People representing many different faiths, ethnicities, languages, and cultures populate Modern Israel. Nevertheless, Jews of European origins have dominated the state's political and cultural climate. Through an exploration of literature and film, we will explor the ways in which the sense of the "self" is constructed and the ways in which the "other" is imagined in Israeli culture. "Others" include Palestinians, Sepharadim, Mizrahim, non-Zionists, Women, Eastern Europeans who do not relinquish their ties to the past, as well as individuals who resist the collective ideologies of a modern nation in the making.

Opens a "global" window on the field of Digital Humanities (DH) and its computational tools. We will both constructively problematize the Euro-Americancentrism of the dominant DH framework and work through some of the technical challenges of developing a more global DH. Students interested in theoretical debates within DH, practical applications of DH methods to various humanities disciplines (literature, history, political science, etc.), or the purely technical dimensions of DH work (coding, statistics, etc.) are all equally welcome.
