Israel in Therapy: Society Under the Influence of TV Series

HEST 234
Spring 2011 not offered
Certificates: Jewish and Israel Studies

This course will explore the new Israeli character. Characters in dramatic TV series not only reflect the time and space they act in, they help form the face and nature of the collective identity of the society. This course will examine leading roles in Israeli TV series since the mid-90s. IN TREATMENT, SATURDAYS AND HOLIDAYS, and FLORENTINE are some of the series that will be analyzed in the course as examples that both reflect and influence the identity of the new Israel. Students in class will do personal research on the many identitites and faces of the Israeli characters, and together we will draw a profile of Israel today.
