Identity, History, and Culture in Israeli Cinema

HEST 232
Spring 2011 not offered
Certificates: Jewish and Israel Studies

The course illuminates trends and processes in Israeli cultural history as articulated in Israeli films from the 1960s to present-day Israel. Topics include diverse aspects of Israeli society and culture: history and collective memory; nationality; ethnicity; gender; cult films and Israeli mythologies; war, peace, and their impact on Israeli culture. Screenings of Israeli films are a very central part of the course. Films from present-day Israel, including the most recent, as well as from earlier decades, create the ideological and cultural universe that the course illuminates.
