The historiography of modern Syria has been dominated by the work of political, economic, and social historians. While scholarly interest in the cultural and intellectual fields has increased over the past decade or so, this work tends to focus on the post-2000 period, with the lion’s share of attention being placed on cultural production and intellectual engagements from the Syrian uprising in 2011 and after.

Dr. Mohammed Bamyeh, Professor of Sociology, University of Pittsburgh will present on his book Lifeworlds of Islam: The Pragmatics of a Religion.

How do ancient ideas continue to appear relevant in a modern world? In Lifeworlds of Islam: The Pragmatics of a Religion (Oxford UP, 2019), Mohammad Bamyeh shows that Islam has lived on not because of any standard dogmas, but because it served as a compass for practical individual orientations or “lifeworlds.” The text maps out how Muslims have employed the faith to foster global networks, public philosophies, and engaged civic lives.
