NEH Islam in Asia

This past summer I had the chance to be part of the NEH Institute Islam in Asia, that took place in Hawaii June 12-July 7. It was a great opportunity to learn about the history and impact that Islam has had in Asia from a great group of scholars, and incorporate what I learned into my own courses. The Institute was directed by Peter Hershock and Nelly van Doorn-Harder, and it included scholars such as Bruce Lawrence, Eric Tagliacozzo, Ronit Ricci, and Ebrahim Moosa. It was an incredible learning experience that allowed me to expand my intellectual horizons, as well as giving me the chance to meet other colleagues from a wide variety of  institutions from whom I was also able to learn a lot.
