Palestine and its Diaspora

Palestine and its Diaspora through Film and Literature (in English)

We will examine different notions of being Palestinian by focusing on the film and literature produced by three main axes of Palestinian society: Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, Palestinians within Israel, and the Palestinian Diaspora. We will read works by Emil Habiby, Mahmoud Darwish, and Sahar Khalifeh; and analyze films including Wedding in Galilee, Paradise Now, and The Time that Remains. Secondary readings and discussions will set these works in contemporary historical, cultural, and political perspectives. 3 hrs. lect.
