Recensies en Artikelen

"Overall, this is a very interesting edited volume trying to discuss both the past and current developments in the field of Islamic studies, and a very ambitious endeavour ... the volume is a useful tool for all those interested in the field of Islamic studies such as students, researchers and scholars. It is also a useful read to journalists and any other persons, who wish to be aware of the state of art in Islamic studies and have a more adept image about Islamic societies." - The Nordic Journal of Migration Research, issue 4/2017, Alexandros Sakellariou

Islamic Studies in the Twenty-first Century

Transformations and Continuities

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
In recent decades, traditional methods of philology and intellectual history, applied to the study of Islam and Muslim societies, have been met with considerable criticism from rising generations of scholars who have turned to the social sciences, most notably anthropology and social history, for guidance. This change has been accompanied by the rise of new fields, studying, for example, Islam in Europe and Africa, and new topics, such as the role of gender. This collection surveys these transformations and others, taking stock of the field and showing new paths forward.
