New Publication: Free Speech, Scholarly Critique and the Limits of Expression in Islam
AMI Press is pleased to announce the publication of its latest proceedings of the 9th AMI Contemporary Fiqhī Issues Workshop entitled “Free Speech, Scholarly Critique and the Limits of Expression in Islam.” The papers selected for this publication explore a variety of methodological and hermeneutical challenges and approaches to the problem of free speech and the limits of expression in Islam. Especially in the wake of the Salman Rushdie controversy in 1989, Muslims have responded to the challenges posed by so-called apostates and blasphemers in a variety of ways. Likewise, there has been a parallel rise in Islamophobia directed toward Muslims that has raised challenging questions about the conflict of freedoms in the West. This volume offers a timely survey of different approaches within law, political science, theology and sociology that provide a fresh look at the problem of free speech, scholarly critique and the limits of expression in Islam.
