The Islam in Africa Studies Group (IASG)–a coordinate organization of the African Studies Association–plans to sponsor a number of panels at the ASA annual meeting taking place in Atlanta, GA from November 29 - December 1, 2018.
H-IslamInAfrica promotes scholarly research, both within and outside Africa, in all areas and disciplines of the social sciences and humanities relevant to Islam in Africa. We want to encourage international cooperation and facilitate the exchange of ideas and meaningful dialogue among persons engaged in research on Islam in Africa. Toward those ends, the network aims to:
- Encourage the publication and dissemination of scholarly and artistic works as well as primary sources on Islamic studies and related topics.
- Organize panels, symposia, and conferences on Islam in Africa at meetings of regional, national and international organizations.
- And provide the general public with information on issues of historical, cultural, and contemporary interest in Islam in Africa.
