Fall 2013
Section: 01

This course introduces students to aspects of the cultures, politics, religions, and economies of the modern Middle East. What is everyday life like for millions of Middle Easterners? Why is an "us vs. them" dichotomy facile and reductionist? How has the region been formed and shaped by colonialism, political Islam, democratization, oil, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, revolution, and war? What conditions and circumstances led to civil war in Syria and to regime change in Egypt?
