Muslim Cultures of the Indian Ocean

To celebrate AKU-ISMC's publication of Muslim Cultures of the Indian Ocean: Diversity and Pluralism, Past and Present, please join Professors Stéphane Pradines and Farouk Topan and their guests, Dr Farah Faizal, High Commissioner of the Republic of the Maldives, and Dr Annabel Teh Gallop, Head of Southeast Asia at the British Library, for a discussion of this rich crossroads of Mulim cultures.

About the Book:

Scholars are increasingly realising the centrality of the Indian Ocean in the study of Muslim Cultures. This volume, edited by Profs Stéphane Pradines and Farouk Topan, explores the expanding and chaging roles of these Muslim communities across the Indian Ocean World, from the seventh century to the mediaeval period to the present day. It explores the network and movements of peoples, ideas and ideologies, as well as art, culture, religion and heritage.
