NELC 5645 Contemporary Issues in the Middle East
Dr. Alam Payind
This course has developed out of the consensus among Middle East experts that a proper understanding of recent current events in the Middle East requires more than a casual or introductory level of knowledge of the cultural, social, historical, economic, religious and political background of these events. It will provide students with an opportunity to study, through an in-depth interdisciplinary approach, one of the world’s most important and complex regions which, except for its crises, is virtually ignored in the major news media. The course will seek to illuminate the host of factors underlying contemporary issues in the Middle East.
