Modern Israel Studies Courses for Spring

IU students have a special opportunity in Spring 2008 to take two courses on modern Israel Studies - “The Arab-Israeli Conflict,” and “Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Israel,” taught by Rosenbloom Visiting Scholar, Professor Daphne Tsimhoni, Department of Humanities and Arts, The Technion and The Harry S. Truman Institute, Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Professor Tsimhoni is the author of The Christian Communities in Jerusalem and the West Bank since 1948: An Historical, Social, and Political Study. She is currently writing The Jews of Modern Iraq 1921-1952. She taught recently in the U.S. at Knox College.


JSTU-J 204 Social & Historical Topics in Jewish Studies (3 cr.) Daphne Tsimhoni
Topic: The Arab-Israeli Conflict
TR 4:00-5:30

Important note: This course will begin on Tuesday, January 29 so there will be no free drop period.

Since its inception, the Arab-Israeli conflict has dominated the political agenda and many aspects of life in Israel, the Middle East, and beyond. This course will introduce the students to the origins of the conflict in the late nineteenth century, the British pledge for a Jewish national home and the British mandate for Palestine, the development of the conflict from a local to a regional one, involving the Arab states. We will study the establishment of the State of Israel, the 1948 war and the creation of the Palestinian problem in its various aspects; both the 1956 Suez war and the Six Days 1967 war and their impact on Israel and the Middle East.

We will discuss the emergence of the PLO and the Palestinian organizations, the first Lebanon war, the road to the first Palestinian uprising (intifada), and to the peace accords. We will conclude by discussing the wars and the prospects for peace.

The course will be based on historical studies, various documentation, documentary films, and websites.

Course requirements: two midterm take-home exams and a final essay.


JSTU-J 304 Social & Historical Topics in Jewish Studies/3 cr./ Daphne Tsimhoni
Topic: Jews, Muslims, & Christians in Israel #25561
TR 6:30-8:00

Important note: This course will begin on Tuesday, January 29 so there will be no free drop period.

Established as the nation state of the Jewish people, Israel has an ethno-religious, socioculturally diverse population. This course will introduce students to this diversity and its impact on Israeli politics and society. We will explore the historical origins of this complexity: The religious significance of the Holy Land, the preservation of Ottoman and British mandatory traditions, the 1948 war and the mass immigration to Israel from Europe and the Middle East. We will examine the socio-cultural and religious diversity within the Jewish majority that extends far beyond the common division between western European (Ashkenazim) and Middle Eastern (Mizrahim) and the Palestinian Arab minority that is no less complex and includes Muslims, Christians, Druze and smaller communities.

Based on socio-historical research and documentaries, we will discuss the following issues: Is the breach between the Jewish majority and the Palestinian Arab minority in Israel bridgeable? Is there a 'demographic issue' in Israel? and if so, what is its impact on Israeli politics? Who are the 'Arab Jews'? Can they form a bridge between Jews and Arabs? Is there an Israeli identity? What are its components?

Course requirements: two midterm take-home exams and a final essay.
Fulfills: Jewish Studies History & Society course or Religion & Thought course; S&H

Fulfills College A&H Credit
Fulfills College Cultural Studies A Credit

This upper-level, interdisciplinary course explores the history of violence, particularly interethnic violence, and its representation in two distinct, but interrelated geographical contexts, the United States and the Balkan Peninsula. Readings will address 1) the history of culture and conflict in both contexts and 2) critical approaches to the questions of violence and human progress. This historical and critical background will serve as a foundation for discussing a variety of films including: John Ford’s Fort Apache, Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch, Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather, Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine, Emir Kusturica’s Underground and Black Cat, White Cat, Danis Tanovic’s No Man’s Land, Milcho Manchevsky’s Before the Rain and Dust, Pantelis Voulgaris’s All Is Road, Dinos Katsouridis’s What Did You Do in the War, Thanassis?, and Theo Angelopoulos’s The Travelling Players. Discussion topics include:

* the American fascination with the Balkans as an other space and Balkan violence as an other means to social ends

* the relationship of violence to economics and the different strategies that Balkan and American directors employ to represent this relationship

* the role of Hollywood in the Balkan cinematic imagination

* the mythologization of violence in the western and gangster film

* the relationship of violence and critique to social and cultural change

* and, most importantly, the critical implications of the different strategies for representing and aestheticizing violence that are employed in Hollywood and Balkan cinema.

