Description

A survey course on the region of the Middle East known as Israel by some and Palestine by others. It outlines the historical events that occurred in that territory from the earliest days of the past to the present, analyzes the various factors (political, economic, cultural, and religious) that shaped its development, and introduces empires and nations that ruled the land as well as the people who inhabited its cities and villages. The course will pay careful attention to matters related to issues of Race and Ethnicity; the volatile story of this land will here serve as a laboratory for examining the interrelation between race, ethnicity, and religion across three millennia.

Course Requirements:

Course requirements include consistent attendance and participation, labs at Kelsey Museum, quizzes, short papers, a midterm and a final.

Class Format:

The lecture portion of this course will be fully online, but students must be available for class meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:30pm. Students should also be available for their discussion section at the assigned times.
