Mona Hassan: "Longing for the Lost Caliphate: Transregional Imaginaries of State and Muslim Community"

Mona Hassan is Assistant Professor of Islamic Studies and History at Duke University. Her research explores the intersections of religion, culture, politics, and gender. She has published extensively on how Muslim female scholarship has been formed and articulated in shifting socio-political and cultural contexts. Her current book manuscript examines Muslim engagement and entanglement with the notion of an Islamic caliphate following the Mongol destruction of the Abbasid caliphate in 1258 and the Turkish nationalist abolition of the Ottoman caliphate in 1924.
