This project will bring together Muslim scholars and thinkers from around the world to explore the relevance of Islamic moral theology to issues facing the Muslim community and humankind globally. It will explore how Muslim conceptions of virtue can contribute to a broader, cross-cultural conversation about human ethical challenges in the 21st century, including income inequality and unsustainable consumerism; virtual platforms that enhance, but sometimes also distort, our human connections; and the need to create spaces that better connect us with our local communities. The project will explore how Islamic moral theology should be rethought and reimagined in light of the way human beings live and relate to one another in the modern world. By bringing together innovative work around these issues, the project aims to generate a synergetic stream that incubates future-looking perspectives on human moral agency and accountability in light of new developments in science, technology, and culture. In undertaking this work, the Ali Vural Ak Center will draw on its extensive global network of scholars, public intellectuals, and community leaders to broaden the conversations begun by the project, and will utilize its digital, public-facing scholarship platform The Maydan to disseminate project outputs to wider communities. It also aims to produce various publications targeted to an academic audience, including online roundtables, pedagogical resources, and a special issue of a prominent, mainstream journal in the fields of religious ethics or moral philosophy to transcend Islamic Studies and create new bridges to mainstream philosophical discussions.
