For this SOS, we will get a deeper understanding of Edward Said's Orientalism. This will mean getting acquainted with his important works in this area: (1) Orientalism, (2) Imperialism and Culture; (3) Covering Islam; (4) The Question of Palestine, and some of his relevant articles. In addition to these, we will also explore some of his major critiques.
Based on these core readings, which will be supplemented with seminars and films, the students will write (a) short papers and (b) develop a longer final project in which Said's concep(s) will be applied to particular settings.
