BirthDate None

Hussein Abdulsater (Ph.D. Religious Studies, Yale 2013) works on Muslim theological discourses and the formation of communal identities and self-consciousness in Islam. The interaction between these discourses and self- consciousness provides the ground against which he analyzes various phenomena, ranging from classic schools to modern Islamic reformism. In particular, he studies how such themes were approached in humanistic disciplines such as historiography and literature, in addition to theology and Qur’anic exegesis. He has published articles on Mu’tazila school, Shi’ism, Qur’anic exegesis, freedom of consciousness in classical Islamic theology, human nature in Islamic theology and the noble human existence in the Qurʾān.
