Understanding the Arab Spring

HIST 111
Fall 2018 not offered
Certificates: Middle Eastern Studies

Beginning in January 2011, ordinary people across the Arab world began to demonstrate for change and the end of political regimes that had governed them for half a century. That revolution is still unfolding in various countries with differing trajectories. The outcomes of its manifestations are far from certain. This course explores the historical background to these developments through the use of selected Arabic novels and feature films to understand the social and political dilemmas that young Arabs faced and that gave rise to their political activism.
