The core faculty members of the Alwaleed Islamic Studies Program (AISP) come from academic departments and centers from across Harvard University. They are deeply involved with AISP activities, lecture widely and teach courses focused on the wider Islamic world. Some serve as members of AISP’s Steering Committee.
In addition to the core faculty, there are dozens of other faculty who teach and do research in subjects related to the global Islamic world from disciplines as diverse as arts & architecture and global health. While they are not as deeply rooted in the Program’s activities, these scholars play an integral role in promoting a broad, interdisciplinary understanding of Muslim societies and cultures. In an ongoing effort to deepen scholarly understanding of global and transnational Islam, and to better educate the public about Muslim cultures and societies, our faculty lecture widely and often in both academic and public settings.
