Dates: July 3 to August 14, 2018
The Duke Middle East in Europe Term II Sumer GEO program is a six-week, two-course, two-credit global education program that rethinks key concepts and premises linking and dividing Europe and the Middle East. Within an interdisciplinary and interregional framework that includes policy, gender studies, history, migration, film and literature, the program attempts to excavate the legacies of the Middle East in Europe in an inclusive way that aims to do justice to their entanglements. Our goal is to create an undergraduate learning community around historical and current issues that address the history of Muslims in Europe, particularly German Turks and Syrian refugees.
The co-directors of the 2018 Summer program will be Erdag Göknar (PI, AMES, DUMESC) and Banu Gökarıksel (UNC Cultural Georgraphy, Duke Women's Studies).
Those that apply before February 15th will get first priority!
