"This is a simple calendar conversion utility that displays a given date according to four different standards: Gregorian, Julian, Islamic, and Persian (i.e., Solar Hijri). Change the date in any of the tables below, then click the corresponding "Calculate" button, and the equivalent date will appear in the other three calendars. Additionally—and perhaps most helpfully, for historians of the later medieval and early modern Persianate world—this page will indicate the animal year in which the given date falls. (See the "Notes and References" section below for further information on this and other arcane points.)This is a simple calendar conversion utility that displays a given date according to four different standards: Gregorian, Julian, Islamic, and Persian (i.e., Solar Hijri).

Women of Islamic Studies

Women of Islamic Studies
Women of Islamic Studies is a crowdsourced database of women scholars who work on Muslims and Islam. This ongoing project is in its beta version. Once sufficient data has been collected I will partner with a university for a more stable home.
Women of Islamic Studies is intended to contest the prevalence of all-male and male dominated academic domains, such as editorial boards, conference panels, publications, guest speakers, bibliographies, books reviews, etc. and provide resources to support the recognition, citation, and inclusion of women scholars in the field of Islamic Studies. Anyone who identifies as a woman, gender non-conforming, or non-binary is welcomed on the list. The scholars listed come from a wide variety of disciplines and perspectives. “Islamic Studies” is meant to be as inclusive as possible, meaning anyone whose expertise is related to the understanding of Muslims and the Islamic tradition, and intended to demarcate a disciplinary boundary. Please feel free to list any relevant scholars who work on Islam and Muslims in any capacity. The crowdsourced contents are made possible by many contributors. Please add to our list and help spread the word.
Women of Islamic Studies is inspired by Women of Ancient History. Thanks to Sarah Bond for the support.
