The 3rd Summer School on Ibadism will take place at the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies, Simon Fraser University (Vancouver - Canada) on 24-28 June 2019 (arrivals on the 23rd and departures on the 29th), as a joint initiative of the Simon Fraser University-Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies, University "L’Orientale" of Naples, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the College of Sharī ‘a Sciences of the Sultanate of Oman.
The theme of the 3rd summer school is:
IBADI ISLAM: A Critical Examination of Sources
This summer school will survey and critically examine Ibadi sources, from the early period until the present. Students and researchers will become familiar with these sources, and understand the context in which they have developed and have been used.
In this perspective, the Summer School will address, in a comparative and multidisciplinary perspective, the following issues:
• Presentation of Ibadi Source, Past and Present
• Ibadi Sources in the Context of the Broader Islamic Historiography
• Ibadi Historical Narratives and Identity Construction
• Historical Narrations and Historical appreciations
