Since its establishment in 1948 until today, the State of Israel has unsettled, constantly shifting borders. At the same time, borders are rather difficult to cross in Israel/Palestine. This course will introduce students to the diversity of Israeli society and culture through the theme of borders and border crossing. Borders, borderlines, and border crossing will be explored in diverse arenas: geo-political, ethnic, linguistic, religious, gender, economic, and the intersections between them. Students will read and analyze a wide range of literature and cultural products (film, music, art, architecture, food) by Arabs and Jews, Mizrahi and Ashkenazi, religious and secular, natives and immigrants who express and examine these complex issues in their work.

Class Format:

Two 90-minute meetings weekly
