In this term’s seminars, we take a closer look at the early years of Zionism, before it acquired a newfound respectability and prestige in the wake of the Balfour Declaration (November 1917).

Who were the forces driving the nascent movement? What were their motivations and concerns? What ideologies did they articulate? And how were their ideas received by the Jewish public?
