Call for Papers: Quran and Islamic Tradition program unit of the SBL-IM meeting

The Quran and Islamic Tradition in Comparative Perspective unit of the ISBL
welcomes proposals for both individual papers and pre-arranged panels for
the International meeting in Vienna, Austria, July 6-10, 2014.

Suggested topics might include, but are not limited to: parallels to
biblical, Jewish, and Christian tradition in the Quran and Islamic
literature; the relationships between Jewish, Christian, and Muslim
exegetical traditions; the various discursive expressions of intercommunal
exchange and relations, including both dialogue and polemic; Islam in
European discourse; and Muslim cultural, religious, social, and political
life in the West.

The 2014 meeting in Vienna will feature two special panels co-sponsored by
European institutions. We welcome submissions pertaining to the themes of
these panels for potential inclusion in the programme:

Comparative Mystical Traditions in the Medieval Islamic World, co-sponsored
by the Pontifical Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies (PISAI), Rome,
and the Quran and Islamic Tradition in Comparative Perspective Unit
