Inhoud
Early Exit option for international exchange students (5 ECTS)
 
Exchange students who are required to return to their home university before January, are allowed to choose an Early Exit option for this course. The Early Exit option means that students can finish the course before Christmas break, receiving 5 ECTS for the course. Students must make arrangements with the course coordinator at the start of the course.

This course analyses major issues in the contemporary history of the Middle East, from the late 1940s through to the 2011 Arab uprisings and the later rise of the so-called ‘Islamic State’. Does it make sense to use the state as our main unit of analysis when studying the region? What links together Israel and its alleged arch-enemies in the Gulf? What do we talk about when we speak of ‘totalitarianism’ in the Middle East? In this course, we will look at the history and politics of the Middle East after 1945. We will focus on key political developments that shaped the history of the region, including the rise of political Islam, the onset and global reverberations of the Arab-Israeli and Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the unintended consequences of Western interventions in the region.
