Course Description

Middle Eastern History

HIME 2002

History of the Middle East and North Africa, ca 1500-Present

Spring 2018

As a continuation of HIME 2001 (which is not a prerequisite), this course surveys the historical evolution of the Middle East and North Africa. We begin with the rise of the Ottoman Empire during the 16th century and continue through the development of the modern nation-state systems of the present century. In the process, we examine issues of state formation, class, gender, race, environment, war, and migration as we explore the evolving relationship between the MENA region and the rest of the world.
