Muwaṭṭaʾ Book Launch & Workshop

Dec 9 2019 | Morgan Courtroom, Austin Hall

Following an online symposium in the new Journal in Islamic Law on the ideas that followed from the early Islamic law treatise, Al-Muwaṭṭaʾ (by Mālik b. Anas in the 8th century), a select panel of scholars will bring the written ideas into conversation with one another in a workshop at Harvard Law School. The workshop will present opportunities for a broader community to engage in a conversation and debate with both the commentators and the author-translators of the book Professors Mohammad Fadel and Connell Monette. This workshop will accompany a book launch and reception. It comes on the occasion of the publication of the critical edition of the book by PIL and distributed through Harvard University Press, based on a Moroccan first-of-its-kind critical edition published in 2013.
