Islamic Studies Issue 2018 : MID-YEAR 2018 ISLAMIC STUDIES ISSUE
Call For Papers
The Journal of Ethnophilosophical Questions and Global Ethics (JEQGE) is opening a call for papers for a themed issue on Islam, focusing on Islamic ethics and philosophy.
Suggestion for topics:
What is the difference between Sunnites and Shiite and their subgroups?
What does it mean to be a Muslim in a global multi-religious world?
Which values does Islam teach on piquant matters such as abortion or birth control?
What does Islam say about nature and environment? (Islam and Ecology)
Topics related to Early Islamic Philosophy, such as the Kalam or Falsafa.
Aristotelian Logic in Islamic philosophy
Metaphysics and Ontology
Predestination and Determinism vs. Free Will and Non-Determinism
Natural philosophy (including Islamic cosmology)
Different views of different scholars on a certain aspect in the Sunnah
Islamic education – How to teach and receive Islam in a proper way?
The role of Islamic science in a global view
Epistemology in Islam
Birth and Death, the soul theory in Islam
Topics that do not constitute an interest for the current issue:
Avoid showing that your denomination of Islam is your preference (especially concerning Sunnites and Shiites)
Avoid political issues in which you try to show that a certain Islamic country is ruling the better Islam (especially when it goes to the Saudi Arabia-Iran conflict)
No topics allowed that defame Islam or insults the religion or its believers. We want to build bridges and tear borders apart and Islamophobia is definitely no great help on that.
Avoid topics that might degrade minorities in any form. Keep in mind, all Muslims are brothers and sisters!
