MEMO in conversation with Andrew March

Join us for a live conversation with Andrew March, Professor of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts

Join us for a live conversation with Professor of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts, Andrew March, as we discuss his book 'The caliphate of man: Popular sovereignty in modern Islamic thought' which examines the problem of divine and popular sovereignty in modern Islamic thought through the Arab Spring. The discussion will also look at the Ennahda movement in Tunisia.

March's research and teaching interests are in the areas of political philosophy, Islamic law and political thought, religion and political theory, and comparative and non-Western political theory more generally. His first book, 'Islam and liberal citizenship: The search for an overlapping consensus', is an exploration of the Islamic juridical discourse on the rights, loyalties and obligations of Muslim minorities in liberal politics.
