WHAT: Explore education systems and practices in Muslim societies and the Muslim diaspora with scholars across fields and disciplines who will share their research on education and its implications for global societies by attending this 6th annual symposium. Join us to foster and disseminate groundbreaking research on the role of education in individual and societal change in diverse societies.
The terms “Muslim” and “education” are defined broadly to be inclusive. By “Muslim,” we mean any self-identifying Muslim individuals, institutions, communities, and societies and their roles in experiencing and shaping education as well as researchers interested in Muslim societies. “Education” includes the pedagogies, practices, and policies, as well as the conditions and status of human development and curriculum as they relate to Muslim societies and communities. The symposium draws proposals by researchers from across fields and disciplines (e.g., education, human development, history, political science, public affairs, religious studies, gender studies, and sociology) in formal and non-formal as well as governmental and non-governmental sectors.
