The Transcultural Islam Research Network (TIRN) seeks to connect international scholars interested in exchanging research findings and engaging in thematic working groups on issues of importance in the Islamic world.
TIRN is a global initiative of the Duke Islamic Studies Center (at Duke University), in partnership with the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill's Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations, and the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (UK).
