Fourth-Level Modern Hebrew I

HEBREW 4011

A growing collection of Israeli artists and writers have embraced the evolving literary medium of the graphic novel. Throughout the semester students will engage in reading and analysis of these new kinds of literary artifacts and develop their understanding of this growing medium. Among others, we will read Eisner Award winner Rutu Modan's engaging novel about an Israeli archaeologist determined to finish her deceased father's expedition; noted Israeli short story author Etgar Keret's humorous take on existence in the afterlife, and Academy Award Nominee Ari Folman's retelling of Anne Frank's diary. These books and their use of visual imagery, alongside their concise Hebrew writing, will enrich students' Hebrew language skills as well as their understanding of contemporary Israel culture and its relationship to history, memory, and identity. PREREQ: Grade of B- or better in L74 322D Third-Level Modern Hebrew II or placement by examination.
