Section Information for Fall 2017

The scriptural and traditional texts of Islam, particularly the Qur’an and Hadith, have generated a rich intellectual history of commentary, criticism and analysis. Even as scholars seek to understand them as products of the particular historical contexts in which they emerged, Muslim thinkers and activists continually reappropriate and reinterpret these texts to address new social contexts and challenges. This course introduces, at a graduate level, the foundational texts of Islam; considers different scholarly approaches to this literature; and examines the application and significance of these texts in contemporary Islamic discourses.
