Event description

Description

Professor Hallaq is confirmed [flights and hotels all booked] and scheduled to speak on the following:

1) What is "traditional Islam" and how does it fit with the "modern world", with both defined clearly?

2) If "traditional Islam" is defined by "shariah", and if it is contended that the latter has been "destroyed"
by the modern age, then to what extent can either "traditional Islam" or the "shariah" be relevant?

3) If Islam must be defined through a reading of the Quran, how can the holy book be "re-cited" to
modernity in a way that is meaningful to Muslims and non-Muslims, and why is such a "re-citing"
even important to both groups?
