Open Access Journal: Sociology of Islam & Muslim Societies Newsletter

Sociology of Islam & Muslim Societies Newsletter
The Sociology of Islam and Muslim Societies is a scholarly network for all scholars and across disciplines such as sociology, political science, history, international studies and religious studies. The major aim of this network is to study and understand the sociological aspects of Islam and Muslim Societies. In this context, the concept of Sociology of Islam has been borrowed from Dr. Ali Shariati, whereas the concept of Muslim Soceities was borrowed from Ernest Gellner's argument. We believe that these two scholars represent core aspects of current changes in Islam. Both scholars rejected the Orientalist understanding of Islam and Muslims. Therefore, we take a similar approach in this network.
