Our ISLAMiCommentary web site, managed out of the Duke Islamic Studies Center in partnership with the Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations at UNC-Chapel Hill, will cease production on June 30, 2016, with the end of the grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York that has supported it since its beginning.
