Dr. Jamillah Karim's Blog
I am a professor of religious studies but an anthropologist at heart. This explains my blog title. I am fascinated by the way in which we understand and live Islam based on our different cultural locations. Sounds like a cultural anthropologist, right?
My blog begins with my experiences in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I arrived here a week ago. How did an African American Muslim girl from the ATL end up in Southeast Asia?! Well, that's one of the perks of being Muslim in the global era.
