Particular attention is given to the central but often distinct roles that Arabs and Persians (and Arabic and Persian) have played in the spread of Islam and Islamicate culture and society. The relationship of Arabs and Persians with Turks, the third major ethnicity resident in the heartland of Islam, is also explored.

Modern Korean History (3) This course seeks to understand Korea's historical experience of modern transformation from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, with a special emphasis on the post-1945 contemporary era. After a turbulent, humiliating, and subjectively painful experience of modern century, from a unitary Confucian state, to a colony of Japan, and a divided nation, Korea still keeps its own distinct culture, identity, and strong nationalism. By highlighting major events in Korea's modern century, including the opening of the country and the fall of the Choson Dynasty, colonial Korea, and post-1945 division of the country, the course analyzes and evaluates the major historical and socio-cultural themes, concepts, and controversies. The evolution of the historical narratives and interpretations in this modern century is addressed in the discussion. Meets with ASIA-396 001.

The End of the Cold War (3) For almost fifty years, the world was largely defined by the Cold War's ideological and geographic terms. To the surprise of almost all observers, it ended without widespread destruction or loss of life. This course explores the end of the Cold War chronologically and thematically. The course begins by examining efforts at detente in the 1970s and ends with the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, the reunification of Germany, and the breakup of the Soviet Union. The assigned readings and class discussion helps students assess the causes and effects of the end of the Cold War as understood by participants at the time and current observers such as political scientists and historians. Students study the power of personality, examining the roles of U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Students also examine key developments such as ongoing arms control negotiations and the rise of the Polish trade union movement. In addition, students evaluate how culture, the economy, politics, human rights activism, Western ideas, and nationalism each contributed to the end of the Cold War. The course promotes critical analytical thinking about Cold War history and encourages students to think in an international context to develop their own interpretation of the evolution and significance of the end of the Cold War. In addition, the assignments are structured to strengthen students' oral and written communication skills, including those of persuasion, argumentation, and presentation. Meets with SISU-330 006.

The United States and International Human Rights (3) Attention by the United States to human rights abuses has risen and waned. This course explores how concern for human rights has influenced U.S. foreign policy and focuses on questions about the consistency and durability of that commitment throughout the Cold War and in the years that followed the Soviet Union's collapse. It considers how the geopolitical struggle of the Cold War and domestic politics shaped American concern for human rights internationally and examines the challenges of combating terrorism and respecting human rights today. The course concludes with an examination of contemporary struggles to balance morality and adherence to American values with the preservation of national security. The assigned readings and class discussions help students define human rights and assess the American commitment to protect those rights. Students read important accounts by historians, political scientists, journalists, and human rights activists. The course promotes critical, analytical thinking about U.S. human rights policy and encourages students to develop their own interpretation of the evolution and significance of the American commitment to human rights in the postwar years.
