This course deals with the Israeli politics, economy, society and culture, since its creation in 1948 till today. It analyzes the construction of the Israeli historical narrative as an identity-building narrative, intending to inculcate a collective memory to a diverse society. We will focus on key events and essential components that shaped the Israeli society from the fifties till the present. We will also discuss the changes that the Israeli society experiences in its almost seventy years of existence and how it affects its politics and culture. Among the topics we will discuss issues such as immigration, economic transformation, political upheaval, religious Zionism and post-Zionism, privatization and Americanization, Holocaust increasing role in shaping Israel's identity, diversity and multiculturalism, as well as the enduring conflict with the Palestinians and the Arab world.

No le califiqué con 5 estrellas únicamente por la falta de una bibliografía que me permita mejorar los conocimientos adquiridos en el curso

Excellent course. I learned a lot about Israel's identity, culture and contradictions. In addition, the course clearly addresses the security issues experienced by Israel from its inception to the present day. The current debate on Israeli society about Israel being a Judaic and Democratic state - and what this, in fact means - was a differential in the course. I enjoy every week and lesson.

This course is bang on. I thought I knew quite a lot about the subject but found out all I really knew was on the fringes. I found through the course the knowledge and history of the still ongoing building of the State/Nation of Israel. I really enjoyed this course and recommend it to anyone with the interest of the true facts of what is happening now and what has already taken place, and hopes for the future.

Very informative course. I would like to have some more detail, i.e. a longer and more profound course. The test are too easy.
