Fall 2015 Hebrew Courses
JWST 4670: Israeli-Jewish and Arab-Israeli Peace through Literature and Film
This course explores major themes in Israeli cinema and fiction in the context of the social and historical backdrop of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the painful emergence of a new Jewish-Israeli identity in the shadow of the Holocaust and unremitting warfare. Examining in depth a number of Hebrew films, short stories and novels, all in English translation, the course situates them in the evolution of Israeli cinema and fiction, and considers the problems of turning a work of fiction into a film.
