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, An-Na’im was joined by professors from Columbia University, Princeton University and Washington University, who provided commentary on his lectures.

The Tanner Lectures are a distinguished multi-university scholarly lecture series on the subject of human values. They are presented annually at nine universities including Cambridge, Harvard, Michigan, Oxford, Princeton, Stanford, Utah, Yale and Berkeley. Appointment as a Tanner lecturer is recognition for uncommon achievement and outstanding abilities in the field of human values.
