CMPL 277 - Israel/Palestine in Literature and Film

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course introduces students to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as represented in literature and film. We’ll proceed chronologically, beginning with the rise of Jewish and Palestinian nationalisms through the present day, focusing on the Arab-Israeli War of 1948 (otherwise known as the War of Independence to Israeli Jews and the Nakba to Palestinians), the Six-Day War or Naksa, and the first and second intifadas. In doing so, we’ll complicate the notion of dual narratives by considering the experiences of people of marginalized and hybrid identities. Each work of art we explore will be paired with historical and theoretical readings.
This course is cross-listed with JWST 277


This course is appropriate for new students.
