Event description

Description

This talk is based on an essay for the upcoming issue of Asian American Matters: A New York Anthology, published by AAARI, on the necessary convergence of Islamic Studies and Asian studies. Prof. Ming Xia will elaborate on his own personal and intellectual journey as a China scholar, discovering how Islam has become so essential to understanding conflict and cooperation in China and the East Asian region. Prof. Xia will also propose an Asian perspective in looking at the securitization of Islamic issues in the West and contemplate on some suggestions for solving the so-called clashes of civilizations.
