Open Access Portal: ShariaSource


ShariaSource Online Portal (at Harvard Law School)

ShariaSource provides Country Profiles that give a basic overview of the legal history, institutional structures, and role (or lack thereof) of Islamic law in every country of the world: both member countries of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, which includes some non-Muslim majority countries, and non-members. The Country Profiles draw, in substantial part, on research produced by the Library of Congress, GlobaLex  at NYU, and The Constitute Project at the University of Chicago. The portal is now available as a beta-version.

Open Access E-book: Recasting Islamic Law Religion and the Nation State in Egyptian Constitution Making

 Recasting Islamic Law. Religion and the Nation State in Egyptian Constitution Making

Author: Rachel M. Scott
Cornell University Press | 2021
DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/9781501753985
ISBN: 9781501753985

By examining the intersection of Islamic law, state law, religion, and culture in the Egyptian nation-building process, Recasting Islamic Law highlights how the sharia, when attached to constitutional commitments, is reshaped into modern Islamic state law.

Rachel M. Scott analyzes the complex effects of constitutional commitments to the sharia in the wake of the Egyptian Revolution of 2011. She argues that the sharia is not dismantled by the modern state when it is applied as modern Islamic state law, but rather recast in its service. In showing the particular forms that the sharia takes when it is applied as modern Islamic state law, Scott pushes back against assumptions that introductions of the sharia into modern state law result in either the revival of medieval Islam or in its complete transformation. Scott engages with premodern law and with the Ottoman legal legacy on topics concerning Egypt's Coptic community, women's rights, personal status law, and the relationship between religious scholars and the Supreme Constitutional Court. Recasting Islamic Law considers modern Islamic state law's discontinuities and its continuities with premodern sharia."

Open Access E-Book: Cultural Production and Social Movements After the Arab Spring

Cultural Production and Social Movements After the Arab Spring
Nationalism, Politics, and Transnational Identity

Editor(s): Eid Mohamed, Ayman El-Desouky
ISBN 9780755634187

"The so-called Arab Spring challenged conventional wisdom and certainties about the Arab world where its effects continue to be felt as well as in the diaspora.

This book provides an original contribution to current social and cultural theory on Arab social movements by giving a fuller historical and critical treatment of contemporary artistic and cultural production from the region and beyond."

Open Access E-book: Media and Mapping Practices in the Middle East and North Africa

 Media and Mapping Practices in the Middle East and North Africa

 Producing Space

Edited by: Alena Strohmaier, Angela Krewani
Amsterdam University Press, 2021
ISBN: 9789048541508

" A few months into the popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region in 2009/10, the promises of social media, including its ability to influence a participatory governance model, grassroots civic engagement, new social dynamics, inclusive societies and new opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs, became more evident than ever. Simultaneously, cartography received new considerable interest as it merged with social media platforms. In an attempt to rearticulate the relationship between media and mapping practices, whilst also addressing new and social media, this interdisciplinary book abides by one relatively clear point: space is a media product. The overall focus of this book is accordingly not so much on the role of new technologies and social networks as it is on how media and mapping practices expand the very notion of cultural engagement, political activism, popular protest and social participation." 




Open Access E-book: The Dragoman Renaissance. Diplomatic Interpreters and the Routes of Orientalism

The Dragoman Renaissance. Diplomatic Interpreters and the Routes of Orientalism

E. Natalie Rothman
Cornell University Press | 2021
ISBN: 9781501758508
DOI: 10.1515/9781501758485

" In The Dragoman Renaissance, E. Natalie Rothman traces how Istanbul-based diplomatic translator-interpreters, known as the dragomans, systematically engaged Ottoman elites in the study of the Ottoman Empire—eventually coalescing in the discipline of Orientalism—throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Rothman challenges Eurocentric assumptions still pervasive in Renaissance studies by showing the centrality of Ottoman imperial culture to the articulation of European knowledge about the Ottomans. To do so, she draws on a dazzling array of new material from a variety of archives. By studying the sustained interactions between dragomans and Ottoman courtiers in this period, Rothman disrupts common ideas about a singular moment of "cultural encounter," as well as about a "docile" and "static" Orient, simply acted upon by extraneous imperial powers.