Grades for this course will be based on class participation, two papers, and a number of quizzes. In addition to attending lectures, students will be expected to attend a weekly screening.

Public Service Academy Presentation


Chris Myers Asch, Co-founder of the U.S. Public Service Academy, will speak to Indiana University students and interested community members at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30th, in the Psychology Building, E. 10th Street, Room 109 The talk is being sponsored at IU by the program in Leadership, Ethics, and Social Action in the Dept of Political Science and by the American Humanics student organization.

We hope you will attend and share some refreshments (pizza will be served at 6:45).

Asch and Shawn Raymond (fellow Teach For America alumnus) launched the initiative to build the U.S. Public Service Academy in response to the breakdown of public institutions following Hurricane Katrina. Public Service Academy would offer a federally-subsidized four-year college education to more than 5,000 students in return for five years of civilian service in education, health care, emergency management, or other public sector fields at the local, state, and national levels.

The movement to build the Academy has reached Congress with the sponsorship of Democratic and Republican legislators. It also has earned the endorsement of numerous organizations, including City Year, the National Peace Corps Association, and the U.S. Student Association, as well as prominent individuals such as Madeleine Albright, Lee Hamilton, and three former superintendents of West Point. In its September 10 cover story on national service, Time magazine listed the Public Service Academy as one of the top ten ideas the next president should embrace to reinvigorate civic life.

Underground/City Lights Film Series

This week is our spooky Halloween screening of puppet animations sure to entertain and frighten.

Friday, October 26th
Radio-TV 251

For the weekend before Halloween, we'll be presenting haunting, charming, sublime and grotesque animations from master Czech animator Jan Svankmajer, whose stop-motion work recalls surrealism, childhood, horror and comedy. In addition, we'll be screening several shorts by the Brothers Quay, who acknowledge a debt to Svankmajer, but who nonetheless have their own unique approach to doll-based animation that shares much in tone with Svankmajer's work while striking out in other directions.

The underground film series is sponsored by Indiana University's Department of Communication and Culture. All screenings are on alternating Fridays at 7 p.m. in room 251 of the Radio-TV building on the IU campus. All screenings are free and open to the public, and free parking is ample in the lot adjacent to the building, provided you clearly display an underground flyer on the dashboard of your vehicle.

“The Dark Side of the Universe” on Tuesday, October 23, 2007
What is the universe made of? Recent observations suggest surprising new results. Not only most of the matter in the universe is dark and unconventional (non-baryonic) but, more surprisingly, the major component of the universe may be in the form of 'dark energy'—a form of energy that opposes the pull of gravity and causes the expansion of the universe to accelerate. By combining recent observations of clusters of galaxies, distant supernovae, and the cosmic microwave background radiation, we find evidence for an unexpected universe—one that has only 5% 'normal' matter, 20% dark matter, and 75% 'dark energy.' The observations indicate a universe that is lightweight, with sub-critical mass-density, and is dominated by a yet unknown 'dark-energy.' The observations and implications of the dark side of the universe will be discussed.

