End of Mod 1 Business

As a class, we ended the first module with a bang. I am well aware that the tension in class has as much to do with strong, impassioned personalities as it does a recurring dichotomy: sacred content / musical aestheticization. This issue will continue to recur. I only ask that we all maintain respect for each other in class.

The listening zip has been uploaded. Included are the individual segments of “Madih in-Nabi” (in a separate folder) as well as a composite track to give you a sense of the how they play together as a unified whole.

The reading for the first meeting after Fall Break is “The Humanity Game: Art, Islam, and the War on Terror” (available through Project MUSE) by Jessica Winegar. I have also updated the syllabus on the NewDLE to reflect the proper page numbers for the unit on Judaism.
