ONLINE: One of the lesser understood aspects of Israeli society is what life is like for its many non-Jewish communities. This course will give an overview of these groups and survey the evolving relationships between the major groups and the Israeli state. Communities covered include the Israeli Arabs, Bedouins, Druze and Circassians. In a lecture-style format, we will strive to attain a deeper understanding of their experiences in Israel, their diverse identities and what their relationships with the state say about Israeli society. Presentations will also include primary material to give a voice to members of these groups. Participants will be provided with a booklet written and edited by the instructor as a companion to the course. | Lecture + Q&A.
Max enrollment: 24.
