Course Proposal Details for - Christian-Muslim Relations and the Relationship Between the
World of Islam and the West (Course code not assigned)
School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures
This course will investigate two related, but nevertheless distinct, topics,
namely the relationship between Christianity and Islam, and the
relationship between the World of Islam and the West. There will thus
be a focus on specifically religious thought and a focus on wider
historical, political and social issues, in both the medieval/classical and
modern/contemporary periods. Topics investigated will include
scriptural foundations (Bible and Qur'an), later Christian thinking about
Islam and Muslim thinking about Christianity, how Muslims and
Christians have interacted over the course of the centuries, and, in the
modern world, the relationship between the West and the World of
Islam in political, social and cultural terms, in both Muslim-majority and
Muslim-minority contexts. Students will thus come to a better
understanding of the similarities and differences between the two
traditions in terms of belief and practice, the different attitudes each
tradition has had toward the other in history, the different factors
involved in the contemporary relationship between the World of Islam
and the West, and the prospects for dialogue and better mutual
understanding in the future. This course is jointly taught with
undergraduate students.
