From the late 19th and early 20th century through the present day individuals in the countries that we are studying this semester have been grappling with the challenge of how to reform their societies—how to improve the way people live at home, and to gain external recognition, either through self-rule, respect for independence or through an enhanced international position.
Some leaders and potential leaders sought to do this through developing secular nationalist ideologies, others through the interpretation or reinterpretation of religion, and still others through a combination of the two. And for any of these strategies to be successful—for the leaders to gain or retain power—there had to be a significant portion of the population that shared their values.
Using the assigned readings discuss the ways that prominent political figures in both Egypt and Iran constructed their ideologies (including the influence of the past history of their peoples), and (including by using the films and fiction assigned) how society received these messages (which groups supported them, which opposed them and why).
– Use Tanim Ansary’s “Destiny Interrupted: The World Through Arab Eyes”
– Use Kim Ghatta’s “Black Wave”
