AMES 41.13 Jews and Arabs: Entangled Histories

This course looks at the interaction between Jews and Arabs throughout history. We examine Jewish history, culture, and social life in Middle Eastern and Islamic lands from the advent of Islam to the emergence of modern nation-states in the Middle East. Along the way, we will make stops in medieval Islamic Egypt, Andalusia, the Ottoman Balkans, the Arabian Peninsula, and other places in which Jewish communities thrived and left records. We pay special attention to the influence of the broader forces that shaped Jewish history and social life throughout the Middle East, and the ways in which Jews and Arabs interacted at the social, cultural, economic, and political levels in diverse contexts and time periods.
