103M.001 Fall 2017 Cosmopolitanism: questioning difference, toleration, and conflict

This reading seminar will examine the theme of cosmopolitanism in writing the history of the modern Middle East and eastern Mediterranean (c. 1750-present). A rich literature on cosmopolitanism in the Middle East focuses on some of the region's earliest and most dynamic sites of modern transformation. These transformations had dramatically uneven consequences that continue to shape the region's position in the global order to this day.
