9th Islamic Law and Society Conference

ILS Conference 2018

Call for Papers

Date: June 6–9, 2018

Venue: Finland

Abstract Submission Deadline: July 31, 2017

The IX Islamic Legal Studies Conference, convened by the International Society of Islamic Legal Studies (ISILS) under the auspices of the Universities of Helsinki and Tampere

ISILS invites paper proposals for its ninth Islamic Law and Society conference, to be held in Finland, June 6–9, 2018. Unlike previous conferences, the conference will be open topic—presentations on all aspects of Islamic law, from earliest to most recent times, are welcome.

The conference will be divided into two parts:

- In the first, which will take place in Helsinki, a keynote address and an invited panel of five speakers will present on “Islamic Law and the Relationship between Ruler and Ruled.” The keynote will be given by Frank Vogel (Cambridge, MA), who will explore Sharia doctrine regarding legal status of the governed. It will be followed by a panel made up of Lena Salaymeh (Tel Aviv), Christian Müller (Paris), Evgenia Kermeli (Ankara), Rob Gleave (Exeter), and Mulki al-Sharmani (Helsinki), who will each present case studies from different periods evidencing the shaping and reconstituting of subjecthood in legal practice.

- The second part, which will take place in Tampere over two-and-a-half days, will consist of 20-minute presentations; preference is given to discussions based on primary text analysis or fieldwork.

The conference language is English. Abstracts of up to 400 words, clearly presenting and contextualizing the argument, methodology, sources used, and historiographical importance, are due by July 31, 2017; please send to [email protected]. The abstracts, from which twenty will be chosen, will be read by an ISILS committee. Acceptance letters will be sent out by September 1, 2017. Speakers must be ISILS members.

Incorporated in 2004, ISILS is an international, non-profit, and non-political organization that aims to encourage scholarship on and to foster communication about Islamic law and related subjects. ISILS’s primary focus is the organization and convening of the Islamic Legal Studies (ILS) conferences, which are held triennially. ISILS is open to all who are interested in the academic study of Islamic law.
