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>
