In this inaugural webinar, four scholars at the forefront of the Reading Muslims project explore the role of textuality in their studies of Islam across different disciplines. Dr. Anver Emon begins by introducing the origins, mandate, and scope of the Reading Muslim project as a Connaught Global Challenge recipient. Moderator Joud Alkorani proceeds to introduce the webinar’s panelists before asking them each to reflect upon what makes a text Islamic in their respective disciplines and research foci. What histories account for their use of these texts? How do they seek to critically interrogate their methods to become more attuned to questions of power? Their responses inspire conversation and Q&A from the audience in what follows.
