THRS 315: Islam in Paris
Do you want to see Mona Lisa in the Louvre? Snap photos in front of the Eiffel Tower? Sip coffee in a Parisian café? Ride a boat on the Seine? Take THRS 315 in Paris!
France is home to six million Muslims, the
largest Muslim population in Western Europe.
Learn the religious foundations of Islam, its rituals, law, and history. Since we will be in
Paris we will discuss immigration and
integration of Muslims, issues like public prayer, halal meat, the hijab, the mosque, and
the perceived threat of Islamization of Europe.
Find out how a strong Muslim presence impacts
French society and politics, and what effects
living in France have on second, third, and
fourth generation Muslim immigrants.
We will visit the Islamic art exhibit at the Louvre, the Mosque of Paris, and Institute du Monde Arabe, among other sites.
