Asia is central to global Islam’s development as a religious, social, and political reality, according to Chiara Formichi, associate professor in the Department of Asian Studies.In a live, virtual Chats in the Stacks talk, Formichi discusses Islam and Asia: A History (Cambridge University Press, 2020), her recent book that explores how intertwined histories and cultures have shaped both Islam and the Asian region from the seventh century to today, influencing different spheres from politics to the arts. Rich in illustrations, maps, insets, and primary sources, the book serves both as an in-depth exploration and as a primer for those curious about Islamic history.
