Islam in Western Scholarship: The Rise of Islamic Studies as an Academic Discipline

Thursday, Nov. 1, 2-3:15 p.m.

A-5014

What do we know about Islam? And why do we know what we know about Islam? This seminar by Dr. Dietrich Jung (Professor & director of the Center for Middle East Studies, University of South Denmark) will give a tentative answer to these two questions by examining the evolution of Islamic Studies as an academic discipline. Jung will analyze ”Western” knowledge about Islam as emerging in the late nineteenth century based on a fusion of the teachings of Islamic reform, the encounter with colonial modernization, and intellectual debates about scholarly and literary interpretations of Muslim culture. All are welcome!

Presented by Department of Religious Studies
