Media Studies Orientations for Israel Education: Lessons from "In Treatment," "Homeland," and "Z-Cars"
Gottlieb, Owen
Journal of Jewish Education, v79 n1 p49-69 2013
Israeli film and television have risen to international prominence, presenting compelling and complicating perspectives. Simultaneously, Web 2.0 technologies have accelerated the spread and immediacy of digital media. Following the work of Holtz (2003) and Levisohn (2010) in developing orientations for teaching Bible and Rabbinic Literature, this article develops a menu of media studies orientations for teaching Israel to Americans. It explores distinctive aspects of media studies, the relevance to Israel education of the work of Marland (1968a, 1968b), and applies the orientations through case studies of the Israeli television series "Be-Tipul" and "Hatufim" and their American adaptations, "In Treatment" and "Homeland." (Contains 3 footnotes.)
