SHARIAsource

The newest episode of the History Slam podcast features a discussion about  SHARIAsource, a new website developed by the Islamic Legal Studies Program at Harvard University. The site is designed to serve as an accessible resource for people who want to learn more about Sharia Law. In this episode of the History Slam I talk with Meagan Froemming, managing editor of SHARIAsource. We talk about Sharia Law, the purpose of the website, online accessibility, and the place of academics in contributing to public debates. We also explore the challenge with translations and their legal ramifications. You can find the full post here.
