The Debate on Zionism

The Debate on Zionism WT
What is Zionism? A Jewish national movement? A European colonial enterprise? A secular rebellion against tradition? A form of religious messianism? A manifestation of “Orientalism” and racism, or a collective Jewish response to these phenomena? From its beginnings in Europe to the present, Zionism and debates over Zionism have proven vital—and often fatal—for their participants. Readings will include major proponents and critics of Zionism: Palestinian and Marxist critiques of Zionist ideology, modern scholarly and journalistic accounts, film, and Palestinian and Israeli literature. 3 hrs. sem.
