The Middle East today will be studied as it is reflected in the definitions the world constructs about it, as well as those which the Middle East constructs about itself and about the world. Students will examine Western concepts and definitions about what constitutes the Middle East, and how people and institutions in the Middle East have coped with these definitions; analyse social and ideological movements within the Middle East, and determine their impact on world events; and explore the way Middle Eastern groups and states see their place in the international community.
