Call For Papers: The Quran and Islamic Tradition in Comparative Perspective unit of the ISBL welcomes proposals for both individual papers and pre-arranged panels at the international meeting in Buenos Aires, July 20-24, 2015. Suggested topics might include, but are not limited to, the Quran and Islamic tradition in the wider context of the history of the Western monotheisms; Islam’s profound historical relationships with Judaism, Christianity, and the biblical heritage; and comparative inquiry and intercommunal dialogue more generally. For a joint session with the Bible and Syriac Studies in Context unit, we especially welcome papers on the relationship between the Islamic and Syriac worlds. Topics might include, but are not limited to, Syriac and the language of the Qur'an, and the transmission of literary and religious narratives around the Near East in late antiquity and early Islamic centuries. Proposals for panels or individual papers can be submitted online at http://www.sbl-site.org/meetings/Internationalmeeting.aspx. The deadline for submission of proposals is February 12, 2015. Please note that membership in the Society of Biblical Literature is required in order to submit a paper proposal.
