REL-256: Israel and Palestine, J-term 2003

2nd presentation

For this project, there will be four groups: Your group's goal is to give a biased (though not extremist) account of each event: What would you be taught about the events if you are a typical Israeli, Egyptian or Palestinian student? Focus on the events which led up to the conflicts, the conflict itself, and if and how the conflict was resolved.

Incorporate the views of other countries ``on your side'' in a conflict as a way of promoting your biased account. When you do so, it would be helpful to the class if you could indicate why those countries are on ``your side'' (even though that may not promote your biased account).

You should use powerpoint in your presentations so that your presentation is polished and we have a record for the course web page.
