Course Description:
Conceived as an introduction to the history of the modern Middle
East, this course will examine the political, economic, social, and
cultural institutions and forces that have most profoundly shaped
events in the region.

We will focus our study on a number of significant political,
social, economic and cultural developments and movements, including
(but not limited to): the emergence of Arab and other forms of
nationalism, the rise and formation of modern nation states, the
role of imperialist and colonial powers in the region, regional
conflicts, the emergence of secularist and Islamist political
movements, and the reformulation of class, ethnic, and gender
