Staring last week, IQSA began its sponsorship of new weekly online (Zoom) seminars in conjunction with the University of Notre Dame to bring scholars and students of the Qur’an together at a time when many are in social isolation. These seminars are part of IQSA’s larger mission to advance “Cutting edge, intellectually rigorous, academic research on the Qurʾan” and to be “a bridge between different global communities of Qurʾanic scholarship.” Seminars are open to the public and all are welcome to join the meetings, although at this time we strongly encourage you to take a moment to join IQSA/renew your membership.
#IQSAZoom seminars, held at 11am EDT/New York time, will involve both a lecture and time for open discussion. To register for the seminars (free but required) visit https://theology.nd.edu/…/world-religions-world-c…/seminars/. Seminars will be recorded and posted to IQSA’s youtube channel (IQSA Online). We encourage all to continue the discussion on social media using the hashtag #IQSAZoom.
The inaugural #IQSAZoom seminar was offered last Thursday by Dr. Hythem Sidky on the topic “Codex Damascensis and the Evolution of the Syrian Reading Tradition.” If you didn’t catch it live, check out the seminar online!
This following week on Thursday April 16, Gabriel Said Reynolds will present “Perish the Human! On Sinfulness and Satan in the Qur’an.” Register for this session in advance to watch live!
