The West & the Rise of Islam

November 21, 2016

Your are cordially invited to access a webcast of a seminar hosted by the Family Research Council on Tuesday, November 22nd, at Noon (Eastern).

By the mid-twentieth century, the Core Curriculum of required courses that was inherited from some distant past had become an artifact that most administrators continued from habit, but with no thought to content. The history of the West was usually taught in required courses that attempted to survey the history of the West without examining why that history is unique. Sixty-five years later, the United States faces a rising Islam, and American college students are taught nothing about the West and its conflict with Islam from 700 to 1592. Something was lost that we must hope will be regained. Some programs attempt that recovery:

  • Carthage College’s Western Heritage program, Kenosha, Wisconsin.
  • The Phronesis Program at the University of Houston.
  • The Institute for the Study of Western Civilization at Texas Tech University.
  • Campion University (Australia), Centre for the Study of the Western Tradition.

That’s about it. Higher education is now dominated by multiculturalism and programs that emphasize global citizenship, while the civilization of the West is neglected.
