Berkeley Series in Postclassical Islamic Scholarship

The Berkeley Series in Postclassical Islamic Scholarship will explore Islamicate intellectual history as represented by various disciplines and genres. Translations, critical editions, and monographs related to texts in the fields of philosophy, literature, theology, poetics, grammar, hadith, exegesis, etc. are all welcome, provided they directly and/or indirectly concern the legacy of rationalist (ma'quli) scholarship. Authors exploring the impact of Islamicate rationalism in traditionalist/transmitted sciences and in non-Muslim scholarship (regardless of the language of the primary sources) are also encouraged to submit manuscripts.
