This advanced Hebrew literature and culture course will focus on recently-published texts that deal with the most pressing dilemmas of Israeli society in the twenty-first century: race and ethnic relations; economic inequality and social protest; and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. We focus particularly on controversial works, such as banned or censored novels, and their surrounding debates. Students also discuss twenty-first-century literary styles and genres, paying attention to the multiple registers of Israeli Hebrew. All the course materials are taught in the original.

The time slot for this seminar will be determined in consultation with the participants and according to their schedules

Course Requirements:

Weekly writing assignments; two longer papers; discussion questions; Israeli news updates
