Credits: 3

Explores Israeli politics, society, institutions, and political practice from the distinctive perspective of the development of Israeli national identity and sub-group identities.

Examines the main political junctions in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and connects them to their reincarnations in contemporary times to include analysis and study of the politics, the popular culture, and the daily life of Israelis and Palestinians living in Israel/Palestine. May be applied to the following curricular field concentrations: human rights and social justice; global studies (non-Western); humanities.
