HIST 5.02 Introduction to the Modern Middle East

This course introduces students to the politico-cultural and social cosmos of the Ottoman Empire from the 1400s until its disintegration in 1918. It focuses on the intricate, conflict -ridden and sometimes violent encounters among the categories of religion, sexuality and social status. Drawing on scholarly discussions, primary and secondary sources, legal texts, and case studies, this course examines the anxieties, contradictions, and conflicts that defined the societal margins of the Ottoman Empire.

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.
