Advanced Historical Literature – Middle East

About the Course:

This seminar engages the history and historiography of the twentieth century Middle East through a critical approach that disrupts fixed concepts. By exploring the work of political theory, literary analysis, and historical scholarship, we will study the notion of modernity as a staging of rather than a stage of history. This course aims to dismantle the history of domination in the Middle East as the model of what is “normal” through the close study of the ways in which ideas, structures, and disciplines constituted the modern.


No pre-requisites have been entered for this course.
