Transcultural Lenses on Islam
Friday, February 7, 2014

This symposium brings together six eminent scholars to ask how Islam translates across cultures and geographies. Our goal is to have a conversation across the disciplines--religious studies, history, anthropology, and ethnomusicology--on the transcultural study of Islam.
