INDS 430  Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar An                    3 credits
          Interdisciplinary Study of Modern Iran's          
          History,                                          

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          examines  Iran and its  place in the world
          over  the  last century. We  will begin by
          studying  the main historical and cultural
          roots  of the modern Iranian identity: The
          great  Persian empires, Islam, Shiism, and
          a  blend  of  post-colonial  populism best
          referred  to  simply  as  "revolutionism."
          Next,   we   will  make  our  way  through
          20th-century   Iran,   focusing   on   the
          country's  political, economic, religious,
          social, and cultural evolution.  Among the
          major  developments to be  studied will be
          the  constitutional revolution of 1905-06;
          the   processes   of   modernization   and
          secularization     under     Reza     Shah
          (1921-1941);  the 1951  nationalization of
          Iran's     oil     industry    and    1953
          U.S.-supported coup against Prime Minister
          Mossadeq;   the   reign   of  "the  Shah,"
          Mohammad  Reza Pahlavi; Iran's role in the
          Cold War; the 1979 Islamic revolution; and
          the  Iran-Iraq  war.  We  will  then focus
          intensively         on        contemporary
          post-revolutionary Iran, leading up to and
          including   its  current  aspirations  for
          great-power status and nuclear weapons, as
          well as its contentious relations with the
          United States. Students should be prepared
          to  read a substantial  amount of material
          from   different   disciplinary   sources,
          engage  actively  in  seminar  discussions
          using  an interdisciplinary framework, and
          write short analytical essays and a longer
          research paper. Crosslisted with POLI 489.
