REL-256: Israel and Palestine, J-term 2003
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.
- Group A: Israel's view of the Suez and 6-day War (1956 and 1967)
(Bruce and John Cook)
- Group B: Egypt's view of the Suez and 6-day War (1956 and 1967)
(Jonathan and Jennifer and Jessica)
- Group C: Israel's view of the recent 1987 and 2000 Intifadas
(Emily and Megan)
- Group D: Palestinian's view of the 1987 and 2000 Intifadas
(Sharon and Jeremy)
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.
