This course focuses on the varied ways that Israeli Jews, Israeli Arabs, Palestinians, and Western scholars have experienced and conceptualized the Arab-Israeli conflict. Unlike a typical history class, we will emphasize texts by novelists, poets, and other literary writers. This approach assumes that literary writers, by dint of their disciplines, can sometimes access human experience with greater nuance, subtlety, and depth, than scholars using academic disciplines.
