Join us in person or on Zoom for a seminar with Dr. Michael Figueroa, associate professor of music at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill. This lecture concerns commemorative song and commemorative landscape in Jerusalem, discussing how music and monuments work in tandem to narrate past violence from the early statehood period (c. 1948–1967).

The exposition will include contemporary covers and parodies of memorial repertory (such as Haim Gouri’s “Bab El Wad,” 1949 and Yoram Taharlev’s “Ammunition Hill,” 1968) to illuminate how bereavement has emerged in the twenty-first century as a site of political debate.

This presentation is part of the Schusterman Seminars series—advanced seminars geared toward faculty and graduate students—and open to all, presenting the latest research in Israel Studies to the Schusterman Center community and beyond. To see the fall lineup, please visit their website.

This is a “brown bag” event. You are welcome to bring your lunch. Beverages and snacks will be provided. For specific directions, here is the campus map.
