Qur'an Group

Statement of Purpose: 

This Group seeks to provide a forum for comprehensive scholarly discussion of the Qur’an, its commentaries, and its role in Muslim and world societies through a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives. We particularly welcome student-scholars and scholars from all areas of the academy to help us achieve our goals of promoting an understanding of the Qur’an.

Call for Papers: 

For 2015, the Qur'an Group welcomes proposals for individual papers and paper sessions on any theme.

We hope to arrange panels around topics such as the following: Religious Studies and Theology, including scholarly work situated in context of moral/ethical commitment and concern; tafsir and commentary in modern Qur'anic Studies; normativity and authority cast as questions of "canonicity"; Qur'anic interpretation as translation; and, performance pedagogy in and about global Qur'anic traditions.

Our Group is eager to partner with other official units of the AAR and SBL to share sponsorship of panels on a wide range of topics.
