Revolutions in the Middle East: Practices and Paradigms

  • 7.5 credits

This course intends to offer both a thematic and a chronological approach to revolutions in the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa from the beginning of the 20th century until today. It aims to go beyond the commonplace describing the recent revolutions as exceptions in the history of the region. At the same time, it aims to show how a range of different events were labelled “revolutions” by different actors and how such a label is a marker of a discursive tradition. A parallel look at Arabic terms and frames will enable a critical look at those constructs.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
