This course will be framed around this central question. In trying to answer the question, students will encounter politics, geography, ethnicity, religion, and history as apertures to analyzing the relentless violence that has defined the country since its inception. Arriving at a comprehension of Afghanistan through many disciplines provides the objective of the course. Understanding the land, its people, and their way of life by looking through a variety of lenses will allow first-year students to sample different studies and build skills for research-based learning.
