Classes I want to take:


-Milestones in the Zionist-Arab Conflict 1881-1949

-Introduction to Islamic Civilization

-Economy, State and Society in the Middle East

-The 1979 Iranian Revolution: A Thirty-Year Perspective


-Selected Topics in the Geography of the Middle East

-Ottoman State and Society: Themes in History and Historiography

-Confluence of Cultures in Andalusia: Study Tour - Spain:

The course will deal with the history of the Muslims in Spain and their relations with the Christians and Jews. We will visit the mosque of Cordova and Medinat al-Zahra, which is close by, sites in Sevilia, Ronda and Alhambra. The course will include a series of lectures that will deal with political, social and intellectual history of the Muslims and their Christian and Jewish neighbors. It will also touch upon, to a limited extent, the fate of Muslims in modern Spain and Europe.

I've gone to Cordoba and Grenada in Spain this summer and saw the Alhambra and the mosques you're talking about. Beautiful places!
