MDES W3901: Empire And Ecology in the Anthropocene: An Environmental History Of The Middle East | C. Primel

M 2:10-4:00 | 3 Points
This course explores the emerging field of the environmental history of the Middle East. It offers new perspectives for rethinking the history of the region in ecological terms, from the effect of climate change on early modern empires, to the centrality of water and hydrocarbons, to the colonial and postcolonial transformations of the 19th and 20th centuries. Prior coursework in the history and/or politics of the Middle East is recommended.
