Topics may include the place of Islam in the Core Curriculum; Christian-Muslim dialogue; the state of Islamic studies in North America; teaching the historical origins of Islam; teaching Islam and contemporary affairs; teaching turning points in the history of Islam; understanding Islam in theological perspective, and teaching Western perceptions of Islam/Muslim perceptions of Western societies.
