How literary works outside the realm of Western culture struggle with questions such as identity, minority, and the issue of the Other. How the Arab is viewed in Hebrew literature, film and music and how the Jew is viewed in Palestinian works in Hebrew or in works written in Arabic but viewed from the perspective of Hebrew/Israeli writers and scholars. Historical, political, and sociological forces that have contributed to the shaping of these writers' views.
