Israel-Palestine in the College Classroom

How do Jewish identity and Israel identity manifest on campus — both inside and outside the classroom?

Academia today is increasingly rooted in activism, not just inquiry. Students are defining a new 21st century Jewish identity, but many self-censor because the Israel-Palestine conflict is uncomfortable. And many Jewish studies faculty feel pressured to avoid conversations around this topic to protect their academic credentials. Is this the trend of where we’re headed in the future?

Hartman Fellow Dr. Sara Yael Hirschhorn (Northwestern University) discusses these trends with Yehuda Kurtzer in this week’s Identity/Crisis podcast.

Identity/Crisis is a weekly podcast from the Shalom Hartman Institute about news and ideas.
