MES 1.01 Introduction to Middle Eastern Studies

This interdisciplinary course offers an introduction to the modern Middle East as a field of study, a region, and a site of cultural and artistic production. Starting with the rise of modernity and the effects of European colonialism on regional politics and culture, we will examine the rise of nationalism, authoritarianism, and fundamentalism. We will analyze recent developments in the region, focusing on social media and youth culture, displacement and exile, and gender and sexuality.
