Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics (SMME)
Chicago, United States
We invite paper proposals dealing with any aspect of Muslim ethics. Topics may be theoretical or applied, historical or contemporary, textual or philosophical. In light of current events, we especially encourage papers on the themes of Muslim representation and ethics from the margins. Sessions are 90 minutes long and consist of a single presenter or, more commonly, panels of up to three speakers, including a respondent. The goal of SSME sessions is to maximize the opportunity for discussion. The Annual Meeting of the SSME is held concurrently with the Annual Meetings of the Society of Christian Ethics and the Society of Jewish Ethics, and presents unparalleled opportunities for scholarship in comparative ethics and religion.
Proposals for single presenters and panels should include the following:
- contact information of presenter(s), including optional convener and/or respondent: name, institutional affiliation, phone numbers, and e-mail address
- tentative title(s)
- abstract(s) and select bibliography (500 word minimum, 600 maximum per presenter)
Proposals and queries should be sent by e-mail to:
Irene Oh, PhD
The deadline for submission of proposals is Wednesday, August 1, 2012.
Successful applicants will be notified via email by August 15, 2012.
The Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics (SSME) is a scholarly association dedicated to advancing intellectual inquiry in Muslim ethics, including the relation of Muslim ethics to other ethical traditions and to social, political, and economic problems. The Society supports academic work in both philosophical and applied ethics, historical as well as contemporary issues. The Society also aims to promote the teaching of Muslim ethics in colleges, universities, and theological schools, to improve understanding of Muslim ethics in the broader society through publications and other educational activities, and to provide a community of discourse and debate for those engaged professionally in the study of Muslim ethics.
All presenters in the annual meeting of the SSME must be members of the Society. For membership forms and other information, please consult the website:
