This subject addresses contemporary Islamic revivalism, and revivalist movements and their influence on Muslim societies. Students will critically examine the concepts of religious renewal and revival, and the notion of reform within the Islamic tradition. The subject will analyse the underlying internal and external factors that sparked the emergence of the revivalist movements. Students will examine significant revivalists from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, including their thoughts and responses to Islamic tradition, modernity and post-modernity. In addition, the subject will explore emergent religious movements in Muslim societies that have developed separate traditions and communities of their own with some global presence.
