HISTORY 181B: Formation of the Contemporary Middle East

This course examines the formative historical developments that have helped shape the post-1798 Middle East. In particular, this course will study the region's modes of integration into the capitalist world economy; the shift from Ottoman to European hegemony and the subsequent superpower politics; the formation of the nation-state system with the displacement and violence it has involved, especially against minority ethnic and religious groups; the ideological rivalries for regional hegemony; class and gender politics alongside other subaltern identities; and finally, the dynamics of the Arab Spring.

HISTORY 281J: The Road to Global Jihad: From Radical Networks to Militant Islamism

This course traces the historical development of Islamically-oriented armed networks without theologizing or essentializing their nature, organizational structures, activities, or violence. We will cover the scholarly studies on militant organizations such as Egyptian Jihad, Al-Gama'at Al-Islamiyya, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, IS(IS), Hizbullah with their sectarian, ideological, and strategic diversity. The trajectory of militant Islamism as various offshoots from earlier global radical Muslim networks will be of critical focus. Basic jihadi texts and historical surveys and monographs on organizations will form the major components of the readings."

HISTORY 284E: Contemporary Muslim Political Thought (HISTORY 384E)

This course aims to provide an intellectual history of contemporary Muslim political thought. It presents post-nineteenth century Muslim contributions to political thought. It is designed as a survey of some major thinkers from the Arab world to Iran and Southeast Asia, from Turkey to North America, who sought to interpret Islam's basic sources and Islamic intellectual legacy. Our readings include primary texts by Tahtawi, Tunisi, Afghani, Rida, Huda Sharawi, Qutb, Shariati, and Mernissi among other prominent figures. We will analyze recurring ideas in this body of thought such as decline, civilization, rationality, ijtihad (Islamic independent reasoning), shura (deliberative decision-making), democracy, secularism, Muslim unity, khilafah (caliphate and vicegerency), freedom, equality, and justice. We will discuss their current significance for the ongoing theoretical debates in Muslim political thought, Muslim intellectual history, and comparative political theory.
