This new language course is offered as an enrichment opportunity to students with intermediate or advanced Hebrew skills who are interested in improving all their language skills and/or acquiring additional linguistic and cultural preparation for study abroad in Israel. Cultural activities including participating in the series The Twenty-First Annual Contemporary Israeli Voices 2023 and Lunch and Learn meetings with native speakers are part of the course. In addition, special writing workshops with internationally renowned Israeli scholars such as Etgar Keret will be integrated into the course curriculum. The course explores the changes in Israeli society as it moves from national ideological literature to the exploration of new multicultural media such as films and TV shows and thus gaining international fame and inspiring widespread emulation. 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.
