ANTH 000/2007 - Anthropology of the Occupied: Palestine/ Israel (3 cr.)



Description
What does it mean to be occupied? How do those who are occupied experience their worlds? In this course we look at the experience of being occupied in Palestine/ Israel. Specifically, we look at the everyday lives of Palestinians through the eyes, ears, and words of Palestinians through a series of media, including ethnography, literature and poetry, documentary, cinema, visual and video art, each offering a valuable insight into the social, cultural, historical and political conditions of being occupied. Our objective across these readings and different media is to consider the Palestinian experience of being occupied with the goal of acquiring the analytic and critical tools for thinking about other experiences of being occupied.
