Following an online roundtable on the early Islamic law treatise al-Muwaṭṭaʾ (by Mālik b. Anas in the 8th century), featured on the ISLAMICLAWblog, a select panel of scholars will bring the written ideas into conversation with one another in a symposium roundtable at Harvard Law School. The roundtable will feature Professor Kecia Ali (Boston University), Professor Ahmed El Shamsy (University of Chicago), and Dr. Mariam Sheibani (Harvard Law School) as panelists, and will present opportunities for the specialist community to engage in discussion on the text with both the panelists and the author-translators of the book, Professors Mohammad Fadel (University of Toronto Faculty of Law) and Connell Monette (American College Casablanca). Co-sponsored by the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program at Harvard.
