Religion 278: Islamic City, Spring 2017

Professor Rizwan Zamir, Davidson College

Engaging a wide variety of sources, and through an exploration of ‘spaces’ (e.g., house, mosque, palace, bazaar, madrasa, garden) within traditional Islamic cities, students will discover for themselves various aspects of Muslim societies, cultures and institutions.  The course involves collaborative projects, creative research, and introduces digital design.
