Interdisciplinary Seminar for Islamic Studies (ISIS)

The Interdisciplinary Seminar for Islamic Studies (ISIS) is the only academic forum at the University of Michigan that engages students and faculty who are interested in the study of Islam and Muslim societies in an interdisciplinary and cross-regional conversation. Following our inception in the winter term 2010, ISIS has grown to include a large number of both student and faculty participants on our list-serve. They represent a wide range of departments and programs including American Culture, Anthropology, Architecture and Urban Planning, Asian Languages and Cultures, History, Law, Middle Eastern and North African Studies, Musicology, Natural Resources and Environment, Near Eastern Studies, Political Science, Romance Languages and Literatures, South Asian Studies, and Southeast Asian Studies.
