Divine Communication and Revelation: A Muslim Theological Perspective

Back to Project Page

Seminar on God Talk: Divine Revelation and Communication

Date: 18-19 February 2022
Venue: Online Zoom Event
Panellists: 12 scholars participating in the project

A seminar on God Talk: Divine Communication and Revelation will be held online, in form of a zoom event. This mid-project event will bring together all of the academic personnel contributing to the volume on Divine Communication so that they can ‘road-test’ their material in the form of short, chapter-relevant seminar papers. This two-day seminar will accommodate twelve twenty-minute papers – with fifteen minutes Q&A for each paper.

The seminar will be open to public, with the attendance of as many scholars and students as possible. Each scholar will present his or her paper and receive feedback through dedicated feedback sessions. Feedback will later be fed into the finalising of chapters. The event will be broadcast via IFMT’s YouTube channel.
