"The course examines the global scope of the ummah and the various contexts in which Muslims find themselves in the contemporary world. At a time when Muslims live everywhere around the world, creating the biggest ummah ever, the “Muslim World” is integrated as never before to global flows from every provenance. The course investigates the transnational scale of Muslim religious movements and identities, and the technological and institutional structures which support them. Students study how Muslim communities beyond the “Muslim World” practice their faith in multi-faith, Christian, Buddhist, or secular societies. The course assesses the place of Islam in the lives of Muslim communities worldwide and the institutions, networks, and movements that sustain and structure them."
