HIST 800 THE ARAB-ISRAELI CONFLICT
The Arab-Israeli conflict is the longest-running conflict in modern history. While unfolding over an area the size of New Jersey, its influence has been felt across the globe for over a century. This course surveys the origins and evolution of the conflict between Zionists and Palestinians in historic Palestine. We will focus on the emergence of the two national communities, and explore the internal dynamics as they relate to the overall question of the conflict. We will approach this history through scholarly texts, but also with a strong emphasis on the words of the protagonists themselves. We will locate the main bones of contention in their historical contexts, and examine them from multiple viewpoints.
