As the site of the first protests of the Arab Spring, Tunisia is an ideal site from which to study the twin tensions shaping Arab communities today: tradition and modernity. Students consider the country’s secular tradition; multicultural population; and the recent resurgence of popular Islam and the role of the Islamist movement in shaping the political, social, and cultural landscape of post-revolutionary Tunisia. Students also learn or advance their language skills in Modern Standard Arabic or French.
