ISITA Early Career Scholars Book Development Workshop

ISITA invites applications for its first Early Career Scholars of Islam in Africa Book Development Workshop, to be held at Northwestern University in spring 2019.

The workshop supports an early-career scholar working in the field of Islam in Africa as they prepare their book manuscript for submission to a press. The selected scholar’s manuscript will be read by at least two senior colleagues in the field and discussed in depth at a workshop.
