INAF-397 Muslim Women & the West
Spring for 2016-2017
The seminar will provide an overview of the study of the history of the encounter between Christians and Muslims over fourteen centuries, a history that has been marked by conflict and cooperation, diatribe and dialogue, hatred and tolerance, hostility and personal friendships. It will introduce the students to historical writings on particular periods perceived as having a special impact in shaping the current relationship between Muslims and the West such as the Crusades, Andalusia, European Imperialism, Orientalism, Christian missionary activities, women's liberation, and Muslim revolutionary movements. It will explore Muslim literature on Christianity and the growing Islamophobia.
