The Middle East: Modern Conflicts

Often, conflicts seen as contemporary political disputes have deep historical roots; this course examines several major modern Middle East conflicts in their historical contexts. Focusing on the modern history of Iran, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and role of post-9/11 U.S. foreign policy in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the other on-going Arab revolutions, the major aims of this course are for students to understand the fundamental forces driving modern conflicts in the Middle East, the importance of using multiple perspectives to understand these conflicts, and the considerations that determine U.S. influence in the region.  Students will critically examine textbooks, graphic novels, documentary films, daily news websites, debates, guest speakers and even an interactive video game.

This class may or may not be available in 2014-15 depending on teacher availability and student interest.
