Global Muslim Encounters Conference
The Centre of Islamic Studies is co-sponsoring and participating in the Global Muslim Encounters conference being held in Cambridge on 9-10 December. This two-day interdisciplinary CRASSH conference aims to compare and connect such encounters as they occurred in various spatial and temporal settings since ca. 1250. Bringing together historians, art historians, anthropologists, political scientists, and scholars of comparative literature and Islamic studies who work on Islamic communities all across the globe, the aim is to analyse how Muslim travellers, scholars, state officials and migrant workers made sense of radically different forms of practical piety and religious thought they encountered while being on the move.
