Brief Summary of ProposalThrough the medium of native Middle Eastern film, the course will consider how people in the Middle East view themselves and are viewed by the outside world. The course will make use of films both by Westerners about the Middle East and by Middle Easterners who reside either in the region or in the West. Exposure to these depictions not only will serve as a corrective to many entrenched stereotypical ideas about Middle Eastern culture, but also will lead students to think more critically about their own culture and values and to appreciate the importance of cross-cultural understanding in today’s world.
