Welcome to the website for the Graduate Student Symposium hosted by the McGill Institute of Islamic Studies Student Council. As an annual event, we hope to create an intellectually engaging environment where junior scholars come together to share research and ideas. The conference is intended as a space where interdisciplinary approaches from the fields of history, literature, political science, religion, anthropology, philosophy, law, and art history may be brought to bear on the study of Islam.

To submit for the 2023 meeting please complete the application form here. You should expect to hear back from the organizers on your application by the first week of March.

We welcome papers that contextualise and explore a range of themes including but not restricted to:

  • Shifts in literary, poetic, philosophical, artistic traditions, and the question of authority and canonicity

  • Evolving perceptions of adab, aḳhlāq, and sharī’a
