Welcome to Avicenna!

Avicenna: The Stanford Journal on Muslim Affairs is a student-run journal founded in 2011 at Stanford University. As a non-sectarian, independent publication, Avicenna exists to portray Muslims not as silent objects but as knowing subjects, from the inside rather than the outside. Published in print and online, it aims to maintain a brave and academic agora where members of diverse communities, from different cultures, beliefs and ethnicities, can critically examine issues related to the Muslim world.
