Campus event: "Beyond the Stigma: Palestine/Israel/USA Through Art”
The Honors Program and the Residential College are hosting a series of
events the week of Oct. 11-16 entitled “Beyond the Stigma: Palestine/Israel/USA
Through Art.” A team of visiting artists (music, theater, film, photography
and poetry) will join with U-M faculty and local academics to explore the
Palestinian/Israeli conflict through the lenses of the performing arts.
The goal is not to stigmatize, but to learn again to hear, see and try
to understand “the other.” Since politics seem incapable of
producing a solution to this highly charged conflict, this series avoids
the overtly political elements of the situation to focus on its human aspects.
The week’s events include a mini-course and a series of events that,
while part of the course, are open to the public. More>
