Traveling in (and out of) the Holy Land: Israeli Tourism
Tourism is one of the most salient cultural phenomena in the post-World War II era and a main feature of modern life. In this course we will approach tourism from the Israeli perspective. Located at the juncture of Asia, Africa, and Europe and the birthplace of the three monotheistic religions, "The Holy Land", is an important site of pilgrimage and tourism. The diverse landscapes, pleasant weather, varied ethnic mosaic, Middle Eastern cuisine, and vibrant night life further contribute to the country's appeal. Yet Israel is also a hotspot of political disputes and the site of one of the longest standing conflicts of our era, scaring away many tourists, yet attracting others—interested in different kinds of "dark-tourism". Israelis themselves are big travelers, roaming the world individually and on tour-groups, carrying along their cultural traits and behavioral patterns. The lectures and readings for this course will outline the contemporary social theory of tourism and will analyze touristic practices in and of Israel and the Israelis.

Radical Humanity: Performance and Social Activism
In this course we will cover the history of performance art and the dynamic power of activism; we will focus primarily on the collaborative creation of performance infused with a social conscience. Content will range from political science to women and gender studies to civil rights. Looking at art-making through the eyes of pivotal historical figures in addition to contemporary artists, we will gather techniques to develop solo and group performances. Readings, films, journal writing, and studio research will be an integral part of this highly experiential class.

Global Environmental Activism
Global Environmental Activism
In this course we will critically explore foundations of anti/postcolonial theories and environmental activism. We will use an interdisciplinary perspective to challenge global dominant concepts of the environment and agri-food systems and critically explore collective/individual responses. We will examine macro and micro level environmental realities connected to collective agency, social change, environmental activism, and individual implications in our everyday social relations in a transnational context. Throughout the course we will explore literature from different disciplines (such as sociology, environmental studies, anthropology, history, women’s studies, ethnic studies, and other interrelated disciplines), and cover different regions of the world. This course will count as an elective towards the SOAN major and as a cognate for ENVS majors who have a focus in the natural sciences.
