ANTH 12.16 Modern Islamic Politics: From the Muslim Brotherhood to the Islamic State

The most dynamic political forces today in countries across the Middle East are Islamic parties and movements.  From the Muslim Brotherhood to the Salafists to ISIS, we will study the origins and development of modern Islamic political movements throughout the Middle East and broader Islamic world, paying close attention to the ideological and material factors that unite them, and those that set them apart from one another.  We will devote time to considering how Middle Eastern governments have negotiated challenges from Islamic movements, and look closely at the varied influences of the Arab Spring uprisings on local and state-level politics in the region.  The aim of this course is to provide students with a broad context for making sense of the rapid and revolutionary changes taking place across the Middle East and broader Islamic world today.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
