History of Zionism

Monday/Thursday, 2nd period
Miller Hall, Room 115
Amy Weiss

This course explores the development of Zionism from nineteenth-century Europe to twenty-first century Israel. An analysis of speeches, personal essays, newspaper articles, and film will reveal the evolution of the Zionist idea across centuries and continents. In examining the work of Zionist precursors, the critiques of non-Zionists and anti-Zionists, the development of Jewish nationalism in the United States, the ideological beliefs of Christian Zionists, and the political determination of the founders of modern Israel, students will interrogate how this movement has shaped modern history.