“Will the Universe Expand Forever?” on Thursday, October 25, 2007
What is the ultimate fate of the universe—will it expand forever or will it eventually collapse in a ‘Big Crunch’? The answer to this fundamental question depends on two critical observations: How much matter or gravity exists in the universe? And, does the universe contain other forms of energy that affect its expansion? Answers to these questions will reveal not only the fate of our universe but will also shed light on the evolution of the universe since the Big-Bang. Combining recent observations of different sources we find evidence that we live in a surprisingly lightweight universe, with mass-density well below the critical density needed to halt the universal expansion. Furthermore, the observations suggest that the expansion rate of the universe is not slowing down as expected if only matter exists in the universe; rather, the expansion appears to be speeding up! This suggests the existence of additional energy that opposes the attractive pull of gravity. The combined observations suggest a universe that will expand forever, growing ever larger, colder, and darker.

CFA Media Relations

Cinephile Film Arts Organization awards grants to Indiana filmmakers

Bloomington, IN, September 2007 – Cinephile Film Arts (CFA) is sponsoring their third annual CFA Grant Program to help fund independent film and video projects in Indiana. This is the only privately funded annual film grant program in the state, and since 2004, Cinephile has given $3000 to area filmmakers, with plans to increase the amount and number of grants each year.

Grants will be awarded based on presentation and uniqueness of the projects, and recipients will receive a slot in the third annual Indiana Festival of Independent Film to be held at the historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington, Indiana on February 16, 2008. Notes indie filmmaker Arthur Cullipher, “having someone give you money to make a movie is really awesome. Even a little extra can make a big difference.”

The deadline for applying for a grant is Friday, November 9, 2007. The grant application is available online at

CFA is a Bloomington, IN based non-profit media arts organization that began more than three years ago as a means for individuals interested in independent filmmaking to connect. Participants have included actors, writers, directors, composers, make-up artists, and film buffs. CFA provides an environment for creative community, education, and material and monetary support for Indiana filmmakers.

Anyone interested in applying for a grant, or anyone who is interested in learning more about CFA can contact David E. W. Pruett, Executive Director at 812.325.0183 or or visit

Interesting Course for Spring: CMLT-C 151 Introduction to Popular Culture

CMLT-C 151 Introduction to Popular Culture
Smart Mobs & Beyond:
How the Cult of the Amateur Hacks Authority, Story-telling, and Culture

Section 6262 TR 11:15-12:30 BH 144

Please note that this course is being offered by Comparative Literature, not CMCL. It does not count toward the CMCL major or minor. If you are a CMCL major and you take this course, it will merely count as an elective within the College of Arts and Sciences.

We’re at the brink of yet another digital revolution. The World Wide Web is no longer a mere collection of Web sites readily consumable by its users as it had been in the early 90s. Rather, it is becoming a full-fledged platform serving Web applications to its end users. Flickr, MySpace, Wikipedia, Facebook, YouTube, Google, Second Life, Twitter, and others are examples of such Web applications that we use everyday; and they all rely on one thing: user-generated content. O’Reilly calls them Web 2.0, these days they are called social media, yet others know them as networking sites. The companies that created these applications are worth millions of dollars because of the content YOU generate. What is their killer application? The communities that they help build. They are easy to get involved in and are impossible to leave… Whatever their name is, they do the same thing: facilitate mass collaboration and peer production in order to solve problems, build virtual worlds, disseminate information, run political campaigns, write stories, and shoot movies. As such, they pose a serious threat to everything we knew to be true about literature and media. Concepts like authority, hierarchy, and a top-to-bottom approach are being challenged and replaced with more decentralized models. Those who are able to harness the power of the masses will have a place in the future, and those who don’t will wither away.

As a result, culture itself is undergoing a significant transformation. Think about it: Stephen Colbert uses Wikipedia, YouTube, and the mainstream media in order to mobilize the masses to offer a serious critique of our culture. Even Hollywood is aware of this power. Samuel Jackson’s cult movie, Snakes on a Plane, relied on its audience to help with script writing and marketing. Lonelygirl15 showed how one could become an Internet celebrity through the use of viral videos published on YouTube, Revver, and MySpace. Additionally, communities have started Alternate Reality Games (ARGs) surrounding Lonelygirl15 where users piece together clues found in the videos and try to solve the mystery behind Bree (the main character). While Andrew Keen condemns this transformation, claiming that Internet is killing our culture, others, such as Henry Jenkins and Howard Rheingold, see it as a positive development.

