The Christians in the Middle East

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

This course is about the Christians in the Middle East from the appearance of Christianity through the Arab Spring. . In light of the recent developments in Iraq and Syria, this course’s aim is to discuss (and overcome) the idea of endangered minorities by especially focusing on their cultural, political and social contributions throughout the centuries, and on how contemporary Christians have looked at their own history, their identity(ties) and presence in the region. Besides, the course will also explore current Muslim discourses on Christians and the modalities of religious coexistence.
