Journal of Religious Minorities under Muslim Rule
Editors-in-Chief: Abbas Aghdassi, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, and Aaron Hughes, University of Rochester, New York, USA
The Journal of Religious Minorities under Muslim Rule provides a primary venue for scholarly studies that examine religious minorities (such as Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and other minoritarian Muslim groups) under majoritarian Muslim rule.
The journal covers a large temporal period, spanning from 7th century Arabia to 1922 (the end of Ottoman rule), in addition to a large geographic area from North Africa and al-Andalus in the West to Iran, some Central Asian lands, well into Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, and Indonesia in the East.
The focus includes minority-minority, minority-majority, and minority-state relations. In addition to its broad temporal and geographic reach, this is an interdisciplinary journal which will appeal to those working in specific disciplines, including history, religious studies, literature, legal studies, and archaeology.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The journal welcomes original papers and review essays that focus on any temporal and geographic areas. We are particularly interested in, but not limited to, papers that:
• offer an inter-/multi-disciplinary approach to the topic
• re-examine monolithic view(s) on minorities and their status
• analyze minority relations as dynamic, fluid, and every-changing
The following questions are of particular interest:
• What can we learn about the complexity of Islam and Muslims from understanding the minorities in its and their midst?
• What do we learn about these minoritarian traditions from their existence within a larger Muslim environment?
