Reflections on the first 25 Years: Publications and Conferences
As early as 1983, the Institute began to publish scholarly monographs and translations to make available to academic institutions and the jamat, contemporary research on different aspects of Islam, Shi'ism and the Ismaili community. Recognized as an important contributor to the debates of the Muslim world, the Institute has also begun to hold a series of high-profile conferences that look at the engagement of Muslims with the modern world. The proceedings of these are published by the Institute. To date, The IIS has published or supported more than 40 monographs, edited volumes and collection catalogues, and as a result has reinvigorated and given a credible and articulate voice to Shi'i and Ismaili Studies in academic circles.
