IN BRIEF: An-Na'im Delivers Tanner Lectures on Human Values
Abdullahi An-Na’im, Emory Law’s Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law, delivered the Tanner Lectures on Human Values on March 9–11, at the University of California-Berkeley.
An internationally recognized scholar of Islam and human rights, An-Na’im spoke on mediating the paradox of inclusive universality of human values in the permanent reality of human difference. During the three-day event, professors from Columbia, Princeton and Washington universities, provided commentary on An-Na’im’s lectures.
