HIS 3340 - Europe and the Middle East

3 cr
Since ancient times, Europe and the Middle East have had a shared history, a history marked by both conflict and cooperation. This course explores European perceptions of - as well as conflicts and encounters with - the Middle East since the rise of Islam in the seventh century. We examine the political, military, economic, social, and cultural interactions between the two regions as well as the roots of contemporary problems.
