Courses in Middle Eastern and North African Studies (Division 440)

491. Proseminar on the Arab World. (3). (Excl).
This course is a Proseminar, aimed at both graduate students and at upperclass undergraduates with a good background in Middle Eastern History. It will cover selected aspects of the cultural and social history of the modern Arab world. Past proseminars have dealt with issues in the impact of colonialism, of urbanization, and of religious revivalism. Typically the class will read a monograph a week for the first half of the course. The second half will be devoted to the presentation and class discussion of students' projects. All students will produce a 20 page term paper, which will represent 90% of their grade (class participation will account for the other 10%). The average reading for the course will be around 150 pages per week, and the writing requirement is rigorous, requiring the production of a rough draft for critique and then a final polished version of the paper.
