HIST 3234 - The History of Islam in Southeast Asia (3 Credit Hours)


Lecture Hours: 3 Lab Hours: 0
After a brief review of the founding, basic beliefs and practices of Islam, the students will be introduced to the history of Islam in Southeast Asia From its arrival through the present. Included will be how Islam “fit” into the region’s existing religiosity as well as its political-economic life. The arrival of Europeans by the 1500s introduced an important new factor into the region which had religious as well as political-economic dimensions, resulting in local resistance and religious as well as secular nationalism. After World War II, with the emergence of new and largely democratic states, the relationship of the state and Islam became a more complex issue and continues to play a significant role in the national lives of the region. Students will develop advanced proficiency in history through reading and writing assignments as well as individual research project and essay examinations.
