Conference: Law, Islam and Anthropology
November 9, 2018 - November 10, 2018
The conference brings together the disciplines of law, anthropology and Islamic studies, with all of their multiple entanglements. Conference papers address field observation, as well as methods and theories that provide insights into norms that are often given Islamic justification. The discussion will range from the traditional domain of family-related regulations regarding commercial transactions to the perception of ethical norms in daily life. Questions such as actor-driven social distinctions and cross-societal processes of interpreting and applying Islamic texts and tradition will be emphasized. The diverse perspectives represented at the conference will help identify the manifold perceptions of ‘law’, ‘anthropology’ and ‘Islam’ in order to enrich a multidisciplinary understandings of them.
