The Center for African Studies in collaboration with the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program at Harvard University hosts events, workshops and conferences to explore the role of Islam in African Studies. One of the foundational conference series in this pursuit is the Islam in Africa Seminar Series. This series aims to trace the rich historical legacy of Islamic culture in Africa, as well as to discuss the implications of Islam in a rapidly modernizing and globalizing African continent.
