Leiden Studies in Islam and Society (Brill)

With Brill, LUCIS publishes a peer-reviewed book series, “Leiden Studies in Islam and Society” (LSIS), aimed at an international academic audience.

Leiden prides itself on a longstanding tradition of scholarship and publishing in the study of Islam and Muslim cultures in Western academia. From the very beginning both philological and historical approaches have been prominent in this endeavour, later extending to anthropological studies of Muslim societies. This new peer-reviewed series, Leiden Studies in Islam and Society, a co-operation between LUCIS and Brill, publishes the results of contemporary research on Islam and Muslim cultures by specialists in their own field. In addition to building on this Leiden tradition of combining textual and practice oriented approaches, the series also offers a platform for authors looking for new directions in Islamic studies.
