2020-2021 Event Roundup: We looked back at the year and found silver linings to the online year: it was full of unexpectedly rich gatherings online as we expanded our scholarly community to include those all across the globe; welcomed dozens of scholars, students, and editors to the Islamic Law Blog with features of their work and participation in the Roundtable events that outline the state of the field in Islamic law and legal history today with leading and emerging scholars;  and hosted a range of speaker series that explored the new scholarship of our fellows, form and function of Islamic Legal Genres historically, and recent developments in Islamic law and data science through the SHARIAsource Lab. We’ve brought it all together with a video montage of the year in pictures, and include here links to all of the featured scholars and students here from throughout the year. Stay tuned for news about research and data science projects to come, which lie at the intersection of Islamic law and the past as well as, well, the future.
