HIST 375 Islamic History and Civilization

Spring, Fall

Major Requirement: History of Africa/Middle East, Period prior to 1500 This course is a thematic introduction to many of the events, figures, texts and ideas that have been central to Islamic thought and identity over the centuries. While we will study many major historical events, particularly in the early centuries of the Islamic era, the course is not intended as a comprehensive historical survey; instead, we will focus on some of the pivotal moments that have been most meaningful in the eyes of later generations of Muslims. (Course offered in alternate years.)
