We are pleased to announce the publication of AJIS 38:1-2. This issue begins with a substantive editorial by AJIS coeditor Shuruq Naguib engaging the field of gender analysis in the study of Islam. The issue then features four research articles. In the first article, Ahmad Atif Ahmad revisits the Asl/Mabsut of Muhammad al-Shaybani, offering a contemporary reading of the complex relationship between norms and consent in this foundational Islamic legal text. In the second article, Sari Hanafi analyzes the institutionalization of the project of 'Islamization of Knowledge' through a case study of the International Islamic University of Malaysia. In the third article, Rafi Rahman traces the entanglement of race, religion, and culture in the United States -- a complex terrain negotiated by Black Muslims who challenge their marginalization as Muslim Americans in the umma. In the fourth article, Saja Parvizian reconstructs Ibn Rushd's argument that al-Ghazali is an unbeliever for causing others to fall into unbelief. The issue also includes three review essays -- by Omar Anchassi, Tammy Gaber, and Dženita Karić -- and a series of reviews. It concludes with Abdullah Drury's history of New Zealand Muslim discourse and thought.
