Global Seminar of Israel, May 2013
"Justice, Human Rights, and Democracy in Israel"
with Professor Caryn Aviv
Monday, January 28 @ 5PM
Center for Community (C4C) Rm S484

*This seminar is open to ALL students of ALL backgrounds and majors*
Credits can be applied to majors and minors in Jewish Studies.
For International Affairs Majors, credits can be applied to Africa/Middle East geographic concentration (3 credits) and Functional Area IV, Institutions, Rights and Norms (3 credits).

This newly approved global seminar will be offered as a Maymester 2013 course in Israel from May 21-June 2013.

In this 6-credit Contemporary Societies core course, students will explore the complexities of democracy, human rights, and social justice in Israel and the West Bank. This course introduces students to people, ideas, places, and organizations that articulate diverse, multiple and competing perspectives about justice, democracy, and human rights. We will explore how individuals and groups make sense of these concepts, and how diverse political commitments drive individual and collective choices and actions.

Beginning the second week in Jerusalem, students will participate in team-based service learning projects with non-profit organizations working in the region. Students will have the opportunity to learn from and network with experts working in social justice, human rights and democracy in Israel and the Middle East.

The seminar will take students to various locations in Israel and the West Bank but will be based out of Jerusalem in the historic neighborhood of Talpiot in apartment-like suites. Founded in 1922, Talpiot has access to major shopping centers and public transportation. It has become a central hub in Jerusalem, especially for the growing music scene.

This course will be led by Professor Caryn Aviv, Senior Instructor in Secular Jewish Society and Civilization. She earned her PhD in sociology and anthropology at Loyola University in Chicago. Dr. Aviv conducts research on and teaches in the areas of gender, sexuality, Zionism, Israel, and contemporary Jewish cultures.
