RLST-2257EL – Islam in the Modern World

This course will examine the relationship between Islam and the modern nation-state, the place of Islam in the highly pluralistic societies of the modern world, as well as the rise of states founded upon Islamic theology and law. The course will also examine the ” Orientalist construction” of Islam from the Colonial period to the present, including matters such as the so-called ” Islamic Threat, ” as it has been variously perceived, from the mid-twentieth century. Students may not retain credit for both RLST 2255 & 2257. (S) (lec 3) cr 3
