Since 9/11, the relationship between the Islamic world and the West has become a topic of renewed interest and controversy. From one vantage point, Muslims and Christians have been at odds for centuries, engaged in what some have called a clash of civilizations. But some historians have questioned that interpretation. While Christians and Muslims have experienced much violence and tension, they have also managed to coexist for long periods of time and to engage in fruitful exchanges. This course examines how Christians and Muslims interacted with one another in the pre-Modern Mediterranean World (i.e., pre-1800). (ESPIH/GP)
