Expanding Arab Sky

3 Aug

As I begin taking my first Arabic class, I want to document and share my experience learning more about an ever expanding influence and migrating people that identify as “Arab”. By looking at the history of the Arab region, societies, and people I will uncover its cultural foundations, yummy food, and its growing status in our hyper-globalized world. While looking at Arab history of trade and religion, its cultural passions of food and soccer, I will share what I’ve learned about speaking and writing Arabic in-between. As an Anthropology major, I am easily fascinated by cultures and I hope this research and applying Anthro theories will help understand Arab culture as a whole and its diversity within.

Fe sahetek! Cheers!
