INTL 253 - Comparative Muslim Cultures

Cross-Listed as  
This course examines the cultures of three globally influential Islamic civilizations: Arab, Persian, and Indian. We will explore pre-Islamic frameworks, and engage diverse primary Islamic political, intellectual, and spiritual sources and recent scholarship. We’ll ask, what (if anything) is essential to all Islamic societies? What varies? What of interactions with neighboring religions and traditions? And how have these core traditions extended into today’s North American, French, German-Turkish, East or West African, British, and other forms of Islam? Offered most years. Prerequisite(s):   or   (4 Credits)
