    The panel will broadly address topics relating to Islamic criminal law from any historical period or geographic region. Particular interest will be in papers that focus on the range of issues raised by contemporary discussions of mass incarceration in the United States. The goal is to explore how Islamic law might respond, react, embrace, or reject mass incarceration and its associated topics. Papers might explore theories of punishment in Islamic law, juristic responses to the rise of prisons, notions of disparate treatment in sentencing, the role of race, challenges of overcriminalization, and so on.  
    Business Meeting will be held Saturday, January 4 at 7:00 am to 8:30 am.
