This course examines the rich diversity of the cultural interactions between Muslims and Jews through an interdisciplinary mix of texts — history, ethography, memoir, and folklore — as well as films and music. We will explore boundaries of culture and religion and consider how identities are defined not just in opposition but also in relation to each other.
