"The Pilgrimage to Mecca" (INT D 425/530), a seminar sponsored by a KIAS. The course explores theories of pilgrimage and ritual, Islamic law, Muslim and non-Muslim travellers’ accounts, and the history as well as economic, artistic, political, social, and religious dimensions of the hajj, the world’s largest annual pilgrimage and a pillar of Islam.
The course consists of an equal number of graduate and undergraduate students, who are each pursuing a substantial research project related to pilgrimage. Student presentations of their final projects will take place on December 4th, from 1:00-3:50 pm, in a location to be announced. This event is open to the campus community and we will have refreshments!
