ENG 623

Film/Literature: Middle East,North Africa

The Middle Eastern and North African region has a rich and diverse cultural history. It is also greatly misunderstood in the West because of a long history of colonial interference and political conflict. Students in this course develop an understanding of the region's cultures through critical analyses and discussions of literary texts and films. Some texts are in English translation, and some films are English subtitled. Prior knowledge about the region is not required.
