The Islam in the West Program at Harvard University is presently soliciting short contributions for Islamopedia Online, a public web-based resource on contemporary Islamic thought and religious opinion available at at islamopediaonline.org . Since its inception, Islamopedia Online has gathered material on contemporary Muslim intellectual debates, interpretations, and controversies with support from the Carnegie Corporation, the Social Science Research Council, and the Islamic Legal Studies Program at Harvard.
Contributions are displayed under the “Analysis” tab on our website to explain to an audience from the general public the rationales, cultural and political factors, diversity of opinions, and sometimes dissent among religious authorities on a wide range of issues.
We are currently inviting papers on the current Islamic debates on status of religious minorities (in and outside Muslim majority-countries), women’s religious leadership, apostasy, secularism, and bio-ethics. Length should be approximately 3000 words with minimal footnotes. Links to relevant internet multimedia are welcome.
Contributions are compensated on a sliding scale depending on the originality and depth. Submissions should be received by Dec. 1st 2010, unless otherwise arranged. Interested parties contact: email@example.com
