Art Beyond Hostilities: Music and Film in Israel/Palestine

February 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

In collaboration with the Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies at UNC-CH

Due to an unforeseen family emergency, Dr. Professor Yaron Shemer has had to drop out of this seminar and will be unable to present his scheduled talk, “Israeli-Palestinian Collaborations in Cinema: Partnerships and Power Disparities.” Dr. Michel Figueroa has graciously agreed to present two talks. Rather than Dr. Shemer’s scheduled presentation on Israeli-Palestinian Collaborations in Cinema, Dr. Figueroa will present: 

“The Art of Conflict” : During the first half of the seminar, Prof. Figueroa will present an overview of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, using the arts as a point of entry.  Drawing from his research in music and literature, he will show how a focus on the arts and culture can yield unique perspectives on the region’s conflicted politics.
After a short break, Dr. Figueroa will continue with his previously scheduled talk of “There Must Be Another Way”: The Politics of Israeli-Palestinian Musical Collaboration which will explore the musical techniques, political ideologies, and power dynamics involved in various collaborations between Israeli and Palestinian musician.




9:00am-12:30pm Saturday, February 23. The tuition is $65. A meal will not be offered with this seminar.
