Daniel, Islam, Apocalyptic
Feb 24-25th 2022, and afterwards
Due to COVID and to the international interest in this conference, we have decided to go entirely online, and to change the timing. Instead of having a single intensive period of 3 days, we will begin with two half days (morning US time/afternoon UK time/evening Asia time), and then have a series of seminars which will be spread across several months.
Note that this means that we can continue to consider abstracts. We would particularly welcome more papers which would look at (1) Islamic Daniel traditions and (2) the implications of broader 'apocalyptic' and end-times thinking for Christian-Muslim relations.
