MES 16.31 Palestinian Literature and Cinema

This course explores various aspects of Palestinian existence through literature and cinema.  What does it mean to be “Palestinian”?  What unifies a cultural output produced not only in Arabic, but also in Hebrew and English, by people who carry a variety of citizenships (or none at all)? How have Palestinian authors and filmmakers grappled with issues such as collective identity, the “Other,” and internal social problems?  How have these issues influenced their use of literature and film as art forms?
