The Deaf Community in Israel: Tami Assouline in Conversation with Professor Marco Di Giulio
Hosted By: Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University
The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies invites you to discover the dynamic culture of Israel’s deaf community. This event is part of the “Performing Disability in Israel” series, and is held in conjunction with Professor Ilana Szobel’s groundbreaking course, “Disability Cultures: Art, Film and Literature of People with Disabilities.” Free and open to all.
In her performances, Israeli Deaf poet Tami Assouline rejects the hegemony of the spoken word and describes her poetry as “a purely visual work of art—an expression of my movement and freedom in my own language.” Removed from the strictures of Hebrew, her creative work explores such themes as love, grief, and the sensuality of the body.
Tami will perform her poetry and will discuss, together with Dr. Marco Di Giulio, the history, memory, and identity of the Israeli Deaf community. Live captions will be available.
