    This course will examine the development of the Zionist idea from its ancient and rabbinic origins to its modern political implementation. A particular area of focus will be on the modern Zionist movement, the variety of perspectives on Zionism within the movement, their conflicting visions, and the various ways in which Zionists sought to approach the Arab population. The history of Israeli politics, culture, and society since 1948 will also be a central element of the course.
      Course Description
    This course will chart the development of a prophetic persona in Hebrew Literature in relation to the Zionist Project. We will reflect upon the specific attributes of the genre of prophetic Zionist Literature and consider it within the historical, literary and theological contexts from which it emerged. Readings include: Abraham Mapu, Judah Leib, Gordon, Ahad Ha-am, and Chaim Nachman Bialik. This course is the same as HIS 237 and JDS 237, and course repeat rules will apply. Students should consult with their major department regarding any restrictions on their degree requirements.
