The Religion and Global Security Division, Ikeuchi Laboratory held a lecture series on Quranic Studies “Jews and Judaism in the Quran” by Prof. Meir Bar-Asher of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In sum total, more than fifty researchers (mostly, Islamologists) attended this lecture series.
This lecture series is part of the academic events carried out under the international research project “Humanitas Futura: Constructing an International Research Network for the Study of Philosophy and Religion” which is driven forward by the project researcher Dr. Koji Yamashiro. This project aims to open new vistas in the field of Humanities through the construction of a multi-strata and scalable international research network, which literally traverses diverse areas of the study of philosophy and religion. The academic cooperation between the University of Tokyo and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem constitutes its central hub, wherefrom there would emerge an international research platform, which, integrating all available academic resources, human and material alike, could realize true interdisciplinarity and creativity towards Humanitas Futura, both in method and content.
This lecture series was held under the auspices of ROLES (RCAST Open Laboratory for Emergence Strategies) and jointly funded by the Religion and Global Security Division, Ikeuchi Laboratory of RCAST, the University of Tokyo and the Institute for Advanced Global Studies (IAGS), the University of Tokyo.
