Popular Culture, Cyber Revolution and Social Change in the Islamic World: New class for Fall 2015

Many Westerners struggle to understand the Middle East and Islamic culture. These misunderstandings often lead to criticism. To many people in the West, Islam, ISIL, and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict may seem confusing.

In reality, there is a lot of history behind these social, political and economic changes that many do not care to explore or understand.

A great way for students to understand more about these complex topics is to register for a new class being offered at IU South Bend in Fall 2015 called Popular Culture, Cyber Revolution and Social Change in the Islamic World (ANTH-A 385).

This anthropology class explores unique topics including: protest music on the Palestinian- Israeli border, fashion as a form of protest, Islamic comedy and veiled Barbies.

Exploring these topics will help students understand more about the complex and diverse composition of the Islamic world and help eliminate stereotypes and misconceptions.

This class is perfect for the internationally minded or curious student looking to learn more about the current political issues in the Middle.
