About the Project

Project term: April, 2020–March, 2023

From case studies based in North Africa, Central Asia, East Asia, and South Asia, this project plans to examine the modern transition of Muslim intellectuals, with a particular focus on their interaction networks. Many studies on Muslim intellectuals have tended to portray them as the successors of traditional Islamic knowledge and have had a central focus on the official positions of the Ulema or the masters of the Sufi order and the associated networks, sect linkages, schools, political movements, and kinships. While encompassing knowledge from these previous studies, this study also focuses on the political and social dynamics such as nationalism to illustrate the modernity and diversity of Muslim intellectuals in modern Muslim societies.
