Tafsîr. The Evolution of a Genre in the Framework of Islamic Intellectual History (15-17 September 2010)

Tafsîr. The Evolution of a Genre in the Framework of Islamic Intellectual History (15-17 September 2010, Berlin

Freie Universität Berlin, Institut für Islamwissenschaft

The study of Qur’anic exegesis (tafsīr) has long been primarily considered to be an auxiliary science to the study of the Qur’an. Exegetical works have for a long time been utilized in Islamic stud-ies to understand the Qur’anic text and to study how Muslims at different times understood it. However, the study of the methods and premises of tafsir, its history and changes in the course of time, and its place in the framework of Islamic intellectual history has so far largely been neglected. The conference aims at filling this gap and at establishing the study of Qur’anic exegesis as a discrete and independent field of study. To this end, the conference brings together renowned scholars of Qur’anic exegesis from different countries of the Middle East, Europe and America, and young scholars who have worked on different aspects of tafsīr. The conference wishes to stimulate discussion, debate and research on all aspects of the study of Qur’anic exegesis. It also aims at initiating exchange and cooperation between scholars to outline the framework of this field of study. The conference will include papers on a variety of topics, including, among others, exegetical methods, the study of individual exegetes and their works, the problems of classification of different genres within tafsīr, and the formation and evolution of Qur’anic exegesis from its beginning to modern times. The conference papers will be published in an anthology.
