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?
