Presentasjon

Sami Al-Daghistani (PhD, 2017, Islamic Studies, Leiden University, co-supervision at Columbia University) is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Norwegian School of Theology, Religion and Society, an Associate Faculty at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research, and a Research Scholar at the Middle East Institute, Columbia University. His teaching and research focus on Islamic intellectual history, the intersection of economics, environment and ethics, as well as on Islam and modernity. Sami's project explores the concept of sustainability in classical Islam.

Sami has edited two books on the Second Gulf War (2010) and on Middle Eastern culture (2013), and translated to Slovenian Ibn Baṭṭūṭa's Riḥla and Ibn Ṭufayl's Ḥayy ibn Yaqẓān. His recent publications are Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī's Ethical Teachings: Economics of Happiness (Anthem Press, 2021), The Making of Islamic Economic Thought (Cambridge University Press, 2021), and Pluralism in Emergenc(i)es (Review of Middle East Studies, 2021). In 2021, he launched a research group Critical Islamic Studies (https://www.mf.no/casr/projects/critical-islamic-studies).
