Course 1st semester 2020/2021
The coming semester, starting August 31 2020, Heleen Murre-van den Berg will give three lectures within the course FTR-FIPPSB219: The Dynamics of Politival Pacts in Classical and Modern History in the MENA Region.
The course consists of a historical analysis of the relations between rulers and subjects in Middle East and North Africa. It covers the transformation of the loose, decentralized, multireligious and multiethnic empires to politically centralized and culturally, religiously and linguistically homogeneous nation-states of the twentieth century.
This course is part of a three course module in the Philosophy, Politics and Society bachelor programme. Students can only be admitted if they also take the two associated courses during the same semester. Students who are not enrolled in a bachelor, master, or exchange programme of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious studies or in a bachelor programme of the Faculty of Arts cannot register. Instead, they can apply for admission by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with attached a separate document in which you tell about your current studies, explain which module you want to take and why it is relevant to your studies, and describe what you bring to the classroom.
