RLST 3140  Religious Tolerance & Coexiste  (3 Credit Hours)  

Every study of coexistence and tolerance invariably harbors assumptions regarding integration or the lack of integration within a given society. When we speak about Christians, Jews, and Muslims across space and time, scholars must decide how and to what extent these different religious groups raised families, ate, worked, shopped, spoke and died with (or simply alongside) their neighbors. How have Christians and Jews, Jews and Muslims and Muslims and other Americans truly live together? Or did they exist in parallel spaces while spending the majority of their lives apart? This seminar uses autobiographies, religious texts, official reports, memoirs, poetry, fiction and film to explore how different religious groups lived together and apart in the twentieth century, from the Ottoman Empire to the Interwar Polish Republic, Palestine and the United States.
