MAIS-640 The Middle East

The course introduces students to the study of the Middle East in the light of broader religious, historical, cultural and political perspectives. Special attention will be paid to the role of religions in the region. Transformation of Islam/religion in different political settings is a significant aspect of the course. Beginning with a general overview of Middle East history, politics and religion, the course moves to examining the relationship of religion and politics in four major Middle Eastern countries: Egypt, Iran, Turkey and Israel.
