Event Description

Full Description:
Presenter: Dr Aaron Ghiloni

Can Islam be cosmopolitan? This seminar paper will introduce cosmopolitanism as a way of responding to religious diversity, including noting limitations of this perspective. A comparison will be made of the educational cosmopolitanism of David T. Hansen and the formulation of shariʿah in the work of Khaled Abou El Fadl (Reasoning with God: Reclaiming Shariʿah in the Modern Age, 2014). The curriculum of the medieval madrasah will be explored as an example of Islamic pluralism.
