0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

This course is how Muslimness (as the way a group of people refer to themselves or are referred to as Muslims) is constructed. This topic is to be explored through present as well as historical dimensions. Students will be invited to scrutinize how the figure of the Muslim is shaped since the arrival of Islam and Muslims to Europe in the 8th century until the present. A survey of topics such as rejection, colonialism, violence, hybridity, negotiation, gender, citizenship, and secularism will be explored.
