C C hapter 4 hapter 4 Socialization Socialization Transcript for Author-Created Video Introduction to Chapter 4: Socialization Chapter 4 is about socialization, a learning process by which people develop a sense of self and come to know the ways of the society in which they live. This topic is paired with Israel and the Palestinian Territories. Israel is shaded in blue on the map; the Palestinian territories, which are called Gaza and the West Bank, are shaded in green. In this chapter, the emphasis is on the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, which has lasted more than a century. For a conflict to last more than 100 years, it must be passed down through many generations. This chapter uses the sociological concepts and theories related to socialization to answer this question: “How is conflict between groups passed down from one generation to the next?” In the case of the Palestinians and Israelis, the conflict has been passed on in both obvious and not so obvious ways: It is passed on through monuments and memorials. In tiny Israel, there are more than nine hundred memorials to the war dead, and every week of the year includes a day set aside to remember a traumatic event. The conflict is passed on through important symbols. As early as two-years-old, Palestinian children learn to hold their index and middle finger into a V—the symbol for victory over Israel. The conflict is passed on through television shows. In Israel and the Palestinian territories, the well-known Sesame Street show airs as Sesame Stories because the idea that a neutral street exists where Palestinians and Jews might gather together is not a believable scenario in that part of the world. On a positive note, Sesame Stories does emphasize themes of hope and friendship, but as you will learn in the chapter, the producers must work very hard to create stories that are sensitive to both sides.
