From the Adriatic to the Sulu Sea: Islam and Identity in Southeast Europe and Southeast Asia

Thursday, February 9, 2012 to Friday, February 10, 2012

This conference is the third in a series comparing two edges of the Islamic world. The choice of Southeast Europe and Southeast Asia for the foci of these conferences is motivated by the fact that in each of these regions at opposite ends of the traditional Islamic world Islam is an important historical and social factor that continues to interact with both previous and subsequent cultural traditions and political realities in ways that are informatively comparable. This conference understands "identities" in the broadest possible manner, and the papers will examine phenomena from music and literacy to politics and spirituality and beyond.
