In 2020, The Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies (AVACGIS) at George Mason University organized a webinar series that explored the impact of Covid-19 on various dimensions of Muslim religious life in global perspective. Each webinar featured a leading scholar whose work explored the intersection of Islam and the global pandemic with a view to exploring Covid-19’s impact on Muslim thought, theology, law, observance, and religious authority.
Topics the series examined:
Each 1-hour session featured a live presentation plus Q&A/discussion on Zoom. Video and audio recordings of each speaker’s remarks are provided in each of the links below.
