The St Andrews Encyclopaedia of Theology (University of St Andrews, UK) in collaboration with the al-Ghazali Chair of Epistemology and Civilisational Studies and Renewal at the International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilisation (ISTAC-IIUM, Malaysia) cordially invite you to attend our forthcoming international conference, Islamic Theology: Uniting Diverse Voices, now set to take place from the 18 to 19 January 2024 at ISTAC-IIUM, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 


In an increasingly uncertain and divided world, the Conference will explore Islamic theology in its widest and most inclusive sense, for a contemporary Muslim audience. By positioning Islamic thought within the context of Divine Unity (tawhid), the Conference will foster a balanced and moderate perspective capable of avoiding literalist interpretations, while also integrating kalam with the fields of tafsir (Qur’anic interpretation), falsafa (philosophy), tasawwuf (mysticism), and fiqh (jurisprudence).  


The Conference is free and will give all who attend in person, whether scholars, PhD students, or practitioners, a unique opportunity to discuss their research with a global audience, while also exploring Southeast Asia’s rich and diverse Islamic tradition. It will feature keynote speeches by leading scholars, including Professor Timothy Winter (online), Professor Osman Bakar, Associate Professor Khairudin Aljunied, and Professor Andrew Peacock.
