ARBC 6611 - Literary Communication      

Literary Communication in the Arab Islamic Civilization

This course studies the various modes of communication and dialogue between civilizations through literature in all its shades and patterns. It also aims to unravel literary patterns as literature has always been a pillar of civilization. Moreover, it deals with the link between the luminosity of literature in any civilization and the might and power that such a civilization possesses. To convey such ideas across, it draws from history, particularly instances of coexistence between civilizations and nations with a view to introducing a renewed vision or a future strategy for the role of literature in the dialogue of civilizations.

ARBC 6618 - Women in Classical Arabic Lit      

Women in Classical Arabic Literature

This course studies the traditional literary concepts on women and beauty in the Arab and Islamic Civilization. In many parts of the Arab and Islamic worlds today, people are not aware of the rich literary and linguistic heritage that exists on such issues although for centuries Arab and Muslim scholars have written numerous manuscripts about such aspects. Moreover, other literary manifestations exist on the subject such as poetry, prose, novels that need to be examined and studied by contemporary Arab and non-Arab students of Arabic.
