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 in it. The course will investigate how those factors are shaping 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.
