Section Information for Spring 2018

Since antiquity the Middle East and Europe were intricately connected. Large empires, religious wars, cultural traditions, population movements, trade activity and similar developments led to a shared experience that left an indelible mark on what it came to be known as Europe and the Middle East. This course adopts a world historical approach and examines unifying features, interactions, encounters and shared rhythms between these two entities from the rise of Islam until when the European colonial regime was firmly established in the twentieth century. Topics include perceptions of the other, shared spaces and traits, conflict and symbiosis, and diversity and interconnectedness around the Mediterranean.
