History and Culture of the Syrian People


Course description

The tragedy unfolding in Syria, described on an almost daily basis in the media, has resulted in the largest refugee crisis since World War II. On Vancouver Island, some one hundred Syrian families have been welcomed and are now settling into the community. This survey course will provide you with information about these new neighbours, their faith, customs, and history. We will explore the following topics:

  • Ethnicity, Religion and Languages in the Middle East
  • The founding and “message” of Islam
  • The Arab Kingdom and the Abbasid Empire
  • The Ottomans to World War I
  • Colonialism and the post-colonial era
  • Women in Islam
