Description

Title:Palestine and Palestinians: The Land Where the "Peoples" of Three Continents Meet and Determine Our Future
Author(s):Gregory Rabb
Subject(s):Palestine
Palestinians
Palestinian conflict
Geographic Coverage:Palestine
Israel
Abstract:The course is designed to enable students to discover and explore the geography, history, economics, culture and religion of Palestine and the Palestinian people as a key to understanding the Middle East and its connections to larger world issues at the meeting point of three continents (Africa, Asia, and Europe) and the starting point of the three “Abrahamic” religions (Christianity, Islam, and Judaism). Students will be expected to develop and demonstrate an understanding of this complex, fascinating and, at times, volatile part of the world in order to arrive at viable policy proposals and solutions, in the interest of social justice (transitional, retributive, and restorative justice), to the “conflicts” which have been a part of this world for far too long, conflicts which flare up into regional wars and potentially larger wars involving the major powers.
