Intellectual Interactions in the Islamic World: The Ismaili Thread

15th March 2017
The international conference, Intellectual Interactions in the Islamic World: The Ismaili Thread, brought together a team of over thirty leading scholars to reflect upon intellectual currents that flowed between Ismailis and other groups and movements. Through the study of interactions between Ismailis and broader Shi‘i and Sunni currents of thought, the conference aimed at situating Ismaili thought within the broader context of Islamic intellectual history.
