This survey of the modern Middle East will introduce students to major social and political trends in the Middle East during the 19th and 20th centuries, with the bulk of the course focusing on the 20th century. The course will address significant social and political responses to Western influence in the Middle East, including movements favoring elements of Western models (nationalism and feminism), and movements rejecting Western models (pan-Arabism and religious resurgence). No previous work on the Middle East is expected, although NELC/SISME 210 is recommended.
