ARST 533 - Refugees: Mideast & N. Africa
The course will focus on the displacement, internal and external, of the people in the Middle East. Given the current events in the region, the course will zoom in on certain areas, in particular Syria, Iraq, and Sudan. By analyzing humanitarianism, human agency, and aid, the course is designed to encourage us to re-think how we conceive of displaced people within academic, development, and policy perspectives. We will address issues concerned with citizenship, borders, rights, law, human agency, and history, with the intent to include all of these into our perspectives on how we understand displaced people, talk about them, advocate for them, develop policies around them, and “manage” these crises of refugees in and outside the region.
