This interdisciplinary conference will explore the diverse trajectories and contexts of texts in Muslim societies from oral cultures to the digital age. Over two days, we will bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines to discuss how texts have shaped knowledge production, dissemination, and consumption in Muslim societies.

The conference will feature discussions including the relationship between texts and human agency, the impact of technological shifts on textual practices, and the challenges and opportunities posed by the digital age. The conference will feature a keynote address by Professor Wendy Doniger, a leading scholar of the history of religions.
