November 9, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Please join us for a talk about the religious history of Islamic Central and Inner Asia. Dr. DeWeese’s focus on religious studies have led him to make important interventions in Central History. He is a professor at Indiana University. Come to learn how the Golden-Horde era Islamization legends have shaped the communal identities of Central Asian peoples. Dr. DeWeese’s rich expertise will be of benefit to all students studying topics pertaining to the history of the wider Islamicate world, in particular Central Asia and Russia’s Muslims regions (Tatarstan, Bashkiria, Caucasian republics).
