CalendarWe host a variety of events throughout the year, including the following:

Co-sponsored with the Alaweed Professorship of Contemporary Islamic Religion and Society at Harvard Divinity School.
ISITA sponsors multiple talks each quarter as part of the Program of African Studies' “Lunch and Learn” speaker series held on Wednesdays at noon during the academic year.
ISITA Perspectives brings leading scholars of Islam in Africa to Northwestern at least once each quarter for dialog with each other and the audience about their recently published books. Each symposium features two authors and one or more Northwestern faculty discussants.
ISITA's Early Career Scholars of Islam in Africa Book Development Workshop supports early-career scholars working in the field of Islam in Africa as they prepare their first book manuscript for submission to a press. The first workshop took place in May 2019. Details about the next workshop cycle and competition are not yet available.Learn more about the first workshop.
