Teaching the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict on a College Campus
Since October 7, clashes on college campuses around the Israeli/Palestinian conflict have drawn vast media attention and triggered enormous controversy with serious implications, including the resignations of multiple university presidents. But through all this, little attention has been paid to how the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is taught in the university classroom and how students have been impacted by their learning experiences. Dr. Michal Raucher, associate professor of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University, has been teaching the Israeli/Palestinian conflict to undergraduates for a decade. Hear Dr. Raucher discuss her approach to teaching this deeply charged subject; the challenges raised by October 7 among Rutgers’ particularly diverse student body; how she pivoted to keep students engaged in learning; and about various opportunities students have had to learn about the conflict outside the classroom.
