This course is about how ordinary Muslims negotiate varieties of religious experience in their everyday lives. We will examine ethnographies set of three countries — Egypt, Indonesia and France — that illuminate in contrasting ways the intersections of Muslim religiosity with a plethora of hot-button transnational issues, including bio-ethics and medical technologies; preaching, media and globalization; and secularism, gender and religious minorities. In addition to delving into specific ethnographic contexts, we will consider how we can think about “Islam” as a historically situated religion, a moral and legal tradition, and an object of academic study. Throughout the course we will discuss ISIS and both popular and academic debates around how to understand its use of violence.
