This most advanced Hebrew course can be taken either as a language enrichment course to the parent course, CJS223: Israeli Women Filmmakers and Israeli Society, or taken by itself independently as an advanced Hebrew course. The focus of the course will be studying films made by female filmmakers. Students will analyze, discuss, and write on the films with special attention to mapping the cultural and social changes in Israeli society as well as changes in films' formats and themes. Conversing in Hebrew with Israeli film directors and scholars during Lunch and Learn Meetings as well as attending the screening of films in Hebrew in the Seventeenth Annual Ring Family Wesleyan University Israeli Film Festival and writing reflective papers on films will provide a cultural and social framework for the course. In addition, the course will include special workshops delivered by renowned Israeli filmmakers and scholars. The course may be repeated for credit. This course is part of Wesleyan's Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) initiative sponsored by the Center for Global Studies.
