Description

How can the study of the body help us learn more about the politics, culture, and society of a region? This course explores the development of different social, symbolic, and physical aspects of the body in the modern Middle East. From orientalized and racialized representations to revolutionary and religious ones, we will look at attitudes towards the body in order to examine ideas about class, race, gender, sexuality, empire, and nation. Together we will read and learn from guest speakers and a wide selection of interdisciplinary research. They will act as guiding points as we interact with primary sources that include photography, film, written text, interactive platforms, and interviews. You will learn tools and methods for engaging with these multimedia sources in order to construct nuanced narratives on the body within the spatio-temporal configurations of the modern Middle East. Since this is a writing course, you will do this through a range of writing activities meant for you to exercise academic prose and historical practice. Prior knowledge on the Middle East is not required.

Intended Audience:

First-year students; students who need to meet the FYWR.
