|Certificates: International Relations|
The widespread transnational migration of Muslims to North America, Australia, and Europe and the proliferation of interregional and globalizing Islamic movements raise a number of thematic issues this course will explore: How do Muslims understand differences between themselves and non-Muslims, how do Muslims apprehend and manage differences among themselves, and what transnational and interregional forms of identification and sociopolitical forms of organizing do they develop? We will examine these questions not only in relation to contemporary Muslim movements, but historical precursors as well.
