ARAB 63.03 Arab Cultures in the Americas

Arab Cultures in the Americas aims to introduce students to both: the main sociopolitical issues that affect(ed) the Arab diaspora and the principle literary and cultural trends that emerged from them. This interdisciplinary course will draw on historical, anthropological, literary and cinematic sources to explore such literary trends as the Romanticism of Adab al-Mahjar, as well as such sociopolitical issues as “assimilation”. Since this seminar covers an area that traverses five different linguistic spheres (Arabic, English, Spanish, Portuguese and French) and a time period of almost two centuries, it can neither be exhaustive nor comprehensive. The course will, instead, focus on a select number of countries and specific historical moments primarily in the twentieth century.

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.
