Lodestone: Empire, Jihad and Crusade in the making of the Middle East
October 30, 2017 @ 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm
Lodestone: Empire, Jihad and Crusade in the making of the Middle East, a 7-part series with Bob Mayer: The social, political, and cultural environment of the modern Middle East rests on a long history of encounters between diverse groups, forces, and ideas. Two of the most important yet least understood ideas that have engaged the imagination of people for centuries are jihad and crusade. This seven-week class looks at the overall history of outside intervention, resistance to invasion, and internal conflict in the regions of Palestine, the Levant, and Arabia, with the intent of clarifying and reaching a better understanding of how centuries of internal and external struggle have shaped today’s Middle East. Mondays 5:45-6:45 p.m., October 2 – November 13.
