Report on Guest Lecture by Dr. Paul Hedges, on writing skills with critical approaches in Religious Studies

(29 November 2021) School of Religious and Social Studies (Faisalabad), hosted a guest lecture on the Study Skills program. This was intended to raise interest in study skills and to complement the in–house offered lectures.  Dr. Paul Hedges (Associate Professor of Interreligious Studies at the Studies in Interreligious Religious in Plural Societies Programme (SRP), S. Rajaratnam School of International Relations (RSIS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore), gave a talk and addressed various ideas about the study and writing methods, offering practical advice on critical approaches, and on ways that students can use and interact effectively with secondary sources when doing individual research and when writing essays in Islamic Studies. He used a range of examples, including news items on student issues, in order to demonstrate the difference between subjective and objective approaches, and he suggested the best ways of using greater perspective when engaging with potentially contentious issues. The talk also included a detailed segment on deploying secondary sources in academic writing, in which he offered close readings of several examples intended to contrast ineffectual methods with effective techniques, to demonstrate ways that essay–writers can engage in a dialogue with the academic community in Religious and biblical studies. The lecture was well attended, and the resource person agreed to be videoed, so the talk has been made available on the Study Skills Moodle for this year's and future Islamic studies students. In the end, Dr, Yasir Farooq Editor of the Journal of Religious and Social Studies, thanked the audience and briefly introduced SRSS and its objectives.
