Description: Arab societies are often studied through the lens of cultural, religious, tribal, or kinship relations, with little attention to the role of the state and the economy. This course will examine the intersection of politics, social movements, and economics in the building of nation-states from the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and up to the Arab uprisings.
