ARAB 464 - Short Stories Fr the Maghreb
This course is primarily a reading course, designed to enable students to read complete stories, to develop in-depth, analytical, reflective and fluent reading skills.  The emphasis will be on self-reliant preparation. Students are expected to gain mastery of the text almost independently, to develop their own responses, and ask crucial questions.  The course is also intended to explore the relevance of these stories to modern Maghribi societies; the extent to which they are part of a larger picture of modern Arabic fiction; and whether or not the Maghrib can claim a narrative voice of its own.
The course will be conducted in Arabic. It will also give students an opportunity to review grammar as well as build up vocabulary.
