Are you interested in the world's fastest growing economy? Have you ever wondered why politics and religion seem to be inseparable in the Middle East? Would you like to learn more about Japanese film and literature? Asian and Middle Eastern Studies explores these questions alongside the study of Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese or Persian. The Summer School allows participants to get a taste of most of these areas, providing a unique opportunity to explore this diverse and versatile subject. Participants will take part in 'ab initio' language classes, attend lectures across a wide range of subjects and participate in seminar discussions. This course assumes no prior knowledge of any of the languages and is designed to accommodate complete beginners.
