Course Description

This course considers the nineteenth- and twentieth-century experiences of the predominantly-Islamic populations of the former Ottoman Empire and contiguous territories. This lower-division lecture course introduces a critical interaction between different ideas about what is 'modern.' Modernization suggests certain ways of thinking about education, urbanization, economic development, and representative government for residents of the Middle East. In studying these peoples' cultures, social movements, and identities, we can recover flexibility for ideas about what is 'modern' in the region.  Course number may be repeated for credit when the topics vary.
