Johanna Pink is Professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Freiburg. Among her publications are one monograph as well as numerous articles and handbook chapters on contemporary, modern and 18th century Qur'anic exegesis as well as classical Qur'anic hermeneutics.

Description

This chapter introduces text samples from Indonesian, English-speaking, and Arab contexts that represent various ways in which contemporary Qurʾānic interpretations, especially Qurʾānic commentaries, appropriate exegetical traditions, identify with them, and situate themselves within them: by continuing the genealogical tradition of tafsīr; by condensing it; by editing, translating, and reshaping it; and by using new paradigms to defend traditional arguments.
