“Phoenix Jewish Documentary Film Series”

The Phoenix Jewish Documentary Films Series is an original project developed by the Arizona Jewish Historical Society in conjunction with their mission to educate the Arizona public about Jewish history and culture. Films all pertain to Jewish history or culture, and are selected by a screening committee on the basis of their educational, cultural and entertainment value. All films are shown free to the public and screenings are held at 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month barring special scheduling conflicts and are followed by audience discussion led by humanities scholars.

“Beyond Boundaries”

Beyond Boundaries provides students, faculty, and community members with the opportunity to experience, collaborate, make media and discuss border crossings and disruptions, decolonial praxis, identity, and community formations across multiple borderlands. Conceived as a campus-community initiative, Beyond Boundaries brings speakers, activists, media makers, and artists to Northern Arizona University campus and local community host sites with the hopes of inciting dialogue, transformation and creating the possibilities for shifting research paradigms. The proposed Spring 2016 series will highlight speakers whose work examines the intersections of indigeneity, identity, language and experience.
