Israel is a distinct nation, yet there are many Israels. In 1948 the country was founded in conflict and its status is still debated today. Students will learn the many ways that Israel has mattered and to whom, and examine competing interests and criticisms of the country in the context of history. A wide range of texts and films will illustrate diverse experiences and claims; the class will also host guest speakers. Students will write weekly papers about the topics under study, including religion, immigration, the state and Zionism, land disputes, the environment, and contemporary onlookers and visionaries. Those enrolled for 8 credits will also complete a comprehensive take-home exam.

This course will be delivered online. Students will need reliable internet in order to have access to all written texts, films, and pre-recorded lectures, and to participate in twice-weekly zoom meetings.
