Faculty Profile

Dr. Nauman Faizi

Assistant Professor

Department Of Humanities & Social Sciences

Dr. Faizi obtained his PhD from the department of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia in 2016. His PhD dissertation examines Muhammad Iqbal’s The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam and argues that its project of reconciling pre-modern scriptural texts with modern philosophy and science displays two interwoven, tension-riddled epistemological tendencies. Nauman’s project identifies and clarifies the various ways that The Reconstruction wrestles with what he labels “representationalist” and “pragmatic” models of inquiry in its attempt to articulate the meaning of philosophic frameworks, religious practice, scientific claims and authority of scriptural claims for modern Muslim subjects. He completed his undergraduate studies in Politics and Economics from LUMS in 2009 and was associated with LUMS in the capacity of Teaching and Research Assistant during 2009 and 2010. Before joining LUMS again, he was associated with University of Virginia as Instructor of Religious Studies.

His research interests include:

·       Philosophy of Religion

·       Philosophical and Scriptural Hermeneutics

·       Semiotics

·       Religion and Modernity