The Dragoman Renaissance creatively uncovers how dragomans mediated Ottoman ethno-linguistic, political, and religious categories to European diplomats and scholars. Further, it shows how dragomans did not simply circulate fixed knowledge. Rather, their engagement of Ottoman imperial modes of inquiry and social reproduction shaped the discipline of Orientalism for centuries to come.

Thanks to generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, through The Sustainable History Monograph Pilot, the ebook editions of this book are available as Open Access volumes from Cornell Open (cornellopen.org) and other repositories."

ISSN: 2633-7282

"The Journal of the Contemporary Study of Islam was launched in 2019 by the Institute for the Contemporary Study of Islam, based in the UK, to investigate Islam and Muslims in the contemporary world. Although we may consider any submissions that fall within the scope of the journal, we are keen on publishing articles that address some of the most pressing issues that Muslims face in the contemporary world, such as: innovative methods in Islamic law; developing trends in the Muslim world (e.g. new forms of Atheism, Deism, and Agnosticism); Islam and politics; sectarianism in the Muslim world; Islamophobia; Islam and social change; Islam and human rights; Muslim-Christian relations; methodological developments in Quranic studies; and hadith studies.

The JCSI aims to reach wider readership beyond the academy, and thus we suggest authors avoid technical language in their submissions. The journal is open access; free of cost for authors and readers alike with unrestricted online access for readers.

The JCSI evaluates manuscripts through a double-blind peer-review process. The journal is published quarterly, and every issue includes original scholarly contributions as well as critical book reviews. We also accept short responses to articles published in the journal.

Once your paper has been assessed for suitability by the editorial team, it will then be peer-reviewed by at least two independent, anonymous expert referees. Response time is generally within two months."

New OA Book: Practices of Commentary


Congratulations to Christina Lechtermann and Markus Stock on the publication of their volume, “Practices of Commentary,” published in the Zeitsprünge series. This book arose out of a conference held at the Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main, in December 2018, where scholars from both the University of Toronto and the Goethe University convened to consider the boundaries of commentary. The introductory chapter of this volume (by Christina Lechtermann and Markus Stock) presents a number of questions about the nature of commentary and leads into a series of premodern case studies in the fields of Arabic, English, German, Jewish, Latin, and Romance studies. Read the text in full below.

A hearty congratulations also to the contributors of this volume, many of whom are currently involved with the Global Commentary project:
Stefanie Brinkmann, “Marginal Commentaries in Ḥadīṯ Manuscripts.”

Open Access E-Book: The Maghrib in the Mashriq Knowledge, Travel and Identity


Edited by: Maribel Fierro and Mayte Penelas
De Gruyter | 2021
ISBN 9783110713305 (e-book)/ 9783110712698 (hardcover)

This is a pioneering book about the impact that knowledge produced in the Maghrib (Islamic North Africa and al-Andalus = Muslim Iberia) had on the rest of the Islamic world.
It presents results achieved in the Research Project "Local contexts and global dynamics: al-Andalus and the Maghrib in the Islamic East (AMOI)", funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities and directed by Maribel Fierro and Mayte Penelas.

The book contains 18 contributions written by senior and junior scholars from different institutions all over the world. It is divided into five sections dealing with how knowledge produced in the Maghrib was integrated in the Mashriq starting with the emergence and construction of the concept 'Maghrib' (sections 1 and 2); how travel allowed the reception in the Maghrib of knowledge produced in the Mashriq but also the transmission of locally produced knowledge outside the Maghrib, and the different ways in which such transmission took place (sections 3 and 4), and how the Maghribis who stayed or settled in the Mashriq manifested their identity (section 5).The book will be of interest not only for those whose research concentrates on the Maghrib but more generally for those who want to understand the complex and shifting dynamics between 'centres' and 'peripheries' as regards intellectual production and circulation."

Open Access E-book: Transregional and Regional Elites – Connecting the Early Islamic Empire

 

Transregional and Regional Elites – Connecting the Early Islamic Empire

Volume 1

Edited by: Hannah-Lena Hagemann and Stefan Heidemann

De Gruyter | 2020

ISBN 9783110669800 (ebook)/ 9783110666489 (hardcover)

DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/9783110669800

"Transregional and regional elites of various backgrounds were essential for the integration of diverse regions into the early Islamic Empire, from Central Asia to North Africa. This volume is an important contribution to the conceptualization of the largest empire of Late Antiquity. While previous studies used Iraq as the paradigm for the entire empire, this volume looks at diverse regions instead. After a theoretical introduction to the concept of ‘elites’ in an early Islamic context, the papers focus on elite structures and networks within selected regions of the Empire (Transoxiana, Khurāsān, Armenia, Fārs, Iraq, al-Jazīra, Syria, Egypt, and Ifrīqiya). The papers analyze elite groups across social, religious, geographical, and professional boundaries.

