Advanced Topics in Arabic Literature
This course is a general survey of modern Arabic poetry spanning the beginning of the 20th century to the present. Students will be exposed to distinctive movements and trends from different parts of the Arab world. We will focus on how poetry reflects major events that shaped the idea of Arab identity in the 20th century through a close study of key samples which trace major social and political developments in Arab society. The class will focus primarily on the basics of academic writing and research in Arabic. Grammar covered in past years will be revised and reinforced. 3 hrs. lect./disc.
