New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020


MES 17.07 Radical Islam: Jihadis, Salafīs, and Radical Reformists in the 20th and 21st Century

Many academics, including Muslim academics, assert that Jih\\u0101dism is “not religious” or “not really Islamic.” Nonetheless, members of these movements see themselves sincerely as the vanguard of the “real” Islam. This course is about how violent reformists fit into the Islamic heritage, and, as importantly, how they fit into global sociological, religious, and political tendencies characteristic of the modern world. Are these movements’ “Islamic;” are they “modern?” Why are they simply irrelevant to most Muslims?

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:TMV; WCult:NW

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
