While Jews have resided in the region since the times of Abraham, the history of Middle Eastern Jews in the modern-era is often overlooked. But, Arab, Ottoman, and Persian Jews were deeply involved in the political struggles, musical, literary, and artistic traditions of the Middle East throughout the 20th century. This course explores the lives, culture, and intellectual contributions of Jewish communities in the Middle East who thrived among their Muslim and Christian neighbors during the 19th and 20th century.
