Islam and Muslim Cultures

RELI 221
Spring 2013 not offered
Certificates: Civic Engagement, International Relations, Middle Eastern Studies, South Asia Studies

This course provides an introduction to Islam and Muslim societies. It familiarizes students with the basic teachings and practices of Islam and examines commonalties and diversity in how Islam has been and continues to be practiced by Muslims, paying particular attention to peoples and places in South Asia and the Middle East. We further examine colonial and postcolonial relations through which the West and Islamic world have come to be understood as mutually distinct and antithetical to one another and as historical and contemporary forms of global and transnational interrelatedness that belie simplistic binaries and oppositions.
