Palestine versus the Palestinians

HIST 1978D S01 [CRN: 25794]

Who are the Palestinians? How and when did they become a “people”? What are the historical forces that led to the creation of Palestine, then its transformation into Israel? Underlying these questions is a tremendous tension between the historical evolution of Palestine and the Palestinians, as if one could exist only at the expense of the other. To explore this tension between identity and territory, students are introduced to recent scholarship that unsettles nationalist narratives and suggests alternative narratives. Enrollment limited to 20. Not open to first year students. M
