Citizenship and Nationality in Israel/Palestine

Citizenship and Nationality in Israel/Palestine

A Teachers' Workshop

The workshop will focus on the challenges of establishing a state in 1948 that committed itself to be both Jewish and democratic; the status of the Palestinian minority in such a state; and the critical differences between a “homeland,” a “nation,” and a “state”. The workshop will include a set of short readings that will be distributed in advance for discussion.

Reconfiguring Representations of the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia

A Teacher’s Symposium and Workshop

Media sources have constructed problematic images about the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA). Through this symposium, we hope to begin conversations about representations within curriculum and teaching, and cultivate culturally relevant pedagogy when teaching students from these regions.
