The Zentrum für Islamische Studien (Center for Islamic Studies) at Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main, Germany, is pleased to announce the congress Horizonte der islamischen Theologie (Horizons of Islamic Theology) to be held from Monday 1 to Friday 5 September 2014 at the University of Frankfurt. With six thematic sections and more than thirty panels, this international congress will focus on the key aspects of Islamic Theological Studies, i.e. textual scholarship, cultural and historical studies, intellectual history of Islam, religious education and practical theology as well as linguistics and literary studies with a focus on Arabic. Furthermore, it includes an interdisciplinary section spanning a number of different thematic areas.
The Zentrum für Islamische Studien will not only invite lecturers from Germany and abroad to present talks at the congress, but will also announce a call for papers for numerous panels inviting experts in these fields to contribute with their papers. In addition, an opportunity to present projects will be offered.
The congress addresses experts and people interested in the fields of Islamic theology and neighboring disciplines such as Islamic Studies, Christian theology, philosophy, and law. The covered range of topics as well as its interdisciplinary and dialogical approach make this congress a future-oriented project aimed at stimulating discussion and research in the field of Islamic Theology.
Further information on the congress as well as a call for papers will follow in due course.
We look forward to welcome you in Frankfurt in September!
