ARIC 100/1300 - Arabs and Muslims Encountering the Other (3 cr.)



Description
Surveys Arab-Islamic history from the perspective of the development of the socio-cultural self and its encounters with the Other. Pays special attention to inter-cultural and inter-confessional relations and to how these informed the development of Arab-Islamic identities from the birth of lslam to the colonial period. Major themes include travel and intercultural encounter, polemic, conversion, the treatment of religious minorities, and the colonial subject’s view of the West.
