Understanding the Arab Spring

HIST 111
Fall 2013
Section: 01  
Certificates: Middle Eastern Studies

Beginning in January 2011, ordinary people across the Arab World began to demonstrate for change and the end of political regimes that had governed them for half a century. That revolution is still unfolding in different countries with differing trajectories. The outcomes of its various manifestations are far from certain. This course explores the historical background to these developments through the use of selected Arabic novels and feature films to understand the social and political dilemmas that young Arabs faced and that gave rise to their political activism.
