Requirements for Participation

The Qur’an: Surah Studies (IQSA)
Program Unit Type: Affiliate
Call For Papers: The Surah Studies Unit of IQSA invites proposals for individual papers on any aspect of Surat al-Ahzab (Q 33). Proposers may, for example, wish to explore the surah's textual history, its reception, its structure, its surah-ness, its relationship to other surahs, its composition, its lexicon, its rhetorical features, its style, or indeed any other aspect of the surah inviting analysis. As the raison d'etre of the panel (and the Unit) is to bring different perspectives and scholarship on a given surah into dialogue with one another, the unit chairs will aim to select a methodologically diverse set of papers.
