LBRL 362 - Islam and Muslims in the Indian Ocean World

Explores cross cultural contacts in the Indian Ocean world from East Africa, Arabia and the Persian Gulf to South and Southeast Asia, and the history and role of Islam and Muslims from the 14th century to the present. Focuses on texts by or about Muslim travelers—Sufis, pilgrims, scholars, and merchants—and their creation networks, identities, and “Muslim spaces”, to show that some aspects of globalization have a long history in the Indian Ocean.
