Please join the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies and the Adath Israel Synagogue on Sunday, January 29, 2023 at 11:00 AM ET for a talk with Dr. Csaba Nikolenyi. About the Talk: After almost four years of incessant elections and unstable coalition governments, the November 2022 Knesset elections produced a decisive outcome in favor of the bloc of religious and right-wing political parties united in their support of former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s return to leadership. Yet, the apparent return to stability came at the high price of deepening polarization in the party system and growing tensions within Israeli society. Indeed, the formation of Benjamin Netanyahu’s sixth coalition government sparked a wide range of concerns and critical reactions both domestically and internationally. This talk will discuss the key features of the new government, the policies that it will likely adopt and the prospects for Israel's international relations during the sixth Netanyahu government.
Please join the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies on Sunday, 29 January, 2023, for a virtual screening of the film, "Game Changers". After registering, the film link and password will be sent to you 48 hours before the screening. Following the film screening will be a live discussion with Director Noam Sobovitz via zoom on Monday, 30 January, 2023 at 12:00 PM ET. About the Film: How did a football match between enemies become a turning point in history? Twenty-five years after the Holocaust, against insurmountable emotional and political barriers and threats of terror, Israel national team and German Borussia Munchegladbach met in a match whose importance marked the beginning of the normalization between Israel and Germany. Through interviews with former German and Israeli footballers, historians, and diplomats, along with rare archival materials, the film examines the power of personal friendships to bring down the wall between nations, and of football, to pave the way between adversaries. Director: Noam Sobovitz Producers: Liat Kamai-Eshed, Nadine Neumann Co-Producers: Duki Dror, Reinhadrt Beetz Running Time: 56 minutes Languages: Hebrew, German, English Subtitles: Hebrew, English

What does cutting-edge research in philosophy look like? What are pressing and enduring questions it uncovers, and ways of addressing them? This event offers a taste. From enduring questions about the nature of morality and human experience, to urgent questions about how to overcome oppression, research conducted in Concordia’s Department of Philosophy reflects this diversity.
The Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS) Graduate team is pleased to announce the return of our successful Hush Up and Write writing workshops that are designed to help graduate students make progress with their writing projects throughout the academic year.
This workshop will provide you with some of the fundamentals in the interdisciplinary field of oral history. Participants will learn about an oral history approach to interviewing, ethics in research, and the many ways that oral histories are shared with the public.

In this talk, Sowparnika Balaswaminathan will juxtapose the intimate and the political in a particular ethnographic collection at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), and ask what narratives are made possible when ethnography is unanchored from its “culture area” setting.
