Film and Discussion

Senior Moments

 

Tamar Kay will introduce her film Senior Moments and lead a discussion after the screening. Funny, witty, bold and revealing, the creators of “Senior Moments” document intimate meetings with 10 resilient active elderly folks surviving old age with a vengeance. It cohesively samples a cultural variety of personalities in modern-day Israel and provides an inspiring outlook on what it means to be old this day and age.

Directed By: Tamar Kay & Yair Agmon, 2018

 

Tamar Kay graduated from the Sam Spiegel Film & Television School in Jerusalem in 2015. “Unchained,” an Israeli TV drama (12 episodes, 40 mins each) Tamar created with Yossi Madmoni & David Ofek, will have its premiere in November 2019, at the Israeli KAAN channel. She is a two-time Israeli Academy Award nominee.

The Mute’s House, which she directed and co-produced was shortlisted for the 2017 Best Short Documentary Academy Award (Oscars) and screened internationally and at MSU, winning numerous awards in prestigious festivals. Tamar edited the TV series, “Arik Einstein: A Standard Love Song”, which won the Israeli Emmy for Best Documentary TV Series (2018).

Center for Interdisciplinarity (C4I) Talk

Mapping a Comic Imaginary: Locality, Community, and Identity in North American Comics

Julian C. Chambliss, Professor and Core Faculty, Department of English and Consortium for Critical Diversity in a Digital Age Research (CEDAR)

In this presentation, I will discuss how an emerging digital humanities project utilizing MSU Library Comic Arts Collection metadata allows us to investigate how comic book culture might be shaped by location. Traditional narratives of comic book history have long emphasized the centrality of publication hubs such as New York, Tokyo, and Paris. With this project, we hope to explore how catalog metadata may reveal new relationships that shape comic culture.

Talk begins at 12:00 and runs about 1 hour.  Networking with coffee and refreshments immediately after the talk.

About C4I: The Michigan State University Center for Interdisciplinarity (C4I) advances interdisciplinary research and pedagogy at the University while preparing the next generation of citizen leaders to address the most challenging questions of our time. In addition to conducting its own research, C4I serves as a resource for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in the College of Arts & Letters and across campus, as well as for partners in the local community and across the region. It also serves as an advocate for researchers and scholars, consults with teams, provides resources for and about interdisciplinarity, and creates opportunities for training, education, networking, mentorship, visibility, and funding both on and off campus.

The Michael and Elaine Serling Institute for Jewish Studies and Modern Israel presents

Between the Ottoman Empire and Modern Greece: The Fate of Salonica ‘Jerusalem of the Balkans’

Dr. Devin E. Naar, University of Wisconsin

From 1492 until the twentieth century, the city of Salonica–once part of the Ottoman Empire and today the second biggest city in Greece– was home to the largest community of Ladinospeaking Sephardic Jews in the world. This talk focuses on how this once-thriving Jewish community grappled with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the rise of modern Greece prior to the devastation of the Holocaust. Dr. Devin E. Naar is Isaac Alhadeff Professor of Sephardic Studies and Associate Professor of History and Jewish Studies at the University of Washington. His book, Jewish Salonica: Between the Ottoman Empire and Modern Greece, won a National Jewish Book Award and the grand prize from the Modern Greek Studies Association.

The Kellogg Center Auditorium

Co- sponsors: James Madison College, the College of Arts and Letters, College of Social Science, Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, Department of History.
