The modern history of the Middle East has been marked by cultural and political transformations. Internal dynamics and external influences have combined to engender competing ideological movements, influencing the recent historical experiences of this religiously, ethnically, and linguistically diverse region. From the end of empire to the rise of nationalism, from uprisings to revolutions, and evolutions in society and identity, the Middle East continues to be made and remade. This course explores the Middle East through the lenses of history, politics, and culture, focusing on the narratives and voices of those who have witnessed and participated in these trends.

Especially for educators of grades 6-12.
