  • Date: Dec 16, 2019
  • Time: 14:00 - 15:30
  • Speaker: Noah Salomon (Carleton College)
  • Noah Salomon is Associate Professor of Religion at Carleton College. His first book, For Love of the Prophet: An Ethnography of Sudan’s Islamic State (Princeton University Press, 2016) examines the inner-workings of an Islamic political project and its refractions as it sought to reform state and society, and was in turn reformed by them. It won the 2017 Albert Hourani Prize from the Middle East Studies Association and a 2017 Excellence in the Study of Religion Award from the American Academy of Religion. A recent recipient of a Mellon New Directions Fellowship, Salomon is currently based in Beirut, Lebanon, working on a transregional project on the ethics of Islamic unity in the context of popular revolution and in its aftermath.
