Requirements for Participation

The Qur’an: Manuscripts and Textual Criticism (IQSA)
Program Unit Type: Affiliate
Call For Papers: We invite papers that deal with all eras and regions of the Qur’an’s manuscript tradition, as well as the variety of palaeographic, art historical, codicological, philological, historical issues, and textual criticism issues one encounters in this discipline. For example, a paper topic may focus on presenting a particular manuscript or collection of manuscripts, on exploring a feature of the Qur’anic arts of the book, of orthographic development, of a particular script style, the dating of manuscripts, issues of textual criticism, systems of qira’at represented in manuscripts, or papers dealing with issues of the qira'at as found in Islamic literature. We will also consider a feature of Qur’anic manuscript studies and the qira’at not listed here but that fits the general parameters listed in the description of the program unit. Proposals should include a title and an abstract of approximately 400 words.
