October 8-10, 2010

This workshop assembled a diverse group of American Muslim scholars broadly concerned with gender-just interpretations of the Qur’an and innovative approaches to the Prophetic tradition. Discussions were held to explore transcending existing discourses and projects by combining intellectual energies and diverse methodologies to build community and to address methodological, religious and political concerns.
