Second Semester. This seminar examines the condition of women in societies torn between tradition and modernity.  We will explore literary as well as socio-cultural works particularly in terms of the distinction between the archaic Arab/Berber tradition and Islam as a religion, the evolution of the status of women in North African societies, and Western representations of Muslim cultures.  Assignments include in-class reports, presentations, research exercises, and papers.
