Islamabad conference on Muslim Everyday Ethics
An International Workshop entitled ”Being Muslim in the World: Everyday Ethics and Cultures of Adab” will be held in Islamabad, Pakistan, 23–24 May 2012. The conference is jointly organised by the Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict, Arizona State University, USA, and the Iqbal International Institute for Research and Dialogue & Islamic Research Institute, International Islamic University, Islamabad, Pakistan. The workshop will bring together a select number of scholars focusing on the two spheres of ethics: adab (formally enacted ethics) and everyday ethics. The concern of the workshop is to identify concepts, issues, and directions of research in Muslim lived ethics.
Select papers presented at the conference will be submitted to appropriate journals such as Journal of Islamic Studies, Journal of Islamic Philosophy, Muslim World, Journal of Asian Studies; Journal of Religious Ethics, and Islamic Studies (Journal of the Islamic Research Institute). The ambition is also to form a network of engaged scholars to organize future conferences and scholarly exchanges.
