 15 – 16, 2019

Venue: University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK

Submission Deadline: November 30, 2018

Following BRAIS’s successful conferences in Edinburgh (2014), London (2015 and 2016), Chester (2017) and Exeter (2018), the organizers invite proposals for whole panels or individual papers for the Sixth Annual Conference of BRAIS. Islamic Studies is broadly understood to include all disciplinary approaches to the study of Islam and Muslim societies (majority and minority), modern and premodern.

The conference committee is very pleased to announce that plenary lectures at the conference will be delivered by Maribel Fierro (CSIC, Madrid) on ‘Rulers as Authors in the Medieval Islamic West’; Khaled Fahmy (University of Cambridge) on ‘Implementing Shari'a in Modern Egypt: A Medical Perspective’, and Alison Scott-Baumann (SOAS, London) and the 'Re/presenting Islam on Campus' team.

The British Association for Islamic Studies is a learned society and professional organization focused on enhancing research and teaching about Islam and Muslim cultures and societies in UK higher education.
