Description:The Social Science and the Middle East Lecture Series presents "Local Texts: Shari'a in Mid-Century Yemen," a talk by Brinkley Messick, Department of Anthropology, Columbia University.

Clifford Geertz famously described law as a form of "local knowledge." In this lecture, Messick examines Islamic Shari'a as it was manifested in a system of local texts, referring to a corpus of written work produced by a particular community of Muslim jurists and practitioners in Yemen, the Zaydis.

Additional support is provided by the Department of Asian Studies.
