CSRS Summer Lectures 2013

Lecture 1 of 3 -


The Verbal Exchange between Noah and his People in the Qur’an
Abdelmadjid Benhabib, University of Tlemcen, Algeria, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow

The verbal exchange between Noah and his people in the Qur’an will be discussed. Within the exchange one can see two often opposite worldviews: monotheism and polytheism. The talk will explore this verbal exchange in comparison with principles associated with dialogue theory (constructive exchange; turn taking, etc.).

In both his BA and MA, Abdelmadjid Benhabib dealt with discourse analysis (the study of dialogue and narration) through linguistic and pragmatics tools. In his current PhD program in Algeria, he continues to use this approach in his study of the Qur’anic text.
