THIS IS A PAST EVENT.
Ousmane Kane, Harvard professor of Contemporary Islamic Religion and Society, will speak about his latest book, 'Beyond Timbuktu: An Intellectual History of Muslim West Africa'.
"Timbuktu is famous as a great center of Muslim learning from Islam's Golden Age. 'Beyond Timbuktu' charts the rise of Muslim learning in West Africa from the beginning of Islam to the present day, examining the shifting contexts that have influenced the production and dissemination of Islamic knowledge -- and shaped the sometimes conflicting interpretations of Muslim intellectuals -- over the course of centuries."
