Islam in Asia:   Traditions and Transformation

An NEH Summer Institute ~ June 12 to July 7, 2017 ~ Honolulu, Hawaii ~ Hosted by the Asian Studies Development Program

Islam in Asia: Institute Bibliography

All participants in the Institute are expected to read three texts in preparation for the program:

  1. William E. Shepard, Introducing Islam (second edition, Routledge: 2014)
  2. Burjor Avari, Islamic Civilization in South Asia (Routledge: 2013)
  3. Robert Pringle, Understanding Islam in Indonesia: Politics and Diversity (University of Hawaii Press: 2010).

Two other texts are suggested as supplementary readings that participants are encouraged to explore in connection with major Institute themes:

  1. Ebrahim Moosa, What is a Madrasa? (University of North Carolina Press: 2015)
  2. Shahab Ahmed, What is Islam? The Importance of Being Islamic (Princeton: 2015).


This bibliography includes works from a broad range of humanities and social science disciplines that will be useful both in preparing for the Institute and in identifying points of departure for individual research work during the program. The bibliography is divided into three sections. The first section includes works that address a range of contemporary issues that are important for understanding the global dimensions of Islam, as well as works that address the historical diversity of Islamic traditions. This is followed by sections on Islam in South and Southeast Asia.
