Anthony Smith spent four weeks, beginning in July, in London at the Institute for Ismaili Studies. Here, he worked on the translation of Christian Jambet’s The Great Resurrection at Alamut: Forms of Liberty in Ismaili Shi’ism. Smith also spoke about a paper at a conference named “A Post Secular Age? New Narratives of Religion, Science, and Society.” This conference was held at the Ian Ramsey Centre of St. Anne’s College, Oxford University. His paper was entitled “Black American Islam and the Critique of the Secular.” In this paper, Smith examined the ways that the study and engagement with Black American Islam has been neglected in religious studies, especially in “secular studies.” He suggested ways that engagement with this living tradition might open up new avenues of thought for the study of religion and our understanding of the post secular moment we appear to be in.
