JWST359 - SEM MODERN HEBREW LIT: The Representation of the City

The purpose of this seminar is to analyze Hebrew and Israeli literary texts through the framework of various theoretical approaches. The original text will be our point of departure for both, the above analysis and our broader discussion of the writer's relationship to society and political issues. Prerequisite for this course is HEBR259 or permission of instructor, as the texts are more complex, linguistically and artistically. This course is designed for students seeking to further their acquaintance with this literary corpus and who are in advanced to native levels. Past topics include: "Hebrew Poetry and Identity: 1900-1948;" "He and She in Modern Hebrew Literature;" Rebel Children of Israeli Literature;" and Giants of Hebrew Literature."
