Islamic Mysticism Group

Statement of Purpose: 

Islamic mysticism is a broad rubric, one that allows us to engage in areas such as Sufism, Isma’ili and broader Shi’i esoteric thought, some aspects of Islamic philosophy, and allegorical interpretations of the Qur’an. The study of Islamic mysticism also allows our members to engage Islamic materials from many different parts of the world including, but not limited to Persianate regions, the Arab world, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and North America.

Call for Papers: 

The Islamic Mysticism Group solicits paper and panel proposals for the 2015 AAR Annual Meeting. While all proposals related to Islamic mysticism are welcome, special attention will be paid to the following topics formulated at the 2015 AAR Islamic Mysticism Group business meeting: Shrines and hostility towards shrines; ritual practices within Sufism; devotion to the family of the prophet. Pre-arranged session or panel proposals reflecting diversity in gender, ethnicity, theoretical method, and rank are highly encouraged.
