Revolution, Violence, and Gender in Modern Arabic Literature

HIS 410/COM 439/NES 440

Info tab content
This advanced undergraduate seminar explores themes of revolution, violence, and gender in modern Arabic literature and culture. Our focus will be on close readings and viewings of novels, poetry, and film. We will also read widely in the scholarly literature on modern Middle East and North African history; theories of revolution, violence, and gender and sexuality; and the relationship between aesthetics and politics. All readings are in English, though students who would like to work with materials in Arabic are encouraged to do so in consultation with the instructor.
