This course is funded by the Social Science Research Council as part of an initiative to support public engagement by academic experts on Islamic traditions and Muslim societies, made possible through a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is an independent nonprofit organization devoted to the advancement of social science research and scholarship. Founded in New York City in 1923 as the world’s first national coordinating body of the social sciences, it is today an international resource for interdisciplinary, innovative public social science.
