Women in Classical Arabic Lit

Women in Classical Arabic Literature

This course studies the traditional literary concepts on women and beauty in the Arab and Islamic Civilization. In many parts of the Arab and Islamic worlds today, people are not aware of the rich literary and linguistic heritage that exists on such issues although for centuries Arab and Muslim scholars have written numerous manuscripts about such aspects. Moreover, other literary manifestations exist on the subject such as poetry, prose, novels that need to be examined and studied by contemporary Arab and non-Arab students of Arabic.
