The Qur’an and Late Antiquity (IQSA)
Program Unit Type: Affiliate
Call For Papers: For the 2017 IQSA Annual Meeting in Boston, the Qur’an and Late Antiquity program unit invites proposals for one open panel. We seek papers that utilize various types of evidence, whether literary, documentary and epigraphic, or material/visual/archaeological, to illuminate the historical context in which the Qur’an was revealed and the early Islamic polity emerged. We are especially interested in papers that utilize comparative methodologies to contribute to a better understanding of the Qur’an’s place in its cultural, political, social, and religious environment.
