Classic and modern

Arabists at the University of Amsterdam primarily explore the linguistics, literature, culture and political history of the Arab world. Without forgetting classical times, the UvA's Arabists focus specifically on the modern era. In recent years research has been geared towards Arabic dialects, Islamic art history, Arabic fictional literature, and public debate in the contemporary Middle East. The curriculum is mostly based on past and present research.
