This course looks to the historical use of protests and collective action as a prism through which to examine and explore the history of Israel/Palestine. Starting with the 1929 Palestine Riots, students examine how various forms of protest tactics, from everyday acts of resistance to violent uprisings, are used to achieve societal demands and fulfill the aspirations of the different sectors that make up the social fabric of Israeli and Palestinian society. Themes explored include calls for social justice, subversive cinema, migration politics, queer activism, and ethnic inequalities.
