Feb 24 2021
10:00 am - 11:00 am




The Madrasa Discourses project, which works to advance the theological and scientific literacy of Islamic studies scholars globally, has developed a free and open curricular site. Under the leadership of Dr. Ebrahim Moosa, Mirza Family Professor of Islamic Thought & Muslim Societies, and with the generous support of the John Templeton Foundation, students and instructors around the world will now have access to an open version of the Madrasa Discourses curriculum, complete with tailored video content, interrelated guiding questions, and special access to academic texts.

The website guides participants through the equivalent of four semesters of scholarly material, weaving traditional Islamic theological resources with contemporary reflections emerging from the Islamic as well as other traditions.

Join us for a virtual launch event introducing the new curriculum and giving an overview of resources available throughout the website.
