#WHY HAIFA

What you will study

The course offerings for the July semester are:

Terrorism and Responses-  

Israel Neeman

This course will examine the issue of terrorism as a growing form of political violence into the 21st Century. The last three decades of the 20th Century witnessed a phenomenal growth in terrorist activity around the world. Some groups rose and fell quite rapidly, but others have managed sustained campaigns and have achieved spectacular tactical success, among them the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. We will investigate the causes, methods and responses involved in the ongoing conflict between terrorist organizations and their adversaries.

Contemporary Arab Thought and Culture-

Rana Zaher

This course offers an interdisciplinary overview of the central aspects of contemporary Arab thought and culture. Based on academic research, textual and media resources, and literature from both the Arab world and elsewhere, we will survey several fields relevant to the understanding of the contemporary Arab world’s cultural, social and political affairs. More specifically, the course will offer academic readings and discussions into the Arab world’s historical backgrounds, political agendas, gender issues, identity issues, language varieties, and probable future socio-political scenarios. The course will present ample educational opportunities and experiences that promote analytic skills and insights into another culture and its complexities.
