Intro toJCIV:Identity&Politics - 32688 - INAF 199 - 03
This course introduces students to major themes in Jewish civilization by focusing on the history of the Jewish people from antiquity to the present. The goal of the course is to understand how Jews have conceived of politics in different historical and geographical settings and in relation to the peoples and governments around them. Organized as a discussion seminar based on weekly readings, throughout the semester we will draw from Biblical texts, primary historical sources, personal accounts, philosophic writings, media, and secondary scholarship. We will study the Jewish past and present by examining the various formations of Jewish life and politics spanning Ancient Israel and the Diaspora to the rise of modern political movements and the world of current global affairs. We will particularly consider the impact of antisemitism and the Holocaust, as well as how Jews have navigated the politics of assimilation amid desires to maintain distinct forms of community and identity. Course taught by Dr. Alana Holland. Course also listed as JCIV 199.
