Homeland Exile and Diaspora (Winter 2021)
Jewish tradition brims with reflections on the “Land of Israel” and the twin concepts of homeland and exile. These foundational images have been interpreted in vastly different ways throughout the centuries, from geographic sites and political principles to poetic devices and spiritual archetypes. This course will examine some major trends from ancient through contemporary times, including contexts such as the Hebrew Bible, classical Midrash, Jewish mysticism, liberal Jewish movements, modern Zionism, and contemporary diasporism.
What do these sources mean for us today?
How might these resources help us think in new ways about our own identities and life stories, Jewish spirituality, and Jewish politics?
