Islam in Asia: Traditions and Transformations

A four-week college and university institute for twenty-five participants, examining the history of Islam in Asia and its place in contemporary South and Southeast Asia, to be held on the adjacent campuses of the University of Hawaii and the East-West Center.

"Islam in Asia: Traditions and Transformations" will enable undergraduate educators to develop curricular content on Islam, including its origins in the Middle East, the history of its spread throughout South and Southeast Asia, and its place in contemporary Asia. Balancing the dual needs for breadth and depth in teaching and learning about traditions that are culturally and historically distant, this multidisciplinary four-week summer institute program will offer participants the context-rich engagement with key traditions, practices, and primary texts (in translation) needed to develop curricular materials applicable across a wide range of humanities disciplines, including religion, philosophy, history, art history and literature.