This course will include theoretical readings that will facilitate discussions around these topics in order to help the participants better understand today’s popular culture while evaluating its impact on mainstream culture. In addition to theoretical readings, students will be required to listen to assigned podcasts, watch selected online videos, participate in the forums of the class Wiki where they will discuss class readings, and blog on a weekly basis. Some of the fiction we will read in class will include selections from Exit Strategy (Douglas Rushkoff’s open-source novel), Shelley Jackson’s hypertext novel, Patchwork Girl, and blog posts from LG15 site. There will be two term papers.

Humana is Hiring

Humana is coming to campus to hire for a wide range of positions ranging from corporate communications, to human resources, to marketing, to financial operations and auditing. Positions are open nation-wide as well as international. Hurry and sign up on for your interview; the deadline is October 14th. Please see descriptions below.

Info Session:
Tuesday, October 23, 2007, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM; Career Development Center (10th and Jordan)

Humana: – we're more than a health benefits company.
We're a group of people with a unique state of mind.

Why? Because when our consumers aren't thinking about their health benefits, we are. We're committed to developing state-of-the-art products, services, and technologies – so when consumers have to think about their health benefits, they have confidence and peace of mind to make informed decisions.

Department Descriptions

Corporate Communications
Think you’d enjoy working with the media? Then Corporate Communications could be your team. Help to develop messaging and programs to drive sales; benchmark our communications successes; or draft communications for members, providers, brokers, employer groups, and your fellow Humana associates.

Human Resources
At Humana, Human Resources is at the leadership table—driving strategy, programs, and processes impacting our 23,000+ associates. And since many of our products are piloted internally, HR plays a key role in company strategy and product development. This team is responsible for the associate experience as a whole. This includes associate engagement, ensuring operations aligned to the values and purpose of Humana, leveraging human capital, building a winning culture, and driving organizational effectiveness. Infusion candidates have the opportunity to join any one of HR’s diverse departments including (but not limited to!): HR Communications, Learning, Leadership Development, Talent Acquisition, and Compensation.

Innovation Center
If you like change and forward thinking, check out the Innovation Center. This group drives product design, creates ways to improve the consumer experience, oversees research and analytics, and identifies growth opportunities and business partnerships, domestically and internationally. Innovation enables Humana to be a global leader in health behavior change by creating products and services that enable individuals to take control over their health care.

Critical to the success and sale of our products and services, Humana’s Marketing department is responsible for articulating our brand message through every touchpoint with our customers, consumers and partners. Here you will find strategists, writers, project managers, researchers, graphic artists, Internet experts, and print production specialists working to determine whether a product will sell and who is likely to buy it. On this team, Infusion participants will be using their creativity and a keen eye for detail to contribute to Marketing’s smaller teams for Sales Support, Consumer Communication, the Web, Field Marketing, Senior Products, and more.

As an actuary, you are responsible for coming up with premium rate formulas based on geographical location, prior claims experience, age/sex demographics and industry and determining policy rates, reserves, and dividends.

Clinical Guidance Organization
The Clinical Guidance Organization guides consumers to effective use of healthcare, resulting in improved outcomes and health and lower costs; to increase consumer confidence in their ability to navigate the healthcare system, use their benefits effectively, and become engaged in managing their own health; and to increase trust in Humana as a resource and partner to our members in their efforts to take a more active role. We create and deliver programs, services and tools that provide consumers with choice, transparency, independence and guidance in their health and healthcare decisions, delivering results that simultaneously satisfy the needs of our business customers.

