Jewish Identity Through the Lens of Modern History
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. One side of the coin promised security, acceptance, and affluence with the escape from anti-Semitism and discrimination, while the other threatened assimilation, confusion of loyalties, and the possibility of disappearing as a people. In To Be a Jew in the Free World, we examine the personal and religious struggles that individuals and communities confronted as they faced the challenges of changing times: stories that provoke debate and shed insight into what it means to live as a Jew today. January 27 - Once a Jew, Forever a Jew February 10 - Freedom for All March 17 - Judaism of Our Choosing April 28 - Anti-Semitism-free Jewish Identity Rabbi Hesh Epstein has been the Executive Director of Chabad Lubavitch of South Carolina since 1987. His evening courses have become a regular and popular fixture of our Jewish Studies community education offerings.

The Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services will honor the accomplishments of graduating seniors at the 4th Annual Nia Rite of Passage Celebration. The ceremony will be held Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the Theodore S. Stern Student Center Ballroom. Nia, the Swahili term for purpose, means “to make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.” The program honored not only the graduates, but also those that helped them to get where they are today, including parents, family, and loved ones while reminding us “to whom much is given, much is required.” “We wanted to provide a celebration that is representative of African American and African tradition, heritage, culture, and legacy and reaffirm the campus and community’s commitment to encourage and support students,” says Teresa Smith, director of the Office of Multicultural Student Programs and Services. “This ceremony marks a tradition of valuing our cultural offerings to the College and beyond. This program is a celebration of this philosophy, and reinforces the bonds of scholarship, and extends the sense of community that was created from the time the students first arrived on campus.” The “Nia” principle encourages citizens to commit themselves to the glorious duty of restoring families, neighborhoods, and people to their historical greatness. As a life-long member of the College of Charleston family, through the Nia Rite of Passage Celebration, graduates will be charged to do the same.

New Student Convocation
10:00 AM

Convocation is an annual celebration at which students and faculty gather to celebrate the official opening of the scholastic year. Originally, “convocation” meant a gathering of the clergy or the divisions of a diocese; however, at the College of Charleston, the word and the event have evolved from their ecclesiastical roots to embrace the intellectual community as well. The College’s convocation welcomes new students to the liberal arts and sciences community and encourages them to consider their own intellectual journey through small group conversations with individual faculty. This occasion also serves to familiarize incoming students with the College’s academic traditions as well as the institution’s history, symbols and mottos. As part of convocation, faculty lead students through the arch at Porters Lodge and convene in the Cistern Yard as a new community of scholars. Students officially sign "the book." The inscription on that historic arch reads (in Greek) "Know Thyself."

Curious Tales of the Talmud
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Main Campus - Jewish Studies Center - (Arnold Hall)

The Talmud’s role as a primary source of Jewish law can obscure its value as a literary treasure. The stories in the Talmud reveal an imaginative richness that is a crucial part of the interpretation and preservation of a treasured culture. The course will draw upon the wisdom contained in hundreds of volumes of post-Talmudic literature. It is predicated on the understanding that the Talmud employed cryptic stories and parables to relay relevant and profound messages in a way that makes the reader an active partner in decoding the text and constructing its meaning. Written in esoteric language, these stories couch within them penetrating insights into life, our universe, God, humankind—and how they all come together.

Main Campus - Simons Center - (Robinson Theatre)

Playwright Tom Stoppard’s (Aracadia, and the film - Shakespeare in Love) modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is an absurdly comical examination of the misadventures of two minor characters in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Structured as the inverse of Shakespeare’s play, the title characters are the leads and Hamlet becomes the smaller role, this “Laurel and Hardy-like” duo largely appear while they are “off-stage” in Hamlet and while there they grapple cleverly and comically with life’s fundamental questions.

Herb Parker: Studio Practice and Joseph Burwell: School of the Viking Spaniard Revisited
The stereotypical image of the artist’s studio as a paint-splattered, sparsely furnished garret where the lone artist toils away producing their brilliant works is in much need of re-examination. Many artists’ studios are a far cry from this description, and serve very different functions for their inhabitants. This exhibition will examine the relationship between the studio and the work produced within it by two contemporary artists who will recreate their studio spaces within the Halsey Institute’s galleries.
