This special summer study travel course offers a unique experiential understanding of the Arab world, Islam and U.S. foreign policy through the case study of Tunisia, an Arab country in North Africa that serves as the present-day embodiment of the Carthaginian Empire. A unique combination of site visits, lectures by group leader Professor Peter J. Schraeder, and guest presentations by renowned Tunisian scholars will focus on the politics of democratization in the Arab world, the role of women in Muslim societies, Arab perceptions of U.S. foreign policy, U.S. perceptions of Tunisia’s role in the global war on terrorism, and the history of Islam and the Roman Empire in North Africa. We will spend the first 5 days in Tunisia’s capital, Tunis, where, in addition to visiting sites throughout the city, you will take part in joint sessions with English-speaking Tunisian students from the University of Tunis and attend presentations at the U.S. Embassy. The vast majority of this 22-day trip, however, will be spent visiting sites of political, religious, historical, and social significance throughout all regions of Tunisia, ranging from the Great Mosque of Kairouan and the Roman Coliseum in El Jem, to an overnight camping experience in the Sahara Desert, complete with a camel trek, in Southern Tunisia.

SOME TRIP HIGHLIGHTS
• Visit sites of political, religious and historical significance in more than 20 Tunisian towns & cities.
