JCIV 461 - Zionism and Anti-Zionism
Zionism is one of history’s most successful revolutions. However, since inception, Zionism faced not only diplomatic and physical obstacles to implementing its vision, but intellectual opposition to its very idea, which continued even once the idea of Zionism materialized in the form of the state of Israel. The course will explore Zionist and anti-Zionist thought in tandem by engaging with original texts and key figures who have shaped the more than century long debates over Zionism and its opposition. The course will do so by exploring how every type of Zionist thought (political, social, religious) was opposed by a certain brand of anti-Zionism, and reflect on how those various debates about Zionism persist to this day. This course is taught by Dr. Einat Wilf, Visiting Goldman Israeli Professor, Author and former member of the Israeli Parliament (Knesset). Course also listed as GOVX 461.
