Few places around the word are blessed — or burdened — with the diversity and intensity that characterizes Israel. Israeli literature and culture since 1948 has dealt with issues confronting a new nation-state, a state created with a utopian vision but also burdened with a legacy of war and amazingly rapid social change. From the War generation of the late 40's to the new postmodern voices of the 21st century, we will explore the best and most important writers and trends of Israeli literature and culture, examining how they responded to both the dreams and the reality of modern Israel. We will also watch and discuss Israeli films from this period.

All texts are in English translation. There will be an additioanl section for students who can read Hebrew texts in the original.
