HIST 379: Gender Trouble in the Middle East: Reference Books

Course Description

This course examines concepts of gender and sexuality in the Middle East – with emphasis on Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan - in the 19th and 20th centuries. It revisits the cases of women in Harems, in the society and in politics in order to re-evaluate the facts and fictions on the concepts of beauty, sexuality and power. It also focuses on the more modern period with analysis on homosexuality, transsexuality and feminism. The course has a historical approach with reviewing some theories on sexuality, citizenship and religious laws (shariʻa.)
