Islam and Its World


This course introduces various aspects of global Islamic history and historiography. It interrogates how to define, analyze, and probe the interconnectedness of Muslim societies across time. After exploring a range of theoretical and historiographic models for what scholars have referred to as a 'multi-civilizational civilization,' the 'Islamicate,' and a 'discourse-based world-system,' the course delves into thematic examinations of the transregional links and networks that have worked to connect Muslims across Afro-Eurasia.
