Dr. Syed Nomanul Haq, Faculty, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at LUMS presented a working paper titled “Don Quixote in Context: Ethics, Adab, and the Maqamat Literature,” at an international workshop and conference titled “Being Muslim in the World: Everyday Ethics and Cultures of Adab.”

The workshop brought together a select number of scholars with a predominate focus on two spheres of ethics: adab and everyday ethics. The aim of the workshop was to identify concepts, issues, and directions of research in Muslim lived ethics. The workshop was designed as an intensive dialogue between scholars; sharing insights, issues and concerns. The broad themes and issues of the workshop included Social ethics, Learning ethics and Conceptual contribution/significance.
The workshop provided a unique opportunity for Pakistani, Malay, American and other scholars from a diversity of academic disciplines to explore the concept of adab as a lived practice, advancing scholarship on this important topic, deepening scholarly networks, and providing a platform for scholarly publications. It was a closed session, inviting intensive engagement with a set of issues, providing participants an opportunity to draw upon their research and areas of expertise to creatively imagine new paths for scholarship on everyday ethics.
