ANTH 098 PZ - The Modern State and History: The Israeli Case


This seminar examines relationships between the Israeli state and historical remembering of four moments: (i) the reported exile following the Bar Kokhba revot of the second century, (ii) the Holocaust, (iii) the establishment of the Israeli state, and (iv) the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon.  It includes consideration of (i) the scholarly literature on the social construction of races, nations, and peoples, and (ii) debates about the desirability of "neutrality" and "balance" in courses on controversial, potentially incendiary, topics.  The course considers how much the Israeli case is distinctive and how much it tells us about the relationship between modern states and history more generally.

Prerequisite(s): ANTH011 PZ , or permission of the instructor
Instructor: D. Segal
