Islamic scholars from Bilad-Shinqit (Mauritiana) have been able to articulate and deploy their discursive tradition across the Muslim world since at least the middle of the 19th century.

Exploring the many ways in which Bilad-Shinqit's global religious influence continues to expand, Zekeria Ould Ahmed Salem documents how the so-called peripheries of the Muslim world assert their intellectual and spiritual relevance and consider what these dynamics say about the transformation of Muslim religious authority in the current phase of globalisation.

Event speaker:
- Zekeria Ould Ahmed Salem, Associate Professor of Political Science, Director of The Institute for the Study of Islamic Thought in Africa, Northwestern University
