Class Details

This tutorial addresses the powerful, competing, and bitterly contested historical narratives that underpin the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Both Israelis and Palestinians appeal to history to legitimize their territorial claims and to justify contemporary action. Special attention will be paid to the interpretations of key historical moments (1948, 1967, 1994, and 2000) and on the contrasting views of some of the core issues of the conflict (Jerusalem, refugees, settlements, terrorism).
