Islamic and Friendship Studies at Oberlin College

A Conference on Friendship Studies in Rosemont College

On April 26, 2019, I was invited to a conference on Friendship Studies in Rosemont College in Philadelphia. The organizer, professor Jennifer Jackson put together a number of panels to explore the status of Friendship Studies in contemporary academia. Importantly she introduced Oberlin as the only American institution of higher education in America where an interdisciplinary approach to friendship is offered. I participated as one of the four invited panelist and made a presentation about why Friendship Studies is an important field of academic inquiry for attaining a paradigm shift in the current international affairs that is fraught with war and violation.
