For a variety of reasons, most American Jews have learned more about the history of modern Israel but less about the full complexity of cultures that make up contemporary Israeli society.  This course will help participants grasp how that history actually gets lived out in the day-to-day life of a sprawling, vibrant, deeply multicultural and multi-religious society.

Drawing on both popular and more elite media, such as film, short stories, television programs and popular song videos (all in translation), and also taking advantage of helpful scholarly literature, this course will explore many facets of the contemporary cultural experience in Israel. A great number of very different identities thrive in contemporary Israeli society. This 10-week course will focus on these identities, their histories and politics and the relationships between them.
