Past Projects

At the heart of the center's work are a wide range of research projects that reflect our faculty's diverse interests and innovative scholarship. In its first few years, the center was awarded several large grants to support research by its distinguished faculty members. The center has been awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Carnegie Corporation of New York, El-Hibri Charitable Foundation, and British Council and Social Science Research Council.

In the spirit of Islam's rich intellectual and scholarly traditions, these projects represent multiple disciplines and explore a wide range of topics, both historical and contemporary, relating to Islam and Muslim societies around the world. Resources developed from these grant projects include academic books and journal articles, curriculum and teaching resources for schoolteachers, and online materials intended for the broader public.
