REL 770 / HIST 770: Islamic Interconnectivities

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.
