The University of Georgia History Department supports a developing research and teaching agenda for the Middle East. Faculty members have published in internationally recognized journals on a broad range of topics relating to the political, social, and cultural history of the modern Middle East. Areas of interest and expertise include the history of colonialism and anti-colonialism in the Arab world, the social history of Middle Eastern working classes, the development of sectarian conflict in Iraq, Iran, and the Persian Gulf, and the cultural politics of revolutionary movements.
