ANTH 3400 - Anthropology of the Middle East

Anthropology of the Middle East provides students with an understanding of the complexity of contemporary life in a specific world region that has been shaped by millennia of overlapping empires that fostered shared cultural, political, religious, and economic relationships. The region was fragmented during the past 200 years by the rise of competing nationalisms, post-colonial politics, social movements, and religious revitalization. This course explores anthropological approaches, theories, and methodologies utilized in recent ethnographies of the Middle East, as well as the production of knowledge in the construction of place, identity, and agency by its peoples and the scholars who have studied them.

Prerequisite: ANTH 1102
