CC 300 CX: Cross-Cultural Engagement in English Studies (Performing Arab)

3 Credits – Cross-listed with ENGL 360 AX
MWF 1:30-2:20 pm – Professor Potter

Fulfills cultural diversity requirement.

This course examines multiple contested and overlapping traditions in how Arab identity is performed and represented on contemporary stages and screens. These representations will be drawn from works from the Middle East, the Arab diaspora, Orientalist representations, and sympathetic non-Arab representations. Through these works, we will examine the goals and challenges of such representations, questions of what it means to represent ourselves and others to diverse populations, and the ways in which cultural forces affect our artistic interpretations.
