Understanding the Modern Middle East, a workshop for educators

Monday, September 13, 2021 - 3:00pm to Friday, October 29, 2021 - 3:00pm
online
Sponsored By: 
National Humanities Center

Announced by the University of Pittsburgh

Far too often, the Middle East appears as doubly alien: out of place and out of time. A century of popular culture caricatures, at least two centuries of Orientalist representations, and decades of American military interventions, have all fed into the notion of the Middle East as a turmoil-laden, sectarian, and tribal premodern region. In this course, we will go beyond these stereotypes to look at the historical forces that shaped the region across the twentieth century to understand the complexities of its peoples and societies.

The Arab Legacy in the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America

Monday, August 2, 2021 - 9:00am to Friday, August 6, 2021 - 2:45pm
online
Sponsored By: 
6. The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and the Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University,

The 2021 Summer Institute will engage with current scholarship that spans 1400 years of cultural histories connecting the Arabic-speaking and Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. These eras range from the Arab-Umayyad era in the 7th century, through the Hispano-Arabic period, encompassing the Golden Age of Spain and Iberia, and continuing to contemporary Latin America. Scholars in literature, language, theater, the arts, and other fields in the humanities have looked at particular aspects of this interwoven, centuries-long, transcultural tradition.
