Islam in Africa has become an important and increasingly vibrant sub-field in Islamic Studies, attracting numerous extremely talented students who
are conducting fine studies that have great impact in all fields in the humanities and social sciences. Dozens of books are published yearly including
through major university presses, and so the goal of Critical Perspectives in the Development and Dynamics of Islam in Africa lecture series is to
provide a platform for the discussion of cutting edge research in the field of Islam in Africa and to tap into the best of such new work for Africanists
and Islamicists at all schools at Harvard. Every academic year, the Islam in Africa lecture series brings authors of newly published books and
advanced Ph.D students to campus to discuss their work.
