This two-day workshop on the historical and contemporary dynamics of Muslim networks in Southeast Asia is part of the broader comparative exploration of religious networks in Asia supported by a collaborative grant awarded by NUS/ARI and Université Sorbonne Paris-Cité. It is hosted by Irasec (Research Institute on Contemporary Southeast Asia), Bangkok and Payap University, Chiang Mai.

The workshop will combine contemporary ethnographic approaches with comparative historical research to trace the intertwining of transnational religious networks made possible by Islam in Southeast Asia. Contributions emphasize how technologies of mobility and networks that enable circulation made possible the historic consolidation of Muslim communities across the region, and are currently shaping the future of Islam in Asia.
