Islam and the West

July 23 - July 29, 2017
Hillsdale College

As one of the world’s great monotheistic religions, Islam has been worthy of Western notice and study since its inception. In recent years, with the rise of Islamic terrorism and increased Islamic immigration to the West, greater understanding has become an urgent necessity. This seminar will investigate Islam from historical, religious, and political perspectives, as well as consider Islamic art and architecture.
