ILSP Director Kristen Stilt and Visiting Fellows Febe Armanios and Bogac Ergene are co-organizing a scholarly workshop on the treatment of animals from Islamic and comparative religious and religio-legal perspectives. The goal of the event is to foster a conversation about how religious traditions consider the interrelated topics of animals, ethics, and law, with the aim of developing an integrated methodology from a comparative perspective. The event is planned for May 19-20, 2016, and will be the first in a series of events on this topic.
