Internationally acclaimed Palestinian filmmaker Sameh Zoabi (Film & TV Studies, New York University) discusses the state of Palestinian cinema. Born and raised in Iksal, a Palestinian village near the city of Nazareth, Zoabi graduated from Tel Aviv University with a dual degree in Film Studies and English Literature. In 2000, Zoabi received a Fullbright Fellowship to pursue an M.F.A. in Film Direction from the School of the Arts at Columbia University. Zoabi is also the recipient of prestigious residencies at the Cannes Festival Cinefondation and the Sundance Screenwriters Lab. Zoabi's work is inspired by his upbringing, intermingled with the vast multicultural exchanges that his studies and work permitted. Zoabi's time in the United States, France and the Middle East granted opportunities to develop unique international perspectives as a writer-director. These perspectives aided in the development of projects which speak to a new wave of Arab cinema. Sponsors for this event include the Simpson Center, the Comparative Literature Department, the Moving Images Research Group, and the Performing the Gap Graduate Interest Group.

06/22/2013 - 4:00pm

A memorial service for Herbert Blau will be held, with a reception to follow. Blau was Byron W. and Alice L.

RSVPs requested by June 15 - please visit http://herbertblau.eventbrite.com/ or email schadmin@uw.edu.

The purpose of the annual Arts Conference is to create an intellectual platform for the arts and arts practices, and to create an interdisciplinary conversation on the role of the arts in society. It is intended as a place for critical engagement, examination and experimentation of ideas that connect the arts to their contexts in the world – on stage, in studios and theaters, in classrooms, in museums and galleries, on the streets and in communities.We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia.  Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. More information on their web site.
