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.
