RELS586 - HISTORY OF ISLAM IN ASIA

This class looks at the history of Islam across South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia with a focus on the last three centuries. Contrary to the popular perception that the Middle East defines Islam, Asia has been the source of some of Islams most important social and reform movements. Students will contrast different Muslim societies over the last three centuries, examine points of confluence for geographically- or culturally-distinct Muslim peoples, and in their writing assignments focus on the history of one society in a wider Islamic context.
