On the 21-22 November of this year, come and join us at the wonderful grounds of the University of Western Australia to engage in scholarly discussions, enjoy morning tea, and network with others in the field of Islamic Studies!
AAIMS is thrilled to announce another conference as part of its service to members. Held at the University of Western Australia, the theme of the conference is Islam in a Polarised World. So much has happened since 2001, and so much more since 2021. Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the world, and it is one of the most ethnically diverse and interconnected of faiths, too, allowing Islam to blossom – and sometimes not – in the merging multipolarity of global politics.
This conference, therefore, draws attention to the roles, contemporary place, and future of Islam in the emerging multipolarity in global politics with its accompanying shifting power relations and turbulences. It also draws attention to the multiple forms of cultural, political and religious ‘polarisations’ both in the local and global contexts and what these mean for not just peaceful co- existence but also Islam and Muslims in both Muslim majority and Muslim minority contexts.
Proposals of up to 300 words are welcome and are due by 17 June 2023 to be reviewed on an ongoing basis by members of the AAIMS organising committee.
The conference itself will be held a few months later, in November. If you would like further information about the Call for Proposals, click here.

We hope to see you there!

All the best,
