Webinar: Teaching Islamic history

Diverse histories in the secondary curriculum in the 2020s

Event Type: CPD

Takes Place: 18th November 2020

Time: 4.00pm - 5.30pm

Venue: Online

Description: Misunderstandings of Islam have impeded global and national cohesion in recent decades. History is well placed to develop better knowledge of the religion and the contribution of Islamic civilisations through the centuries. Currently, Muslims tend to appear in school history as the antagonists in the Crusades, with no discussion of the diverse socio-cultural and political developments in Islamic empires before the twelfth century. The featured enquiry explores Islamic history in the 11th century through the life and work of a political mastermind, Nizam al-Mulk. It is a depth study that can be a short preliminary for work on the Crusades, or a standard enquiry that highlights the background to Persian and Turkic histories, and the rich diverse history of Islamic empires. In this webinar participants will be taken through the processes of developing this enquiry.
