When we launched the Latin America and Caribbean Islamic Studies Newsletter last year, our hope was to connect an ever-expanding network of scholars, journalists, and interested members of the public looking to learn more about Islam and Muslims in the region.
Now, we enjoy a community of over 300 individuals connected via our digital newsletter and social media platforms.
We've been able to share multiple original research essays, member notes, and one-on-one interviews with leading experts in the field.
Read the latest edition of the newsletter (Vol. 2, no. 1 - October 2021), with highlights including:
Last minute information about our upcoming colloquium, "The Study of Islam and Muslim Communities in Latin America and the Caribbean in Transdisciplinary Perspective," 20-21 October.
A call for papers for an upcoming special issue of The International Journal of Latin American Religions on "Islam and Muslim Socialities of Latin America" in 2022.
An original research essay on Islam in/of Brazil, in Portuguese.
News from Chile and on the impact of 9/11 across Latin America.
Further calls for contributions to our Annotated Bibliography.
