ARB 230 - Intro to Modern Arab Culture: Dissenting Voices, Liberating Visions (4 Cr.)

(LER-TXT and DIV)(GCR RPP)
In a century of social and political upheaval, Arab writers, critics, visual artists, and filmmakers have produced a compelling body of work that challenges oppressive structures and traditions. In this introductory class, students will engage in a close, contextual reading of a wide array of cultural works produced by some of the most provocative voices from Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Students will examine the ways that gender, class, war, and colonialism inform the poetry, fiction, films, music, and art of the modern Arab world. Readings will include translations of arabic texts and discussions will be conducted in English. Prerequisites: None. Spring. First Offered 2012. Khamis.
