RZS-CASIS Short Course: Islam and the Malay World – A New Age in the Malay-Indonesian Archipelago

Could a single religion bring in significant changes to the identity of a society?

There are many ways one could benefit from understanding the experience of other cultures in history and see the effect of religious influences to a society, marking a significant change to their worldview. Islam came to the Malay World without war and conflict. It is a unique case of a peaceful islamisation of the indigenous society on its own.

Join us for our Short Course under the History & Historiography series conducted by RZS-CASIS in collaboration with Himpunan Keilmuan Muslim (HAKIM) for a 4-Day session exploring the right method and sources of determining the meaning of new age in a society through a religious influence.