Although each region appears unique at first glance, based on their heterogeneous surviving sources, its physical geography, and its indigenous population and elites, the studies show that they shared certain patterns of governance and interaction, and that this was an important factor for the success of the largest empire of Late Antiquity"

Open Access E-Book: The Hajj and Europe in the Age of Empire

The Hajj and Europe in the Age of Empire


Editor: Umar Ryad
Leiden, The Netherlands : Brill, [2014]

Series: Leiden Studies in Islam and Society, Volume: 5

"The present volume focuses on the political perceptions of the Hajj, its global religious appeal to Muslims, and the European struggle for influence and supremacy in the Muslim world in the age of pre-colonial and colonial empires. In the late fifteenth century and early sixteenth century, a pivotal change in seafaring occurred, through which western Europeans played important roles in politics, trade, and culture. Viewing this age of empires through the lens of the Hajj puts it into a different perspective, by focusing on how increasing European dominance of the globe in pre-colonial and colonial times was entangled with Muslim religious action, mobility, and agency. The study of Europe’s connections with the Hajj therefore tests the hypothesis that the concept of agency is not limited to isolated parts of the globe. By adopting the “tools of empires,” the Hajj, in itself a global activity, would become part of global and trans-cultural history."

OA Resource: Kanaan (Gaza, Palestine)


"Nisma al-Sallaq, a local architect and a passionate advocate for the Palestinian enclave’s cultural history, set out to change that. Along with a growing team, al-Sallaq, 27, set up Gaza’s first digital archive of historical buildings and heritage sites when she launched a multi-dimensional platform called Kanaan in 2019. With a website, mobile application and Instagram page, the project provides visitors with information in text and video format in English and Arabic, and offers a virtual tour of Gaza’s centuries-old cultural history. Named after the Canaanites who first settled Gaza thousands of years ago, Kanaan has so far documented 311 historical buildings and 76 archaeological sites on the Strip." (Source: al Jazeera.)

OA Resource: Islamic Manuscript Conservation

 


"The Curriculum project:

The Curriculum Model, a collaborative project innitiated by Mandana Barkeshli, Paul Hepworth, and Karin Scheper, was developed to fill a void: Islamic manuscripts constitute a repository of enormous cultural and intellectual value and number in the millions; yet currently there are no educational programs which focus on their specific conservation issues.

Conservators of Islamic manuscripts currently face significant obstacles in order to get proper training. For many would-be conservators in Africa and Asia, educational opportunities may be limited whereas programs in North America and Europe are largely directed towards the conservation of western manuscripts. To address the need for an articulated and directed approach to Islamic manuscript conservation a curriculum model with this particular focus has been written for a two-year program of education. An extended introduction to the curriculum model can be found here.

The program, including a bibliography, can be downloaded here.

Development of the curriculum model was supported by the International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM) and The Islamic Manuscript Association (TIMA)."

Oman Library at the Middle East Institute Digital Library


In October 2014, the Oman Library at the Middle East Institute (MEI) received a grant from Saudi Aramco designated to initiate a digitization of the library’s rare collection. This is the first project of its kind for MEI and the Oman Library. The digitization project utilizes a high quality resolution scanner and aims to digitize and make hundreds of materials available for online use by scholars and researchers from around the globe.

The Oman Library’s online collection is a web-based digital collection of the library’s rare books and manuscripts, consisting entirely of subjects related to Middle Eastern Studies. The topics of the rare collection range from history and culture to works of fiction from the early twentieth century. The collection includes materials in seven different languages -- English, Arabic, French, Farsi, Urdu, Ottoman Turkish, and Turkish -- and publications spanning the period from 1700 to 1921. In addition to the rare collection, MEI has included in the digitalization process all of its own Middle East Institute published works that span from the 1960s to 2004, including its 1947 meeting memos.
