Islam: Alternative Religious Voices In World Affairs
Reforming the way Muslims practice their faith and interpret their scripture has been a pressing demand for many in the Muslim world. Achieving such reform has profound implications that transcend the confines of abstract academic debate and resonate in the everyday lives of Muslims at large. Historically, scholars who have attempted this formidable task have faced tremendous challenges. This roundtable will examine the profound impact of technology on the way Muslims are accessing various interpretations and engaging theological texts previously available exclusively to Islamic clergy. We will also show how young Muslims are becoming active participants in reforming the understanding of their faith.
