The California Consortium in Islamic Studies (CCIS) aims to spearhead interdisciplinary collaboration among institutions in California for the study of Islam from its origins to the contemporary period.  Based at the University of California, Berkeley, and as a partnership between the CMES and the Department of Near Eastern Studies, the CCIS encourages cross-disciplinary methods and approaches to Islamic Studies, including philology, history, philosophy, art practice, anthropology, art history, religious studies, and ethnography. The CCIS facilitates the co-organization and coordination of colloquia, conferences, courses, workshops, and lectures. It also assists in institutional cooperation and collaborations through faculty and undergraduate and graduate student exchanges. The CCIS also maintains a listserv that captures and disseminates information related to the academic study of Islam in California.