Provider Networking Contracting
Provider Network Contracting is an integral part of Humana’s product development and sales initiatives. This team is responsible for negotiating provider fee arrangements with healthcare providers, with the goal of offering Humana members and associates a broad and deep network of care providers at reasonable discounts. Provider Contractors focus on the scope of our network, the effectiveness of the care provided, and the clarity and ease of use for our members. If you enjoy relationship building, negotiations, and analytics, here’s your opportunity. You’ll gain deep exposure to such groups as Network Operations, Sales, Clinical, and more to gain an integrated understanding of the business. Your first year with this group will be a combination of training and hands-on experience. Through the Contracting University program you will receive coaching on executive image, negotiation, etc. – a foundation for a spectacular career.

Corporate Development/Mergers & Acquisitions
The Corporate Development / Mergers & Acquisitions department evaluates potential investments and combinations, both strategic and financial, with the goal of advancing the mission of Humana and its partners. Associates are expected to stay abreast of changes in the marketplace and identify opportunities for development. Financial and strategic analyses, as well as communication with senior management and investment professionals, are performed daily to evaluate opportunities and advise appropriately. Potential candidates often possess a background in finance, accounting, or corporate strategy, and exhibit an attention to detail and intellectual honesty.

Corporate Proposal Center
As part of the front-end of the sales process, the Corporate Proposal Center completes Requests for Information (RFI) and Requests for Proposal (RFP) for commercial groups which have over 300 members and group Medicare. The Corporate Proposal Center partners closely with Humana's sales team, underwriting, pharmacy, and clinical areas to offer the most competitive proposal possible while serving as a liaison for all departments involved in the proposal process. In addition, the Corporate Proposal Center is responsible for developing and assembling the finished product that is delivered to potential customers.

Financial Operations
The Financial Operations department is structured in teams of individuals who provide financial reporting and support to field office operations. The team reports financial results from field offices to Humana’s senior management. Finance also supports in matters associated with new product offerings, development of pricing for products, evaluating provider networks and contracts, etc. As a financial analyst with this group, you would develop and utilize analytical tools to identify key operating metrics, identify cost trends and recommend corrective actions, and more.

Internal Audit
Infusion candidates looking to work in the Internal Audit department have a unique opportunity to see how all of the departments and components of Humana Inc. work together. They will become the company experts on Humana’s various systems, processes, and procedures—making them an invaluable resource for the communication of best practices and the resolution of business issues. By joining Internal Audit, you will examine selected processes or approaches that may cause risk to the company and evaluate them for continued use.

Information Technology
Humana’s IT department provides the technology expertise for business applications, as well as project management services for major initiatives to deliver projects on time and within budget. This group also provides security governance to the company—protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Humana’s business, technical, and customer information. Those who take on IT Project Manager roles facilitate, mentor, coach, educate, and consult throughout the organization. The IT department is looking for individuals with excellent prioritization and management skills, as well as technical expertise.

Product Development
The Product Development team aggressively pursues new product ideas that support the core strategic direction of Humana. Humana relies on them to identify and develop new ideas for products and services to offer members and associates. The Product Development team is looking for individuals with high energy and focus to work with internal departments and external vendors in order to create the next best thing to keep Humana strong.

Service Operations/Account Installation
This department offers more to associates and members than the traditional customer service organization. This team manages a full spectrum of service functions to achieve the goal of providing guidance and perfect service. When you join Service Operations or Account Installation, you will help set up customer accounts, manage the renewal process, build solutions to help members choose the right benefit plans for their needs, process enrollment, reconcile accounts, and more. If you want to be sure customers get the service they deserve, this could be a great place for you.

Strategic Consultancy
This group provides direction and project expertise for our customers as they plan, prioritize, and implement Humana’s mission-critical initiatives. This team plays a key role in affirming and validating the appropriate execution of Humana’s strategy. Our talented group of consultants helps to initiate and plan the strategic efforts, oversee the plan’s implementation, and assists in closing the project upon completion. To be successful in Strategic Consulting, we encourage associates to be engaged in exploring all possibilities of a project. We look for candidates with variety in their academic and professional backgrounds.

