About the Project

Project term: April, 2020–March, 2023

Based on the project team members’ field research, the general goal of this project is to clarify the impact of Islamic transnational networks and the so-called Islamism (or various versions of it) on local societies and cultures in various Southeast Asian countries. This study also plans to take a comparative perspective to re-examine local responses and reactions to the impact of transnational Islam, for which researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds, such as anthropology, history, political science, area studies, and Islamic studies, will be asked to contribute and workshops and/or conferences will be organized at ILCAA (Tokyo) and at Kota Kinabalu Liaison Office (KKLO) in Malaysia, an international research office of ILCAA. This is an advanced research project based on the preceding three-term project, the “Multi-disciplinary Study of Islam and Cultural Diversity in Southeast Asia.”
