Focusing on the period between the 1905 immigration wave and the present, the course will explore the cultural, social, and economic practices relating to the production and consumption of food in Palestine and later Israel. The course will also analyze how the change in relationship between Israelis and their food mirrors the search for a definition of modern Jewish nationalism. It will examine the role of women, ethnic groups, and different generations in the food narrative of the country, and also highlight some of the issues associated with this narrative.
