Frm Zionist Mvmnt to Cntmp Isr - 38614 - INAF 230 - 01
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the study of Zionism and contemporary Israel. This course aims to give students familiarity with the main events and features of Israel's history and present, as well as with the different interpretations and narratives of that history. The course will begin by analyzing the origins and development of Zionist idea and movement in Europe and the Russian Empire at the turn of the 19th century and the subsequent settlement of Jews in Palestine. We will then continue with the establishment of the independent state in May 1948, and will survey and analyze critical events and major themes of the state's first eight decades; such as Israel's ideological and political foundations, the centrality of immigration, religion, Arab minorities, civil-military relations, and inter-Jewish tensions both within Israel and with world Jewry, particularly in the United States.
