The Qur’an in China at Southern Methodist University

10733769_10152820156077276_7172536032861314488_oI am heading to Southern Methodist University to give a lecture on the Qur’an in China on October 28th. The event is part of their Asian Studies Lecture Series.

I very much appreciate the invitation from the Director of Asian Studies, Steven Lindquist.

Here is what I will be talking about:
This presentation explores the history of the Qur’an in China. I offer a brief overview of the history of Muslims in China in order to situate material and textual manifestations of the Qur’an in Chinese society. We conclude with an examination of Chinese Muslim translational choices in the first rendering of the Qur’an in Chinese.
