Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture series will provide an introductory overview of the history of the Near East from the beginning of its Christian era in the fourth century, to the aftermath of the fall of the Armeno-Frankish kingdom of Cilicia in the fourteenth. Students will be introduced to the 'national' historical narratives of Armenia, Georgia, Syria and Byzantium as well as a transnational perspective of these narratives. The lectures will take a comparative approach, focusing on the interaction between these groups and their neighbours.

Assessment and permitted materials

Preparation of the weekly readings; attendance and active participation in class discussions; regular short written essays.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Nine short (1000–1500 words) essays to be submitted during the semester (90%); satisfactory participation in class (10%).
