Arab-Israeli Conflict through ­Literature Since 1917

January 9, 2019 at 7:45 pm - 9:15 pm

Jan 9-Feb 27
Instructor: Arie Zmora
Cost per class: $54 Member / $100 Public (scholarships available)

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.
