Description: STUDY ABROAD CAPA IN LONDON ONLY. This course seeks to develop an in-depth understanding of democratic citizenship, identity, and religion among young Muslims in London's East End. It first examines the foundations of participatory democracy and their adaptation to an increasingly de-territorialized world. The course then illustrates the subsequent conflicts with an examination of Muslim migrant communities' confrontation with Western democratic policies. We consider a range of explanations for sociopolitical alienation, and introduce the concept of 'Apartism.' Finally, these concepts an applications are actually encountered on field trips to the East End to look at the history and reality of the discussed socio-political phenomena, face-to-face.
