Israel Studies
Seminar in Israel Studies; The Israeli War Discourse, 1967-2017
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Recommended: Some knowledge of Israel or a previous Israel Studies course. This online course focuses on a unique Israeli phenomenon, 'war-normalizing discourse', a set of linguistic and cultural devices that blur the various characteristics of war by transforming it into a "normal" part of life. We will examine the reciprocal relations between this discourse, Israeli culture and society, and foreign policy.
