The primary objective of this unit is to introduce students to the broad history of the Middle East from ancient times until the end of the Second World War. Additionally, an exploration will be undertaken of how Western impressions of the Middle East are shaped by cultural relativism and popular culture. The first three weeks of the unit will examine our preconceptions of the region and discuss the concept of Orientalism. The remaining weeks will provide an historical chronology of the Middle East. Emphasis will be placed upon the region as the cradle of civilizations, the birth of the three great monotheistic religions and the deepening involvement of Western powers over the centuries and clashes of political ideologies this has brought about.
