After welcoming IQSA’s first two inaugural Lifetime Members, Professor Jane Dammen McAuliffe and Professor Reza Aslan, in 2017, the Executive Office eagerly anticipates forthcoming Lifetime and Institutional Members in the IQSA community. You can read more about these two new membership tiers on our Membership Page.

One benefit of IQSA Membership is discounted rates for the anticipated Annual Meeting held in conjunction with the Society of Biblical Literature and American Academy of Religion in November, 2018. This year we will convene in breathtaking Denver, Colorado, so mark your calendars and keep an eye out for the forthcoming Call for Papers! Catch up on last year’s 2017 Annual Meeting held in Boston, MA in the Program Book and Conference Report.

2018 also brings about Volume 4 of IQSA’s flagship publication, the Review of Qur’anic Research (Ed. Shari Lowin), and Volume 2 of the much anticipated Journal of the International Qur’anic Studies Association (Ed. Vanessa De Gifis). Online access to these resources is FREE to all current IQSA Members!

We look forward to an exciting and productive year ahead as IQSA furthers its mission of building bridges across the globe via collaborative scholarship!
