Orientalism and the Historiography of the Other

Jun 2005

A brilliant class from a brilliant man. I have never seen a professor so deftly steer a conversation to include all sides of a debate and all aspects of a problem than Prof. Khalidi in this course. i don't know if he's still teaching it, but if so, take it. The books we read were provocative and interesting, and Khalidi cracked them open with ease. The only problem I had with his class was his reliance on student presentations - a common tactic in high level history seminars - which I hate in all forms. What do I care what you have to say? I dont - but I do like listening to Khalidi. Take this class.
