Dr. Matthew Kuiper, assistant professor in Religious Studies, attended the Annual Conference on South Asia, held every year for the past 47 years, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Nearly 800 scholars from around the world who study South Asia attended the conference. Dr. Kuiper presented papers on two Islam panels. “Late 20th Century Da‘wa and The Da‘waology of Sayyid Abu’l-Ḥasan ‘Alī Nadwī” was part of a symposium called “New Directions in South Asian ‘Ulama’ Studies” on Thursday morning. The scholars who attended the presentation provided excellent feedback. The second paper, “Popularity, Controversy, and Indirect Resistance in the da‘wa Outreach of Indian Muslim Televangelist Dr. Zakir Naik,” was part of a panel called “At the Edges of Religions in India” on Saturday morning. This paper was well received and Dr. Kuiper felt that he benefited from having a room full of South Asianists who could provide apposite feedback. While at the conference, Dr. Kuiper also joined an exciting association of scholars called SAMSA (South Asian Muslim Studies Association).
