With the goal to study the “Portrayal of the Other” in Palestinian and Israeli school books,the project is funded by a grant from U.S Department of State and is implemented under the supervision of Prof. Bruce Wexler of Yale University and his NGO – A Different Future.
A joint Palestinian-Israeli research team – headed by Professors Daniel Bar-Tal (Tel Aviv University) and Sami Adwan (Bethlehem University) – was formed, employing 7 research assistants (3 Israeli and4 Palestinian, all fluent in Arabic and Hebrew) to analyze texts of 486 Israeli and 144 Palestinian books from grades 1 to 12.
A Scientific Advisory Panel was also assembled, consisting of European, American, Palestinian and Israeli experts in school book analysis, history and education, who will oversee all aspects of the work.
This is the first study to constitute a joint Israeli/Palestinian research team and use identical, standardized scientific methods in a simultaneous and comprehensive study of both Israeli and Palestinian books with oversight by an expert Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP). American IT Solutions, worked with Yale University to design the system specifically for this Text Book Analysis Project. Special Thanks to Dr. Bruce Wexler, Prof. Daniel Bar-Tal, Prof. Sami Adwan and their teams!
