SISME 213 : From Jerusalem to Seattle
Discovering the Middle East in our Midst
 
Welcome
 
to the website of the SISME 213 course “From Jerusalem to Seattle : Discovering the Middle East in our Midst.” This course is taught during the Summer Quarter 2008 Term C at the University of Washington in Seattle as a part of Discovery Seminars.
 
On this website you will find videos, slideshows, as well as audio and written notes prepared by the students based on materials covered in the course and information collected during our visits to the local religious and ethnic Middle Eastern communities. These contributions should help us learn from each other about the Peoples and Cultures of the Middle East while playing with modern technologies and practicing scientific research methods.
 
I hope you will enjoy the website and learn a lot through it.
