About the Journal
DINIKA: Academic Journal of Islamic Studies is a peer-review journal in the field of Islamic studies, devoting to provide an intellectual niche of new Islamic trends in society and beyond, published twice a year (January-June and July-December) by UIN Raden Mas Said Surakarta, Central Java, Indonesia.
Two decades or more, in the global scheme, Islamic studies have been enforced to take broader paradigms from dogmatic-theology to popular-religious. Islamic studies is not merely discussing on sacred corpus only, but everyday life of Islam also. In academic space, this field has increasingly been an intersection -if not a contestation- across disciplines, such as political science, anthropology, sociology, history, economics, media and cultural studies.