Large Group Underwriting
This group proposes rate fees appropriate for a client’s risk and in-line with the profit objectives of Humana. We evaluate competitive data, anticipate and react to changing market conditions, and add value with consulting and competitive strategies. We evaluate risks and determine adverse selections (quote or decline) and establish competitive rates and service fees. Large Group Underwriting focuses on balance of competitive sales results & profitable growth. As an underwriter, your role would be to ensure there is a reasonable spread of risk among covered members, that the rate is consistent with the risk, and that the premiums are competitive and profitable.

Automatic-W Deadline for Full-Semester Classes

The deadline for dropping full-semester classes with an automatic grade of W is Wednesday, October 24th.

If you are dropping a class and NOT adding a second eight week course to replace it, then you can drop the class on Onestart using the eDrop system. Just click on "drop/add classes" from the self-service page and follow the instructions.

There are a couple of different scenarios for students who are dropping a class and adding a second eight week course to replace it:

1. if you will drop to part-time status when you drop the class (fewer than 12 credit hours), you will have to use the paper late drop/add slip to drop and add the classes. If you drop the class online and fall to part time, you will incur very large fees if you subsequently add a class to go back to full time. If you are on the full time/part time border, USE THE PAPER DROP/ADD SLIP TO AVOID FEES. The slips are available in the Recorder's Office in Kirkwood Hall 001.

2. if you will NOT drop to part-time status when you drop the class (fewer than 12 credit hours), you can go ahead and drop the class using the eDrop system. You cannot add second eight week classes online - for that, you must pick up a late add slip from the Recorder's Office in Kirkwood Hall 001.

David Sedaris Speech and Book Signing

Every generation needs its literary rock stars. The 60s had Capote. The 70s had Hunter S. We have David Sedaris.

Sedaris, a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Esquire, aswell as his collection of essays – Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, and Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denim, has made himself a permanent fixture on the literary charts. Sedaris’ sardonic humor and self-reflexive tales of awkwardness have made him one of America’s comedic treasures.

Sedaris is frequently heard on This American Life and in 2001 received the Thurber Prize for American Humor and was named “Time” humorist of the year. An evening with Sedaris is an evening full of the dry wit and humorous tales that have filled sold-out theatres from coast to coast.

Registration Reminders

This is just a reminder that spring registration is right around the corner. Early registration will begin on Thursday, October 18. The first couple of days of registration will probably be open only to graduate students, so seniors can expect to start registering during the week of October 22.

Individual registration appointments have not yet been assigned, but they should be set very soon (hopefully either today or tomorrow). Keep checking Onestart for your date and time. Keep in mind that the date and time listed is merely the earliest possible time that you will be allowed to register. You can register any time after that day and time.

While you are not required to meet with an advisor before registering, I strongly recommend that you meet with either me or Amy to discuss your spring schedule. We will both be busy during the registration rush, so please call to make an appointment well before your registration date. To schedule a meeting with either of us, call our departmental secretary at 855-7217. If no one answers, feel free to leave a message and someone will get back with you shortly.

You can also try to set up a meeting with me over e-mail, but please be sure to let me know 3-4 specific days and times when you are available.

For students currently studying overseas who would like guidance on fall course selection, feel free to contact me via e-mail (

Even if you don’t set up an advising appointment, please stop by the new CMCL building (800 E. 3rd St.) to pick up a copy of the booklet containing CMCL spring course descriptions. Booklets should be available sometime on Wednesday—-I will make another post when they are ready.

I find that the Registrar’s Schedule of Classes is much more conducive to course browsing than the Schedule of Classes on OneStart; here’s the link to the Registrar’s class listings for the spring:

Course descriptions will also be available online at Most CMCL course descriptions are now online. All CMCL descriptions should be online by the middle of the week.
