Stanford Institute on Islam

The Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies and Center to Support Excellence in Teaching at Stanford invite middle- and high-school instructors (teaching grades 6-12) and community college educators to participate in the Stanford Institute on Islam, a 3-day workshop that explores how the study of this global religion can be incorporated into the teaching of History, Social Studies, Current Affairs, the Arts, and related subjects.  This year, the Institute will explore the theme of Muslim Intersectionalities by examining questions of race, gender and identity in Islam in a variety of global contexts.  

Join Stanford scholars in exploring how you can deepen your students’ understanding of Islam and Muslim societies. Establish a critical background on concepts, practices, traditions of Islam.  Explore strategies to expand your students’ appreciation of the diversity of Muslim societies and cultures, and develop ways to integrate the study of Islam into your curriculum.
