Shari’a in Motion II co-organised by Iza Hussin, Julia Stephens, and Fahad Bishara.

Following the first conference at Yale in Spring 2016, Shari’a in Motion II aims to bring together a diverse group of scholars working on varied aspects of Islam, law and authority, for discussions on method, mobility and meaning in the study of shari’a. Taking the broadest possible approach to 'shari’a,' we seek to explore how seeing shari’a as always in motion - in time, in space, through text, language and the operations of meaning - allows new perspectives and methods to emerge for the study of Islam and Muslim societies. The workshop involves a number of associates of the Centre for History and Economics, and builds upon conversations facilitated by the CHE over the past three years, particularly on new approaches to the study of law and legal history, on sites of regional and global interaction, and to new approaches to archival and textual materials. Partial funding for the Cambridge conference in July has been secured from the Centre for Research in Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), Pembroke College, and POLIS.
