According to Migraine-George, Faruque is ideal for the position due to his international renown in the field of Islamic Studies. “We were looking for someone who is thoroughly knowledgeable in the Islamic intellectual tradition and in Qur’anic Studies and with a strong scholarly record, but also with a record in community engagement and an interdisciplinary background,” says Migraine-George. “Faruque fits all these criteria and brings outstanding experience and expertise to UC. “He earned his PhD in Islamic Studies from Berkeley and his groundbreaking book ‘Sculpting the Self: Islam, Selfhood and Human Flourishing’ will be published by the University of Michigan Press in 2021.”
