Australia National University‘s Centre for Arab & Islamic Studies invites submissions for its symposium “After the Rule: Interpretation in Comparative and Cross-Cultural Perspective,” to be held September 21, 2018 in Canberra, Australia. From the CFP:
The ANU Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies, in collaboration with the Centre for Law, Arts and the Humanities, are calling for abstracts of not more than 300 words exploring comparative, historical, and cultural dimensions of the relationship between norms, reasoning, interpretation, and decision. We seek scholars from across the disciplines in an effort to identify cross-cutting problems and themes, exploring alternative traditions of legal hermeneutics, diverse in their scope and suggestive in their implications. We are looking to learn about traditions that open our eyes to new ways of seeing the relationship between interpretation, law, and justice: other spaces and cultural practices, other ways of reading and non-reading, other crystallisations of rules, order and discipline.
Abstracts of no more than 300 words are due by May 25, 2018. For more information, please see the symposium website.
