A social, cultural and political history of the Islamic world between 600 and 1650.
Today’s news agenda is dominated by stories connected with Islam: this course provides the student with the vital historical background and context they need to understand and interpret events. It offers the opportunity to reach beyond popular stereotypes and develop a fuller understanding of the role that a multitude of societies played in shaping the development of the religion of Islam and the culture of the Muslim world.Muslim society is rarely explored in the English-speaking world as a culture in its own right. It is more often considered in relation to the development of either European or Asian civilisation. This course adopts a new focus: while it will certainly explore the interaction of Muslim society with Christian Europe and Hindu India, it will bridge the gap between east and west by making its focus the Muslim world itself.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
