Everyday Life in Muslim Societies

In this class we will address common stereotypes of Muslims and Islam by examining the varieties of Islamic practice followed by average Muslims in large Islamic communities located on three different continents. Students will learn about everyday beliefs and practices in such areas as Islamic ritual, social relationships, gender roles, Muslim sects, mystical beliefs, the role of politics, and the impact of Islamic law on Muslim societies. Our focus will be upon common Islamic beliefs and practices rather than upon extremist groups and radical beliefs.
