The Thirty-ninth Annual AMSS Conference, held at Chicago’s DePaul
University, continued the association’s tradition of exploring cutting-edge
scholarly issues by examining the notion of Islam’s inherently cosmopolitan
nature, focusing upon its transnational and diasporic dimensions in the age of
globalization. Welcomed by Conference Chair Aminah McCloud of the host
institution, this one-day symposium was rich in the generation and development
of new ideas and concepts and the stimulation of vibrant discussion and
debate among the participants and attendees. The twelve presenters undertook
a concise yet highly concentrated and comprehensive effort to identify,
define, and examine the major debates within an ever-evolving subject of
how diaspora communities face the challenges of an equally unstatic world
and society in which they seek to find space and agency.
