AAIMS Conference 2023

July 11, 2023

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 31 July 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,

How to Publish in a Q1 Journal Event

June 27, 2023

Last week on Thursday we held a very successful and lively workshop with Dr Jan Ali and Mirela Cufurovic on the topic ‘How to Publish in a Q1 Journal’. This session was facilitated by Dr Eva Nisa and we had many attend. It was wonderful to see PhD students and ECR’s attend from many different universities across Australia and overseas.

Dr Jan Ali presented on how to publish in a Q1 journal, what is required for authors when choosing to publish in a Q1 journal, addressed the ins-and-outs of the publishing process from the perspective of a guest editor, and explored how to market oneself to a Q1 journal.

Mirela Cufurovic presented on the importance of collaboration, especially for PhD students and ECR’s, the importance of sticking to the journal template when publishing in a Q1 journal, and how to actively and respectfully engage in the editing process upon receiving reviewer feedback.

AAIMS would like to thank Dr Jan Ali and Mirela Cufurovic for their presentation. We have received positive feedback and hope to host more events like these in the future! A big thank you to Dr Eva Nisa for facilitating the presentations and guiding the Q&A’s. It was great to see engagement and interest from the audience.

If you attended the event and would love to leave some feedback, please email AAIMS at info@aaims.org.au.  We value your feedback!

All the best,

Early Career Researcher Book Launch Series

May 17, 2023

If you are an Early Career Researcher (ECR) and have published a monograph between June 2022 and June 2023, AAIMS would like to hear from you!

AAIMS is running a ECR Book Launch series for ECRs who have published a monograph that reflects the multidisciplinary nature of scholarship in Islamic and Muslim studies. AAIMS is committed to promoting scholarly studies of Islam and Muslim societies, and this includes Islam as a religion and the lived experiences of Muslims in Australia and worldwide.

The Book Launches will take place online via Zoom and will be made publicly available for all AAIMS members. The Book Launch series is the perfect way for ECRs to get discovered and increase citations.

ECRs will be asked a series of questions relating to their recent publication by AAIMS secretary, Mirela Cufurovic, with an open-to-public Q&A session toward the end.

If you are an ECR who has published a monograph from June 2022 to June 2023, please contact Mirela at mcufurovic@csu.edu.au.

All the best,

We will miss you, Raihan.

May 6, 2023

We will miss you Raihan. You have been an integral part of AAIMS for three years as our Secretary. Under your leadership and guidance, we’ve achieved much in the time you’ve been with us. But as always with life, new opportunities arise and we must take the road less travelled by. So, we are thrilled to hear that you have been appointed Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at the University of Oxford! This is a fabulous and well-deserved achievement. We cannot wait to see you soar in your new role. We are proud. Thank you for everything you have brought to AAIMS!

Our biggest congratulations,
