Youcef Soufi, Visiting Scholar

Youcef Soufi is in the final stages of completing his book, The Rise and Fall of Critical Islam, which examines the formation of a legal debate culture in 10th century Iraq and Persia. He has used his last year with the CCMS to present sections of the book before public and academic audiences in Vancouver and elsewhere, gaining invaluable feedback for the final product. In addition, his contribution to the Oxford Handbook of Islamic Law came out in hard copy and he has contributed an article to an forthcoming book on Islamic dialectic.
