A 2016 Course by Elliott Bazzano at LeMoyne College. This course explores "multiple dimensions of Islam, including political, ethical, and mystical dimensions—with attention to demographic diversity and questions of social justice. This course, moreover, will give attention not only to Islam per se, but also how to metacognitively study Islam, including attention to popular media and power dynamics in the dissemination of knowledge. We will approach a variety of texts, people, and concepts, from multiple angles—a process that should prove both challenging and rewarding. Because our approach stems in large part from 21st-century America, we will also consider the implications of our subject on the modern world and America in particular."
