The Center for the Study of Science in Muslim Societies (SSiMS) is focused on investigating the roles and receptions of science in Muslim societies, with the goal of understanding how social, political, historical, and religious factors influence—and are influenced by—the methodologies and findings of science.
Our Focus and Approach
Our focus is on Muslim societies across the world, including diaspora or immigrant communities in the West.
The Center takes an interdisciplinary approach that includes the perspectives of history, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, and science education.
