Past, Present, and Futures Workshop

Dear University of Toronto Islamic Studies community,

It is our pleasure to announce this fall's slate of presenters for the Islamic Studies Past, Present, and Futures Workshop. The Workshop gathers graduate students, postdocs, and faculty in Islamic Studies within the U of T community for two major goals:
  1. To provide a space for researchers to gain constructive feedback on their written works in progress.
  2. To build academic community across disciplines of Islamic studies (e.g., history, anthropology, sociology) and levels (graduate students, postdocs, and faculty) at the University of Toronto and forge ongoing scholarly and professional ties.
The Workshop revolves around a draft manuscript (e.g., an article or book/dissertation chapter) distributed to participants to read in advance of the session. The sessions are informal but focused group discussions of the paper in the spirit of helping the author and constructive academic discussion more broadly.
