Houghton College Courses
LILIAS TROTTER LOCAL
In collaboration with Houghton College in Houghton, New York, the LTC offers an interdisciplinary approach to Islamic Studies for local students taught by experienced faculty. Students also benefit from engagement with seasoned practitioners living in the Houghton area.
In the Spring of 2021 we will be offering a new undergraduate course at Houghton:
Bombs, Burqahs and Borders: the trauma behind the global headlines.
This course examines militant versus moderate interpretations of Islam. It will cover issues around sharia law and democracy in the context of Muslim cultures. Students will develop appropriate responses to Muslim migration and refugees and expressions of compassion towards those experiencing trauma.
“We at Houghton College are pleased to be partnering with the Lilias Trotter Center as they seek to help the Christian community better understand the realities and complexities of the Muslim world. Hosting the Lilias Trotter Center on Houghton’s campus is a natural extension of Houghton’s longstanding commitment to global engagement for the sake of the Gospel.”
