This conference brings together scholars to explore the nature and salience of Islam and Muslim communities from a global perspective. While journalists and political pundits often describe transregional Islamic movements as primarily political or militant, this conference will explore cultural, social, and scholarly aspects to transregional and global Muslim communities.

Invited scholars will approach this question through the lenses such as migration, transregionalism, transmission of scientific knowledge, while acknowledging the conceptual tension between global and local, and universal and particular identities and practices.
