Readings Seminar in the Body and Revolution in Middle East History


About the Course:

How does the body become a political symbol in various moments of revolt and uprising? What can these experiences and representations tell us about the very possibility of change? What can it reveal about political economy, sex, gender, torture and brutality? This course seeks to answer these questions through a study of the histories of the body and revolution in the Middle East.
