Israeli Hebrew course to be offered for spring

A new Hebrew course, Israeli Hebrew for Heritage Speakers, will be offered on Tuesdays from 3:05 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. in the spring semester. This course is designed to develop the Israeli communication skills of semi-native heritage speakers of Israeli, bilinguals and South-American Israeli-Spanish or Israeli-Portuguese bilinguals, who have received little formal education in the Israeli language This course will also strengthen their speaking, writing, reading and listening abilities through learning about Israeli style and idioms, contemporary slang, recent grammatical developments, literature, music, film, newspapers, politics, lexicology and other aspects of the language. The course emphasizes oral communication and is conducted in Israeli. For more information, contact Dr. Ghil’ad Zuckermann at 305-284-8561 or gz@miami.edu.

Course teaches about German exiles in WWII

Do you need a humanities credit? Need a writing credit? Consider taking GER 310, Voices from Abroad: German Exile Culture, 1933-1990. What happens when people are forced to leave their homeland for an unknown place – with an unfamiliar language, new traditions and none of the family and friends they once knew? Can they still call their birthplace home, even after its government or people demanded that they leave it for good? When Hitler took power in 1933, scores of authors, painters and filmmakers were among those forced out of Germany and Austria and into exile. Jews, Communists and others persecuted by the Nazis fled for their lives, scattering themselves around the globe. From Palestine to New York, Sao Paulo to Shanghai and Cuba to Auckland, these artists struggled to continue their work in often unfamiliar, alienating, lonely and impoverished circumstances. This course will examine the works and lives that bear witness to this struggle to survive. Course and texts are in English. For further information, contact Dr. Michele Ricci at mricci@miami.edu.
