Reformers and Intellectual Reformulation in Contemporary Islam
A Two-Day Symposium, 29-30 January 2015

 Held at SOAS And QMUL London

 A collaboration between:
Study of Religions, SOAS, London
School of History, Queen Mary University
Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter

This two-day symposium will investigate the patterns of change and reformulation in contemporary Islamic thought. By bringing together researchers in the intellectual trends for reform in Islamic thought, the symposium aims to provide an opportunity to identify and compare the reform programmes of Muslim thinkers.

 We invite proposals for papers on the symposium theme, and particularly encourage papers focussing on the thought of individual reform thinkers over the past century. Papers can be on reform in any area of Islamic thought, including theology, exegesis, law, mysticism, philosophy, political thought. Proposals from early career researchers are particularly encouraged. Reform is understood here broadly. It includes movements advocating a return to the past or a revival of past models, or advocating adaptability or openness to development. Reformers share, however, a dissatisfaction with the present state of affairs, and a keen sense of the need for change.

 Paper proposals should be in the form of a 200 word abstract, sent to Mr Omar Anchassi ( by Monday 17th November 2014.

Proposers of accepted papers will be notified by 24th November. Mr Anchassi will also be able to answer initial queries about the symposium. Papers from early career researchers are particularly encouraged.
