Race and Sexuality: This course will explore how the concepts of race/racism and sexuality are understood and constructed within Israeli society. Students will learn and engage with basic terminologies and frameworks used to explore concepts of masculinity/femininity, gender identities, cinematic representations of racial constructs, and feminism as applied in Israeli society.

Some questions explored include:

  • In what ways does gender intersect with race, ethnicity and sexuality?
  • How do Western understandings of race play into the development of divisive movements such as the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement?
  • What is the role of race and racism in Israeli LGBT and Queer Jewish movements?
Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand how learning about one society’s racial structure can produce useful knowledge about ourselves.
  • Know the complexity and variety of differently gendered lives and livelihoods throughout Israel.
