PPR340: Islamic Politics
Tutor: Amalendu Misra
The aim of this module is to introduce students in the inner dynamics of political Islam and the attendant challenges that comes with it. It is a module designed as much for students with little or no background in Islamic Politics, as it is for students who already have some grounding. This module is built around an examination of the principal debates, features, and manifestations of Islamic politics in the twentieth century.
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (1.5 hours) and seminar (1 hour) weekly.
