New SSIDD YouTube Channel and Video Lectures Page

I’m pleased to announce the creation of a new YouTube channel for the SSIDD, designed to serve as “a collection point for video materials (lectures, readings, scripted demonstrations, etc.) pertinent to the study of Islamicate dialectical disputation (jadal, munāẓara, ādāb al-baḥth), [and] to be linked to the Society’s website.”

In addition, a new “Video Lectures” page on the SSIDD website

( )

currently contains links to the following:

Khaled El-Rouayheb’s “Discourse on Method: Dialectics (ʿIlm al-Munāẓara) in the Ottoman Empire in the 17th century” (presented 28 April 2016, CRASSH, University of Cambridge);

My own “Marginal Munāẓara: Dialectical Pedagogy in the Scholia and Glosses of al-Kīlānī’s Sharḥ al-Risāla fī Ādāb al-Baḥth” (long and short versions; the latter presented at BRAIS 2017, University of Chester);

And my “Taḥqīq al-Muḥaqqiq fī Ādāb al-Baḥth : Editing a Verifier-Dialectician” (presented at BRAIS 2016, University of London).

More video lectures are on the way.
