Conference Description:

The third annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics will be held January 4-8, 2012, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, D.C.

We invite paper proposals dealing with any aspect of Muslim ethics. In light of recent events, we particularly welcome proposals in political ethics, dealing with such topics as good governance, democracy, human rights, the right of rebellion, and constitutionalism. Topics may be theoretical or applied, historical or contemporary, textual or philosophical. Sessions are 90 minutes long and consist of a single presenter or panels of up to three speakers, including a discussant. The goal of SSME sessions is to maximize the opportunity for discussion.

Proposals for a single presenter should include the following:

- contact information of presenter (name, institutional affiliation, phone numbers, and e-mail address)
- tentative title
- abstract (500 word minimum, 600 maximum)
- selected bibliography

Proposals for panels should include a list of all panelists, including the convener and discussant (if any), contact information for all panelists, and the tentative title, abstract, and selected bibliography of the papers to be presented.

Proposals should be sent by e-mail to:
Sohail Hashmi
Chair, Program Committee

The deadline for submission of proposals is August 1, 2011. Successful applicants will be notified by August 15, 2011. Working papers should be submitted for uploading to the SSME conference website by December 1, 2011.


The Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics (SSME) is a scholarly association dedicated to advancing intellectual inquiry in Muslim ethics, including the relation of Muslim ethics to other ethical traditions and to social, political, and economic problems. The Society supports academic work in both philosophical and applied ethics, historical as well as contemporary issues. The Society also aims to promote the teaching of Muslim ethics in colleges, universities, and theological schools, to improve understanding of Muslim ethics in the broader society through publications and other educational activities, and to provide a community of discourse and debate for those engaged professionally in the study of Muslim ethics.

All presenters in the annual meeting of the SSME must be members of the Society. For membership forms and other information, please consult the website:

The Society for the Study of Muslim Ethics annual conference runs concurrently with that of the Society of Jewish Ethics and the Society of Christian Ethics. Presented papers are eligible for publication in the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics.
