Læringsutbytte etter fullført emne

This course is conceived as a series of lectures bearing on a two-fold wide-scoped topic:
religious conflict and conflict negotiation. Every lecture addresses this theme in a
different cultural, chronological and geographical setting, employing specific analytic
tools. Whilst building upon notions, phenomena and terminology already introduced in
the first semester of the master¿s programme, the course brings in new perspectives
stemming from recent research. In that sense, HIS5060 makes the transition to the
second year of the master¿s programme.
Upon completing the course, students are expected to have:
  • the ability to identify core problematic issues in the expression of a religious belief;
  • overall understanding of the stakes involved in religious conflicts;
  • the ability to formulate and test possible historical explanations of the phenomena under study;
  • overall understanding of the history and evolution of Abrahamic religions, both individually and as a group.
