New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

COLT 62.10 Women and War in Modern Arabic Literature and Film

Women are central figures in the political upheavals of the modern Middle East. Their images have had a remarkable hold on national and international imaginations. This course examines representations of war and everyday life in literature and film produced by Arab women to understand how armed aggression and violence shape gender (and vice versa). Supplemental readings in history, geography and psychology will provide students with the proper contexts to understand the impact of colonialism, imperialism, sectarianism and decolonization on the region. 

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:LIT; WCult:NW

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.
