SOSC 7376 - Islamic Law: Premodernity to Modernity


Credits: 3

Explores the spectrum of Islamic law, with an analysis of the genealogy of the Sharia from the rise of the caliphate and the postformative period of Islamic law in the 7th century (premodernity), through the rise of the Islamic colleges and schools of law in the formative period (throughout the Middle Ages), to the transformations and destruction of the Sharia system resulting from the advent of colonial modernity. The reformist and extremist attempts at revival are examined as well. May be applied to the following curricular field concentrations: humanities; global studies (non-Western); human rights and social justice; gender studies; and American studies.
