Charles Weller (History) on “Islamic Contributions to Western Civilization in a World Historical Perspective”

This talk will highlight all the ways — medically, scientifically, technologically, educationally, philosophically, culturally, linguistically, economically — that the Islamic world has contributed to “Western Civilization.” It will emphasize the interdependence of all peoples and cultures historically with a view to promoting mutual understanding, peace and cooperation through recognition of the significant heritage we share. This view suggests a fundamental redefining of the way we understand “the West” and “Islam” and their relation to one another both historically and presently. Co-hosted by the WSU History Club. Common Reading Stamp available.
