Synopsis: The goal of this course is to provide students with an improved conceptual and theoretical understanding of the study of Islam and democracy.   There will be a great emphasis on the conceptual origins as well as how they are applied/utilized/manipulated by different groups, movements, and/or states. We will also examine several leading theoretical approaches to questions such as those posed above and draw upon a range of past and present examples, events and case studies in order to evaluate the claims and explanatory power of various theories.
