This course introduces students to Arab American Studies within a transnational context. It will highlight the relationship between Arab Americans and their countries of origin. Students will explore ideals and practices of gender among Arab Americans; Arab American engagements with racism, assimilation, and Americanization; and representations of Arabs in the U.S. media. Central to this course will be a focus on Arab American contributions to the arts, with an emphasis on literature, spoken word poetry, film, and comedy. This course culminates in a study of the impact of September 11th on Arab American communities and Arab American community responses to the post-September 11th historical context.
