Scholarly Meetings On the Qur'an and Tafsir

This study is a general evaluation of academic activities about the Qur'an and its tafsir/exegesis that are performed in Turkey. The extent of this study consists of two parts: the academic meetings (symposiums, congresses, panels, conferences, open-forums, seminars, workshops, forums etc.) and the committee gatherings of the recent tafsir studies departments. First the academic meetings and then the committee gatherings have been considered in terms of their historical development and contents and with specific emphasis on their turning points. A variety of discoveries were concluded in this study. The most significant one is the parallel drawn between the quantitative increase in the number of scholarly meetings organized in the fields of Qur'an and tafsir in the last thirty years and the qualitative improvement towards a content that is more stable, robust, and that prioritizes academic concerns.
