Teaching Islam

Edited by Brannon M. Wheeler

Part of the American Academy of Religion's Teaching Religious Studies series, Teaching Islam brings together leading Islamic Studies scholars to offer perspectives on how to teach Islam in an undergraduate setting. The contributors have a wealth of experience in diverse classroom settings, from survey courses at large public universities to small classes at private colleges. The twelve chapters provide guidance for educators teaching topics such as Islamic law, the Qur'an, Sufism, women in Islam, Islam in America, and the use of new information technologies in the classroom. Along with providing practical information about structuring courses and assignments, the contributors examine the place of Islamic Studies in the larger frameworks of religious studies and the liberal arts curriculum. Throughout, they aim to combine practical pedagogical concerns with up-to-date scholarship.

Brannon M. Wheeler is Associate Professor of Islamic Studies and Chair of Comparative Religion at the University of Washington. He received his PhD in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from the University of Chicago. Among his publications are Moses in the Qurʾan and Islamic Exegesis, Stories of the Prophets: An Introduction to the Qurʾan and Muslim Exegesis, and Applying the Canon in Islam: Authorization and Maintenance of Interpretive Reasoning in Hanafi Scholarship.
