Israeli society is diverse in terms of nationality, ethnicity, geography, religion, religiosity, economy, etc. The aim of this course is to give an introduction of the socio-cultural fragmentation of Israeli society today and to explore the roles of media (technologies and discourses) and social constructions in shaping and modifying the relations between different groups in the society. The course addresses the theoretical and practical issues arising from the fragmentations and diversity of Israeli society.
