Content

This course aims at presenting some the most salient discussions between Zionism and post Zionism in scholarly works and their impact on our understanding of zionist narrative about terms as “Jewishness”, “Israelness”, “homeland”, Exile, and the “reconstruction” of  a national identity and memory.

In the words of Silberstein, postzionism is a term applied to a current set of critical positions that problematize Zionist discourse and the historical narratives and social and cultural representations that it produced.”

Students will be provided with theoretical and analytical tools to enable them to understand and interpret these scholarly texts on Zionism and postzionism and discourses thereof.
