Description

This course explores the social and cultural history of Arab societies through the lens of gender. We will cultivate a critical knowledge of Orientalism, colonialism, and global inequalities that is important for a careful and nuanced understanding of the different roles gender and sexuality have played in the representation of men and women living in Arabic speaking countries. We will begin by discussing the framing of categories of gender within western cultural and social productions of knowledge about the ‘Orient’ and try to delineate the various perceptions that have characterized our images of an Arab/Muslim “other.” In an attempt to critically engage with and complicate these perceptions, we will then read/view and discuss interdisciplinary scholarship and film, focusing our attention on early Islamic, Ottoman, colonial, the relationship between national and Islamist movements and gender, as well as the gendered politics of human rights discourses.

Course Requirements:

This upper-level course is reading intensive and assignments consist of weekly short reading responses and a longer final research project.

Intended Audience:

International Studies Majors and Minors

Class Format:

Thirteen themed modules explored through readings and lectures.
