192. MES 160: Classical Islamic Literature and Civilization

Contact:Mark Pettigrew
Abstract:Classical Islamic Literature and Civilization is designed as a survey of influential literary texts
from the medieval Middle East. ‘Middle Eastern’ and ‘Islamic’ studies are necessarily
interdisciplinary, borrowing concepts and methodologies from comparative literature, comparative
religion, and cultural history. This course places emphasis on literary study techniques of
close-reading, but it is also intended to introduce students to Islamic religious scholarship and
Islamic history, which are the subjects of more advanced classes offered by CMAL and the History
department, respectively.
