Virtual Student Exchange. Bar Ilan Universität (Israel)

Das Centrum für Jüdische Studien hat mit der Bar Ilan Universität (Israel) eine Kooperation im Bereich der digitalen Lehre vereinbart. Im Rahmen dieses „Virtual Student Exchange“ können Grazer Studierende online ausgewählte Lehrveranstaltungen des Department of Jewish Art in englischer Sprache belegen, die von der KFU Graz angerechnet werden.

 

Folgende Kurse können im Studienjahr 2022/23 belegt werden:

Im Wintersemester 22/23:

  • Dr. Mor Presiado “Fixing the World: Feminist Art and Jewish Identity” (Mooc) (Bar-Ilan)
    Time: The course will be open through the entire semester (registered students will receive detailed instructions prior to the beginning of the course).
    Description: From the early 1970s to the present, Jewish women have been at the center of the field of feminist art. The course deals with the intersecting issues of feminist art, women's art and Jewish art, and illuminates the contribution of Jewish artists to the feminist art world, and to the various Jewish societies over the past fifty years.
    Students will learn about Women’s Art and Feminist Jewish Art, recognizing basic theories and concepts in the following areas: feminism, gender studies, art and Judaism. Among the topics covered will be the centrality of American feminist Jewish artists in the Feminist art scene of the 1970s and 80s and the Jewish context of their works; issues of feminism and gender in Holocaust-related art; women's art that deals with the intersection between the Jewish-ethnic body and gender; social activism and institutional criticism in the world of feminist Jewish art; the importance and contribution of art to religious feminism and a discussion of religious issues that arise in the works of feminist artists: ritual immersion, religious laws governing menstruation, and family purity. As well as the gender contexts of immigration and nation-state issues in Israel.
    Requirements: Participation on the course website portal—10%   of grade;  Five-page final paper in which you will be asked to answer two essay questions based on the material and bibliography studied in the course—90%  of grade
     
  • Prof. Maya Balakirsky Katz “From Ashes to Ashes: Death in the Jewish Imagination” (Zoom) (Bar-Ilan)

    Time: Tuesday 10:00-11:30 IST
    Description: Death is definitive. In very practical terms, death defines life. But however real, death is also mythical, inspiring an entire culture around it. However inevitable, death is, by definition, an imaginary experience for the living. Representations of immortality shape mortality. While death is constant, it is reimagined anew in every generation. And, while death is universal, different cultures and sub-strata within a given culture generate unique customs and images surrounding the passage of life. Jewish attitudes towards death provides an understudied lens for studying the constitution of identity, selfhood, and collective memory across various periods of Jewish history. Artistic themes and visual practices surrounding the spectacle of death, necro-politics, celebrity funerals, and different modes of death by execution, suicide and martyrdom, reflect and indelibly mark Jewish history.
    The course is thematic and does not attempt to present an uninterrupted timeline of Jewish history but it is organized chronologically. Each class explores the meanings of an astounding range of artistic and functional objects, rituals and customs related to dying and death, such as warding off the Angel of Death, the preparation of the body and the grave, funerals, the rituals of mourning, and artistic representations of the return of the dead through gilgul, dybbuk, the Undead, the Afterlife, and the anticipation of the Messianic Rising of the Dead.
    Requirements: Written Assignment 4-5 pages; Attendance and participation required and 50% of grade, Written assignment—50% of grade

  • Prof. Claudia Rosenzweig-Kupfer “Telling the Shoah in Literature, Comics, Cinema” (1) (Zoom) (Bar-Ilan)

    Time: Tuesday, 12:00–14:00 IST (Israeli Time - + 1h)
    This class is meant to offer a broad spectrum of fictional works dealing with the theme of the Holocaust. The question of ‘fictionality’ within such a field is problematic, and yet it is important to posit it, in order to try to ask the difficult question of what is going to happen when the ‘era of the witnesses’ will be over and how art can approach it.
    The students will get to read or read again works such The Shawl by Cynthia Ozick (1980), If not now, when? by Primo Levi (1982) and Maus by Art Spiegelman (1980–1991), and see films such as Sidney Lumet’s The Pawnbroker (1964) and Louis Malle’s Au revoir les enfants (Engl. Goodbye, Children, 1987).
    Requirements: Each student must submit 2 assignments, give a presentation in class and write a final paper. The assignments and the participation to the discussion in class compose 60% of the final mark, the presentation and the paper the 40%.

Im Sommersemester 2023:

  • Prof. Maya Balakirsky Katz “Reel Jews: Cinema and the Jewish Experience” (Zoom) (Bar-Ilan)

    Time: Tuesday 10:00-11:30 IST
    Description
    : This course is devoted to the rise of film and the popularization of the cinematic apparatus from the perspective of the considerable scholarly attention it has received in the field of Jewish Studies. Whether helping to shape it, being accused of controlling it, self-censoring or banning its consumption on grounds of its perverse effects on the soul, or celebrating it as a tool of democratization, Jews have had an intimate and sometimes painful relationship to cinema.
    Requirements
    : Written Assignment 4-5 pages; Attendance and participation required and 50% of grade, Written assignment—50% of grade

  • Dr. Klaus Hödl “Ego-documents of Ashkenazic and Sephardic Jews” (KF Uni Graz)

    Time: Tuesday, 8.15 am (CET/ 9.15 JT) – 9.45 am (CET/ 10.45 JT) (7.3., 14.3., 21.3., 28.3., 18.4., 25.4., 2.5., 9.5., 16.5., 23.5., 6.6., 13.6., 20.6., 27.6.)
    Description
    : In the seminar students analyze Jewish ego-documents written over the last few centuries until the present. One of the foci will be laid on memoirs of Holocaust survivors. The exploration sheds light on experiences and emotions of ordinary Jews largely neglected or flatly ignored by conventional historical narratives.
    Students become familiar with aspects of Jewish life that are difficult to acquire from other sources. The seminar relies predominantly on a microhistorical approach.
    Requirements
    : oral presentation, written essay, participation in discussions

  • N.N. guest professor (KF Uni Graz)
    (to be announced asap)
