Sahar H Ramadan

Egyptian Arabic is the spoken dialect used in daily life in Egypt, the vernacular of Arab cinema and media, and the lyrical backbone of most modern Arab music. It is, thus, central to the cultural life of Egypt and the wider Arab world. Given this wide diffusion of Egyptian Arabic, learning to communicate in Egyptian Arabic opens doors across the Arabophone world. In this course, students with no prior Arabic language experience will build oral proficiency using instruction in the forms and vocabulary of spoken Egyptian, but also through a use of a variety of media, including films, songs, and other contemporary materials. Please note: This class is intended for students with a general interest in Arabic, who did not study Arabic before. It is not open to students who have had prior classroom experience with the Arabic language.

Prerequisite: Not open to students who have had prior classroom experience with the Arabic language.

It is difficult to overstate Arab scientists' contribution to science. A translation movement from Greek, Persian and Sanskrit into Arabic initiated in the eighth century, led to centuries of innovative scientific investigation, during which Arab scientists reshaped science in a variety of disciplines: from mathematics to astronomy, physics, optics and medicine. Many of their works entered Latin and the European curriculum during the Renaissance. In this reading course we will explore some of the achievements and thought processes in premodern Arabic scientific literature by reading selections from several seminal works. We will examine these in the cultural contexts in which they emerged and to which they contributed, and reflect on modern Western perceptions of this intellectual project. Readings and class discussions will be in both Arabic and English.

Prerequisite: Arabic 206 or equivalent

This course is for students who have completed Hebrew 101 or whose test scores indicate that this is an appropriate level of placement. We continue expanding our vocabulary and grammar knowledge, integrating listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Hebrew. We also continue working with Israeli films and internet, particularly for a Karaoke in Hebrew group project which involves learning and performing an Israeli pop song and researching the artists' background and messages for a class presentation.

Prerequisite: Hebrew 101 or equivalent
