Description

In this course, we examine the Arab-Israeli conflict as it is portrayed in both Arabic and Hebrew/Israeli literary traditions — poetry, short stories, novels, novellas, literary essays, and personal accounts — and film, looking at how adversaries portray each other, how mutual stereotypes are created and reinforced, or broken down as the case may be, and how the conflict has shaped the development of these respective literary and filmic traditions in substantially different ways.

Complementing courses which examine the Arab/Israeli conflict from political and historical approaches, this course offers the unique perspective of examining it through the literature produced by parties to the conflict.

Readings may include works by Emile Habiby, Amos Oz, Ghassan Kanafani, A.B. Yehoshua, Khalil Sakakini, Sahar Khalifeh, and others, as well as a selection of Palestinian and Israeli films pertaining to the conflict.
