Welcome to the Islamic Studies Research Network

The Islamic Studies Research Network (ISRN) is an educational research network at UNCG designed to promote awareness and understanding of Islamic history and culture in North Carolina and in a wider, global context through a variety of events in the Greensboro area. These include a lecture series, film screenings, and language workshops. The ISRN seeks to provide a virtual and non-virtual forum for scholars and students of Islam to connect and share ideas with each other and create new conversations across academic disciplines and fields of study. Established in 2013 by three scholars in the College of Arts & Sciences at UNCG–Alyssa Gabbay (Ph.D., Chicago), Religious Studies Department; Asa Eger (Ph.D., Chicago), History Department; and Omar Ali (Ph.D.. Columbia), African American & African Diaspora Studies Program–the ISRN is affiliated with HNAC, the Humanities Network and Consortium at UNCG, and funded by a generous grant from the International Program Center Kohler Fund. The ISRN is open to anyone interested in joining the conversation.
