AMES 25 Unveiling the Harem Dancer

The historical legacy of Orientalism continues to perpetuate a stereotypical image of the exotic female dancing body. We will consider the Oriental dancer as an entry point to examine contexts of the colonial encounter, global circulation, and postcolonial conditions. We will also explore issues of gender and sexuality in Arab Islamic culture and address questions about the social agency of the female dancer. Materials include theoretical texts, travel accounts, films, and performances.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
