Course Details

This course will go beyond a generic understanding of Islam to look at the internal diversity in the religion as well as issues of debate between denominations and groupings. It will focus on Shia and Sunni Muslim identities, but also touch on a wider set of different interpretations of Islam and sub-groups, bearing in mind the demographics of British Muslim communities. As well as traditional sects and movements, the course will also cover controversies that are emerging in modern British Muslim life.

Dilwar Hussain is founding Chair of New Horizons in British Islam and Research Fellow at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, University of Coventry.

Timothy Ashworth is Woodbrooke's Biblical Studies tutor. He has a particular interest in what the Bible reveals about early Christian experience.
