This exhibition explores the diversity of Islamic heritage of Asia past and present, the spread of religion along the ancient Silk Road, and how religion itself was affected by the wide variety of cultures and traditions found in Asia.
Misc. Coverage * Outreach
"Inclusiveness is one of the Library’s core principles, and this commitment to diversity can be seen in our new interactive exhibit exploring the history and influence of Islam in Asia. The exhibit, “Islam in Asia: Diversity in Past and Present,” can be found outside the Asia Reading Room in Kroch Library, and at least one class plans to incorporate the resources in the exhibit into coursework. Please reach out to the curator, Ali Houissa, with questions, or just stop by. The exhibit will be on display through April." --Letter to Cornell faculty by Anne R. Kenney, Carl A.
