About the Centre

The Carleton Centre for the Study of Islam (CCSI) seeks to promote the study of Islam and Muslims, with particular emphasis on Islamic thought and culture and in full recognition of the expansiveness and diversity characteristic of Islam’s intellectual and spiritual traditions. Under the guidance of its distinguished international advisory board and affiliated Carleton faculty, the CCSI supports a variety of academic platforms and fora, namely public lectures, conferences, seminars, workshops, reading groups, book launches, and film screenings, in order to accomplish its goals.
