Call for Papers: “Trans-l Encounters: Religious Education and Islamic Popular Culture in Asia and the Middle East”

The research network “Re-Configurations: History, Remembrance and Transformation Processes in the Middle East and North Africa” invites submissions for the international conference: “Trans-l Encounters: Religious Education and Islamic Popular Culture in Asia and the Middle East” which will be held at Philipps-Universität Marburg, May 26-28, 2016.

The deadline for abstracts is October 1, 2015.

The conference will take a closer look at the transregional and translocal (“trans-l”) developments in Asia and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with a focus on interrelated phenomena of religious education and Islamic popular culture. The relationship between (religious) education and (popular) culture is immediate and helps to translate religious knowledge into an Islamicized lifestyle from faith-based fashion to music and online activism. The conference aims to examine these phenomena not as single case studies but to extend the view transnationally.

Submissions from various disciplines focusing on the circulation of knowledge through Islamic education, transregional Islamic educational institutions or networks, cultural practices as well as impacts and receptions of Islamic currents are invited.
