Teaching Islam

Wheeler, Brannon M., ed.


Despite the importance of Islam in global affairs and the role of Islamic studies in religious studies, little attention has been given to the basic questions of how Islam should be taught. This volume brings together a number of leading scholars of Islamic studies with rich experience in teaching Islam in a diversity of undergraduate settings, from large public universities to small private colleges. Topics addressed include Islamic law, the Qur'an, Sufism, women in Islam, Islam in America, and teaching about Islam through Arabic literature and the use of new information technology. Along with providing practical information about structuring courses and assignments, the contributors examine the place of Islamic studies in the larger theoretical framework of religious studies and liberal arts curricula.
