  • HST 673 History and Archaeology of the Middle East

    Archaeology as a tool for historical inquiry is the focus of this course. In this course students will become familiar with the problems and methods of the discipline as they related to the larger questions of Middle Eastern history, including migration and settlement, the impact of war, land use and ecological issues, religion and identity, transformations of the traditional Middle Eastern household, and the relations between local society and the state. Topics covered in lectures and students' projects include the use of textual sources, palaeography, and other methodological challenges; historic preservation and heritage management; legal issues and the politics of archaeology; and museum work. Case studies in the course chronologically range from ancient to Ottoman-era sites, but the focus of the course is the medieval era (Byzantine, Crusader, Islamic). A series of lectures, hands-on work with the Jordan study collection, and documentaries will expose the student to the wide range of disciplines pulled into the service of archaeology and different methodologies. Special emphasis is placed on current fieldwork at Tall Hisban in Jordan and the Northern Jordan Project. Enrollment in this course is strongly encouraged for students interested in joining the Jordan Archaeology Fieldschool as Study Away in the summers. May be taught concurrently with HST 573.
