Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics Annual Meeting 2013


The fourth Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics
(SSME) will be held January 3-6, 2013, in Chicago, Illinois. We invite
paper proposals dealing with any aspect of Muslim ethics. Topics may be
theoretical or applied, historical or contemporary, textual or
philosophical. In light of current events, we especially encourage
papers on the themes of ?Muslim representation? and ?ethics from the
margins.? Sessions are 90 minutes long and consist of a single
presenter or, more commonly, panels of up to three speakers, including
a respondent. The goal of SSME sessions is to maximize the opportunity
for discussion. The Annual Meeting of the SSME is held concurrently
with the Annual Meetings of the Society of Christian Ethics and the
Society of Jewish Ethics, and presents unparalleled opportunities for
scholarship in comparative ethics and religion.

Proposals for single presenters and panels should include the following:

* contact information of presenter(s), including optional convener
and/or respondent: name, institutional affiliation, phone numbers, and
e-mail address
* tentative title(s)
* abstract(s) and select bibliography (500 word minimum, 600 maximum
per presenter)

Proposals and queries should be sent by e-mail to:

The Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics (SSME) is a scholarly
association dedicated to advancing intellectual inquiry in Muslim
ethics, including the relation of Muslim ethics to other ethical
traditions and to social, political, and economic problems. The Society
supports academic work in both philosophical and applied ethics,
historical as well as contemporary issues. The Society also aims to
promote the teaching of Muslim ethics in colleges, universities, and
theological schools, to improve understanding of Muslim ethics in the
broader society through publications and other educational activities,
and to provide a community of discourse and debate for those engaged
professionally in the study of Muslim ethics.

All presenters in the annual meeting of the SSME must be members of the
Society. For membership forms and other information, please consult the
