Course summary

The study of the Middle East has grown into a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural academic area of specialisation, attracting strong interest for political, cultural and social reasons. Your studies will benefit from academic developments in fields such as globalisation, cultural identity, diaspora and migration studies, gender studies, and post-colonial studies, all of which are based on techniques in the analysis of evidence across several Middle Eastern languages, and uses original sources in English translation as well as secondary sources in English. Through the interplay of disciplines and theoretical approaches, the course will enable you to undertake balanced study of the history, literatures, cultures and religions of the Middle East in broad and complex ways. Core course units and a wide range of optional units will equip you with a thorough and sufficiently specific yet language-independent understanding of the Middle East, alongside key contemporary methods in the study of culture, religion, literature and history.It is also possible to get to know the basics of more than one Middle Eastern language, or to study one language all the way through until the end of the second year.
