Lecture on Middle East and Islamic Studies
[open]
  • Dr. Iqbal Surani (École Pratique des Hautes Études) “From Haridas to ‘Alidas”
  • The figure of the Imam is central in shi’sme, particularly for the khojas ismailis where the Imam is physically present in the person of Shah Karim al-Husayni, Aga Khan IV. He is considered as the 49th Imam descendant of the Prophet Muhammad from his daughter Fatima and his cousin and son in law ‘Ali (d. 661). An emblematic and historical figure, the Imam assumes a double heritage that of Abrahamic tradition vested in the interpretation of the Quran, and presented in the devotional texts of ginan and du’a as the 10th avatar of Vishnu in the hindu tradition.Through an analysis of two ginan and of some selected verses of Kalam-i Maula which are examples of the devotional literature of the community we shall try to understand the construction of religious identity of the Khojas Shia Imami Ismailis in South East Asia.

The 7th meeting, ILCAA Joint Research Project “A Crosslinguistic Study of Nominalizer-final Constructions: The ‘Cogitation Process’ Approach”

Further research into the nominalizer-final construction in individual languages will be presented and assessed. Also, for each language the relevance of the “cogitation process” to the data collected so far and characteristic uses of the nominalizer-final construction will be examined. Furthermore, the findings of the entire project will be synthesized. A workshop is planned for January 2016 to report the results of the present project. Keeping the planned workshop in mind, topics for further research, methods of investigation, and preparation for the workshop will be discussed.
