MES 381 • POST-ZIONIST PERSPECTIVES IN ISRAELI LITERATURE
2:00 PM-5:00 PM
This seminar explores Israeli literature and cinema through the context of the controversial historical, cultural, and artistic development that has come to be known as "post-Zionism." Within the framework of the theoretical texts that inform post-Zionism, we will first consider its various interpretations in literature and film, as well as the social and cultural context which gave birth to it.
