(Re-)Introduction to Israel/Palestine with Jeremy Siegman
Starting Tues., Feb. 20 from 5-6:15pm (PT) for 5 Tuesdays (via Zoom)

This survey of key topics on Israel/Palestine aims to provide some context and progressive-left political education for the current moment. We will briefly touch on questions that include: How has Zionism related to European and U.S. empire, Jewish persecution, and the Palestinians? What are the main features of the occupation? What forms of Israeli and Palestinian politics have existed within and in opposition to the peace process? How do class and ethnic hierarchies fit into all this? Drawing on academic and other thoughtful sources, we will come together to deepen our knowledge with an eye towards political possibilities for justice and safety for all. While the class is introductory in that it covers core themes of “the conflict” (alternatively known as colonization and resistance), there will be plenty of analysis and attempts to grapple with current events, which may also appeal to those who’ve spent time on this issue or would like to revisit it. There will be short, encouraged readings, and some time for facilitated, good-faith discussion, with the assumption that there will be a range of progressive viewpoints in the Zoom room.

Sliding Scale Cost: $125
