In this course, we will study the long, entangled history that links Italians and Muslims, in the Italian peninsula and beyond. We’ll start with the history of Sicily as Muslim state and Italian trade with Muslim cities throughout the Mediterranean. The course will cover the Crusades in the eastern Mediterranean – as conflict and as a period of intensified cultural and commercial exchange. And we’ll study contemporary topics like the migration crisis that has brought hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants to Italian shores; mosques in Italy; and Dolce & Gabbana’s new collection of hijabs and modest clothes for the modern Muslim woman.
