Political Islam and the Middle East (3) This course explores political Islam in the Middle East, examining the phenomenon as an ideology related to the larger tradition of Islam, but also on a grassroots level as a social and cultural movement. Students examine primary sources by Islamic activists as well as ethnographic studies from within the movements. Particular attention is paid to critically assessing whether and how political Islams are compatible with or challenge Euroamerican understandings of democracy, women's rights, liberty, and modernity. Topics include the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt and the Nahda party in Tunisia, as well as comparison to movements in Iran and Turkey.
