This seminar is an introduction to the field of Israeli Popular Culture and is oriented toward students who are interested in learning about Israeli popular culture in a transnational and interdisciplinary frame. Focusing mainly on Israeli popular music, students will make a journey through different genres and styles that represent the cultural richness developed since early Zionism, going through deep social and cultural changes during the last two centuries. In addition, along the way students will engage with interdisciplinary cultural productions such as literature, film, television, and dance through their interaction with different musical styles helping students ultimately develop a broad and knowledgeable understating of social and cultural processes in the Israeli society.
