Credits: 3
Times: Monday to Thursday, 2:50 pm to 5:10 pm
Dates: 2 July to 29 July 2020
This course addresses recent political and social changes in the Mediterranean area, with a focus on the eruption of political conflicts and the causes behind them. In recent years, a number of Mediterranean states have experienced a struggle between secular and religious forces over political power, and we will look at this struggle via a series of case studies from the three main regions of the Mediterranean area: the Middle East, North Africa, and Southern Europe. While stressing a comparative perspective, regional variations will be addressed throughout the course. Rather than proposing ‘the Mediterranean’ as an essential unit, it will be discussed how different discourses (political and cultural) are part of the creation of the Mediterranean as an ‘area’. For example, in the context of the Barcelona process, the Mediterranean area is imagined as a security zone and as a European area of policymaking. The approach is multi-disciplinary, combining political science, sociology, history, and anthropology.
Pre-requisites: HST 201 or HST 202 or a lower level Political Science or International Affairs course and Junior or Senior standing or permission of the instructor.
