About the Conference
For the past nine years, the annual Ibadi Conference has been hosted in global cities around the world. The University of Toronto’s Institute of Islamic Studies is pleased to host the 10th annual meeting of this auspicious group of scholars from around the world in a city that reflects back that global sensibility.
The theme of this year’s conference will locate the study of Ibadism using the spatial metaphor of center and edge. This theme draws upon critical literature in recent years that challenges scholars of Islam to recalibrate how they define their subject matter. From Richard Bulliet’s Islam: The View from the Edge to the more recent What is Islam? by Shahab Ahmed, scholars are increasingly questioning how we define our subject matter. The study of Ibadism offers an opportunity to interrogate the study of Islam, where Ibadism takes shape on the edge or periphery, both intellectually and geographically.
Papers presented in the conference will be published in the series “Studies on Ibadism and Oman” (Olms Publisher). For this reason, we kindly ask participants to submit their papers (approximately 20 pages) in English by 10th May 2019 or the latest during the conference. Please read the manuscript guidelines here.
