ARAB 370 - Arab and Muslim Voices Post 9/11

Credits: 4
An investigation of Arab and Muslim literary and cultural responses to their position in the global community. After the 9/11 attacks and subsequent world events, Muslim communities worldwide are faced with the question: “If Islam does not condone terrorism, why are Muslims not speaking out?” By looking at the work of writers, intellectuals, musicians, and comedians, and how they construct their own narratives, primarily in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East, students will explore questions of voice, violence, gender, and individual and collective identity.
