This course is an exploration in contemporary and past Muslim homiletics. Our approach is both descriptive and practical. For those who are interested in Muslim oral discourses as an academic subject, the course will offer a chance to learn about the subject from historical and anthropological perspectives. Our examples will be from the United States, Middle East, West Africa, and beyond. For those who plan to be Muslim public speakers, the course will offer an opportunity to develop and practice their skills as lecturers and khatibs.
