Description
The Middle East has diverse cultures, religions, and geographies-- from Northern West Africa through the Mediterranean all the way to the borders of central Asia. This course is focused on the study of modern middle eastern cultures presented in texts in English translation. Nonfictional and fictional audio-visual material from the region will be used, in thematic manner, to provide students with a better sense of the diverse cultures of the region. The course is also an opportunity to foster a learning community about this region, in order to reassess stereotypes of the region, as often portrayed in popular Western media. The course material is also meant to help students have a better knowledge of the attitudes and dynamism of these societies. Some themes covered include tradition and modernity, nationalism and globalization, diversity, identity, war and revolution, dictatorship and freedom.
