Course Description:

This course offers students an introduction to the cultural, religious, and political history of Jews in the lands of Islam. Jews have lived among Muslims since the days of Muhammad in the seventh century; indeed, the Jews and their traditions are central in the Qur’an itself. Because the course covers more than thirteen centuries of interaction, cohabitation, and (at times) conflict, it necessarily paints in broad strokes, but it pauses along the way to consider a number of important case studies. The end of the course explores the impact of Zionism and the Arab-Israeli conflict on the Jews of the Middle East.
