POL 296Z Topic in Political Science: Middle East Politics through Film

Course Description: Assuming that "a picture is worth a thousand words", this course will use fils, background readings and discussion to make the problems, tensions and forces at work in the Middle East today more understandable to the student. Documentaries like "Promises" and "The Fifty Years War", large budget Hollywood films like "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Syriana" independent films like, "My Country, My Country" will enable the student to more deeply explore the countries and complexities of the Middle East.
