Description

This course examines Arab-Jewish relations from the late nineteenth century to present in a contested land--a land known as Israel to some and as Palestine to others. It traces the development of this century-old relationship and how it has been shaped by issues such as subjectivity (who are we), perception (how are we seen), power and powerlessness, immigration, and violent conflict. Our discussions illuminate the political, cultural, and religious background against which Arab-Jewish relations have developed and transformed. We cultivate a critical appreciation for the historical complexities of the dynamic relations between both parties by examining the different narratives provided by Jews/Israelis and Arabs/Palestinians. Throughout the course, we scrutinize historical sources that describe both conflict and peaceful coexistence in the “Holy Land” and the Middle East. Course requirements include weekly comments on the readings, two longer papers, and a final exam.
