CROSSING BORDERS: EUROPE LOOKS (AND WRITES) EAST
This course examines European literary and cultural representations of the Orient. Studying documentary accounts written by travelers, imaginative texts, visual representations, and critical studies of the orientalist tradition, we explore the assumptions that underlie western discourses on people, lands, and cultures beyond its eastern borders.
