    How to give a job talk

    Mon, 11/03/2019 (All day)

    Location: 

    The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mount Scopus, Mandel Building, Room 521

    The premise of my presentation is simple: everyone can give a good talk. A talk, however, is a multifaceted challenge. In my short presentation (20-30 minutes) I will touch upon some of the global elements that are at our disposal when we prepare and deliver a great talk. Of the several elements, I will offer an outlook that provides concrete tools for setting the right tone for your talk. In addition, I will discuss ways to practice and provide constructive feedback for (practice) talks.

    Colloquium with Dr. Moshe Blidstein

    Thu, 28/02/2019 (All day)

    The body – its practices, construction, discourses and habitus – is a central focus of the humanities in general in the past decades. This is no less true for ancient history, where the body is central in many discourses – ritual, political, mythical, emotional, medical, astrological, philosophical, etc.

    Proclus on Selfhood as the First Principle - A colloquium qith Antonio Vargas

    Mon, 17/12/2018 (All day)

    Location: 

    The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mount Scopus, Mandel Building, Room 521
    In his talk, Antonio Vargas presented his research into the Neoplatonist Proclus, a Greek philosopher from the 5th century A.D., as an introduction to the field of history of philosophy and of one particular way of understanding the field, namely as the archaeology of ideal objects. Archaeology, because the goal is not to produce a narrative, but to recover an object, such as a system, argument, thesis or concept, and the archaelogy of ideal objects, because these are ideal objects akin to mathematical ones, not concrete objects such as pottery.
  • Then I saw… Worshipping gods on stage in South India - Colloquium with Elena Mucciarelli

    Location: 

    The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mount Scopus, Mandel Building, Room 521
    Mon, 03/12/2018 - 10:00 to 14:45

    Elena Mucciarelli presented a key-study in the analysis of the interrelation between theater and ritual. Trying to qualify these different modalities of reality, she focused on a peculiar ritual that is observed by the Brahmins, the priestly group, of Kerala, in South India. All other castes are not allowed to practice it. The peculiarity of this ritual lies in the fact that it is also enacted on stage during some Kūṭiyāṭṭam theater performances.

    Joint Workshop with the Zukunftskollege, Konstanz

    Tue, 27/11/2018 (All day) to Thu, 29/11/2018 (All day)

    At the end of November 2018, nine fellows from the Zukunftskolleg Konstanz came to Jerusalem for the Second International Workshop together with the Martin Buber Society of Fellows. The topic of the workshop, “Un/Certainty Reconsidered”, suggested the theme of uncertainty as a common thread that would allow the various disciplines to enter into dialogue. Indeed, the nine fellows from Konstanz and ten fellows from Buber represented a broad range of academic investigation: linguistics, neuroscience, drama, literature, biology, history, chemistry, and sociology.
