I’m very excited to visit the University of Colorado, Boulder for a talk about my book, Interpreting Islam in China: Pilgrimage, Scripture, and Language in the Han Kitab. I’m grateful to my former advisor Terry Kleeman for inviting me back to campus. I did my Masters degree in Religious Studies at CU, graduating in 2006. Terry helped me work through a translation and analysis of my first Chinese language Islamic text: Wang Daiyu’s Zhengjiao Zhenquan. A revised version was published as “The Heart of Wang Daiyu’s Philosophy: The Seven Subtleties of Islamic Spiritual Physiology,” in the Journal of Sufi Studies.
Event is free and open to the public if you are in the Boulder area. Wednesday January 23 at 6pm.
