On the History of Religions and the Study of Islam

Lecture | November 27 | 5-7 p.m. | Stephens Hall, Geballe Room 220


Travis Zadeh, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, Yale University

Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion


Islam plays a powerful role in American public discourse. Across this often contentious landscape, numerous voices can be heard defining and contesting the nature of Islam. This lecture addresses the place and history of Islam in the modern academic study of religion in light of discursive structures that are designed to contain and delimit the meaning of Islam.
