教書

還有十天,我要到大學教書,心情既高興又緊張。高興是,終於可以學以致用,把學過的東西貢獻出來;緊張是,怕教得不好,浪費了這個機會,以後也沒有機會再教了。

十三周的課程,每周上三堂,兩節講授、一節導修。兩小時多,其實可以講很多很多東西,要連續講兩小時,一點也不容易。

暫時仍在最後準備的階段,但我想我會教的,應該有這些東西:

Fundamental block
1. Basic introduction of the Middle East
2. Islam and Politics

Studies of countries
3. Turkey: The legacy of Ataturk
4. Saudi Arabia: Rentier state
5. Iran: Khomenei Revolution
6. Lebanon: Sectarian Politics
7. The birth and politics of Israel
8. Egypt, Syria and Iraq I: the role of military in politics
9. Egypt, Syria and Iraq II: the studies of dictatorship

Studies of other Issues
10. Israel Palestinian Conflict I: the struggle of Palestinian
11. Israel Palestinian Conflict II: The peace process and recent development
12. Democratization in the Middle East
13. Other Issues: Media, China, Hong Kong and the Middle East, Yemen
14. Egyptian Movie, Terrorism and BBQ

最終的次序可以有變,當中可能有些合併,導修內容和考試評核方式,我仍未定。若果可以教得好,修讀完這個課程,肯定看得懂和分析,中東發生的事情。

Hi, nice to reading your blog, i'm Pete's friend (in fact his ex-colleague at PCCW), TingTing, i am currently staying in Israel.. i wish i could join your lecture and learn more more more about middle-east!!!! I came here for 3 months and so amazed by everything here.. also very confused by the political and historical situations too...

Sounds very interesting! You got a scholarship to study there?

So, you can get my contact from Pete, keep contact!

haha, I am not resourceful, compared with my classmates and scholars in UK, I am nothing actually.

Good luck and enjoy!
