Dr. Shadaab Rahemtulla is Lecturer in Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations at the University of Edinburgh. A Canadian Muslim of Indian descent, Shadaab completed his doctorate in contemporary Islamic thought at the University of Oxford. He is the author of the book, Qur'an of the Oppressed: Liberation Theology and Gender Justice in Islam, published by Oxford University Press. As the title of his book suggests, Shadaab's primary interest lies in how religion can be (re)interpreted as a liberating force to confront contexts of marginalization, such as patriarchy, poverty, racism, and empire. Before joining the University of Edinburgh, he was Assistant Professor at the University of Jordan, where he taught for six years.

On November 12th at 4 PM in 555 Weiser Hall, join us for a presentation on reading the Qur'an through the lens of Indigenous rights: Canaanites, Israelites, and the Biblical legacy.

This event is free and open to the public.
