    PANEL: Islam in Africa in global context: African engagements at the intersection of the local, the transregional, and the global

    Benjamin Soares (University of Florida)
    Mara Leichtman (Michigan State University)
    Shobana Shankar (Stony Brook University (SUNY))

    This panel centers around understanding Islam in Africa at the intersection of the local, the transregional, and the global. It focuses on African engagements with Islam at these different scales and how such engagements help to shape imagination of the past, present, and future. Such cultural and political imagination can have important implications for African Muslims’ writing of history, their modes of belonging, shifting affiliations, and aspirations for the future.
