This course explores the dynamic relations between Muslims and Christians in Indonesia, a country with the world’s largest Muslim population. As a society with considerable diversity, Muslim-Christian encounters in Indonesia are not defined by solely religious factors. Instead, social, political, cultural, and even economic factors are intertwined. The course will investigate how those factors shape Christian-Muslim relations in contemporary Indonesia through a combination of lectures, readings, documentaries/movies, and discussions. In the end, the goal is not only to gain knowledge but also to draw insights to manage interreligious relations, especially Muslim-Christian relations, in general, and to build peace and harmony.
