This course deals with the history of colonialism and imperialism in the Middle East and South Asia.

We will be studying not only the political and military aspects of that encounter, but also its ideological and cultural ones. Topics touched upon include: Orientalism, imperialism and culture, medicine, law, urban planning, and gender.
