HIST 394 - Food in the Muslim World

Explores Islam and the Muslim world from the angle of food culture. Food will provide an interdisciplinary approach to the Islamic religious traditions and the Muslim cultures from the rise of Islam to the present, and from North Africa to South Asia. We will be covering the scriptural traditions, legal systems, ethical values, literary output and cultural exchange within and without the varied Muslim communities. A hands-on experience is necessary to grasp the material so a kitchen lab will form an integral part of the curriculum. See department chair.
