HIST740 - RES SEM IN MIDDLE EAST: SLAVERY MID EAST & AFRIC

Description: 
This graduate seminar will explore the history and legacy of slavery in the Middle East and East Africa, from the 16th century to contemporary societies. We will examine the multicultural and multiracial slave trade that extended from the Ottoman Empire through the Nile Valley, from the Red Sea to the Indian Ocean, from Iran to Arabia. We will read about how slavery was domestic and military, a means of upward social mobility and yet remained profoundly, naturally uprooting. And we will examine the constructions of race that have become the inheritance of slavery and the trade in slaves.
