This course concentrates on historical and contemporary issues in Southeast Asian Islam. As a background, students will be presented with a general outline of the history and central teachings of Islam, before studying the process of Islamisation within Southeast Asia. It will examine the ongoing interaction between external Islamic influences and local political and religious traditions, analysing the extent to which this produced thinking and institutions which were distinctive to Southeast Asia. Particular attention will be paid to recent issues such as sharia-isation in Indonesia and Malaysia, gender discourses, militant Islamism and terrorism, liberal Islamic thought and the Islamic insurgencies in southern Thailand, western Burma and the southern Philippines.
