Possible themes for paper topics include (but are not limited to):
* lived Islam in urban and rural environments
* critical responses to tradition and authority
* revival and reform movements and the notion of multiple modernities
* popular and vernacular Islam in current and historical contexts
* construction of competing identities
* Islamic art and architecture
* pluralistic ethics and Islam
* living and engaging sacred texts
* multiple interpretive authorities and local traditions
* Muslim women as scholars and leaders
