Islam and Liberalism

1440G [CRN: 25324]

The social and political upheavals collectively known as the Arab Spring have provoked a new installment in the centuries-old debate about the relationship of Islam to liberal thought. This course explores the philosophical and political genealogies of that debate through the lens of contemporary literature, film, television, graphic art, radio, social media, and the press. Knowledge of Arabic encouraged but not required.
