Slavery and Islam – Part 1: The Problem of Slavery
"This is the first in three pieces on the question of Islam and slavery. It demonstrates that the very term ‘slavery’ is so ambiguous as to be functionally useless for the purposes of discussing extreme domination and exploitation across history. It should be conditions of extreme exploitation that are focused on, not shifting terms. The second essay will lay out the understanding of slavery in the Shariah and Islamic civilization. The final part will examine the abolition of slavery in Islam."

Talk recorded on February 7, 2017 at the International Institute of Islamic Thought for the Spring 2017 Lecture Series.
