HIST 3880 - East Meets West

5 credit hours
Formerly - HIST 388
This course will use cultural sources to examine the way in which “East” and “West” have been imagined, encountered, represented, and defined over the past 900 years. Focusing mostly on the Middle East and Europe, we will look at discrete moments in history to interrogate the ways in which imagination and experience of the “other” have changed over time. Different theoretical approaches will assist in our interpretations of travel writing and other sources with special emphasis on Orientalism, globalization, and feminist theory. Cross-listed with INST 3880.
