LLS 1320 - The Middle East: Myth Versus Reality

Credits: 3 hrs.
We will examine some popular images of the Middle East and the intersection between culture, politics, and religion to answer the following questions. What is the link between perceptions and reality? Does the modern history of the Middle East demonstrate that religion inevitably leads to political and ethnic conflict? Can common culture act as a unifying factor in the context of religious division? What is the role of institutions and ideologies in developing political affiliations and nationalist identities? Can peace be achieved in the Middle East?
