The course will deal with the representation of the 'other' in modern Hebrew and Israeli culture. Among the various 'others' that will be discussed are the Arab, the Mizrahi Jew, the Ultra-Orthodox, women, gays, holocaust survivors, the poor. Through representation of the 'other' a culture reveals its underlying anxieties and fears, its yearnings and its traumas, its deep-seated identity-building formations. No background is required. Since the content of this course may change from year to year students may take it for credit more than once (if the course is indeed different).
