"The Study of Islam & Muslim Communities in Latin America and the Caribbean in Transdisciplinary Perspective"

Registration for the online colloquium on October 20−21 is open now. Join us for one or all of the panels, the launch of Ken Chitwood's new book "The Muslims of Latin America and the Caribbean" and Aisha Khan's keynote.

News from Sep 28, 2021

This colloquium features scholars addressing gaps in both Islamic studies and the study of Latin America as well as the Caribbean in transdisciplinary perspective. As the study of Latin America and the Caribbean is not at the center of Islamic studies and vice versa, this colloquium offers space for discussing novel, experimental research in both fields, which will further promote their respective incorporation.

You are invited to attend the colloquium and to register HERE. Only registrants will receive an invite to attend the panels. Registration is limited to 25 people per panel, while Dr. Aisha Khan's keynote and The Muslims of Latin America and the Caribbean book launch are open to the public. The deadline for registration is on October 17, please register before. Looking forward to seeing you!
