In this course, students will explore the complex and little understood history of the relationship between the Arab Middle East and the United States. We will look at the role missionaries, oil engineers, scholars and diplomats played in forging the relationship. We will pay particular attention to how the Arab-American community has attempted to influence perceptions of the Middle East and government policy. Students will be active learners in this course. We will be reading early twentieth century primary sources as well as scholarly and popular texts. Students will define and explore areas of particular interest and share them with the class.
