FIQWS - Israel-Palestine: War and Identity in Literature and Film in Translation: Home

Research guide with a focus on Israel-Palestine authors and film.

Israel-Palestine: War and Identity in Literature and Film in Translation

Israel-Palestine: War and Identity in Literature and Film in Translation is a multifaceted subject. While the class focuses particularly on literature and films in translation, you will find yourself considering the context of the works. Some of your writing may require that you research across subjects like history, philosophy, psychology, politics, and religion. Use this guide to start working with the Library's resources. Below is a review of how to find a book using the CUNY OneSearch tool in both basic and advanced search modes. OneSearch searches across the physical collection and the electronic collection at City College and across all of the CUNY Libraries. It can also be used to identify journal articles.
