Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Culture and Ethics

COM 302/NES 320/JDS 308

Info tab content
What is the relationship between culture and ethics in conflict zones? Can culture serve as an agent of conflict resolution and social change, or does it deepen political divisions? How does art represent extreme violence? How do power and cultural interact? This course explores such questions through the lens of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. We'll see how the conflict permeates everyday life, and how Palestinian and Israeli artists, writers and filmmakers respond. Course material includes film, fiction, memoir, visual art, music, TV satire, interactive websites, and cookbooks, all in English translation; course features guest speakers.
