We've all probably heard the words "Ottoman Empire" and "sultans" at some point in our lives, but the forming of the modern Middle East is skipped over for the most part in history classes. This class will take a historical approach to examining how the Middle East evolved from the Ottoman Empire to the borders we see on world maps today. You will also be introduced to what colonialism has to do with forming borders, and how this causes conflict in the Middle East today.

Bring one of the following:
"Spa day" (bubble bath, nail polish, face mask, etc)
*email classes@tradeschool.coop to volunteer at this class (this is your barter!)
*have your own goods or services to offer? arrange your own barter by emailing your teacher
A blanket (dark green or blue preferably)
Anything antique or vintage
Baked goods
Home/dorm room decor
New/lightly used camping or hiking gear
