Asma Afsaruddin, a renowned area studies scholar who teaches modern Islamic thought
At SGIS, our faculty ranks are as wide-ranging as they are deep. They include area studies scholars, anthropologists, scholars of literature or gender studies, historians, lawyers, linguists, political scientists, and sociologists, among many others.
For example, there is a MacArthur fellow who studies the Silk Road and a leading expert on the inner workings of the United Nations.
Our faculty also include former ambassadors and senior government officials, diplomats, and leaders of nonprofit organizations.
