IN SEARCH OF ISRAELI CUISINE
The first film in this year’s Cathy and Morris
Bart Jewish Cultural Arts Series, In Search of
Israeli Cuisine is a portrait of the Israeli people
told through food. The feature length
documentary puts a face on the culture of
Israel, profiling chefs, home cooks, vintners,
and cheese-makers drawn from the more than
one hundred cultures that make up Israel
today – Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze.
A rich and human story of the people emerges.
Not only can a good meal soothe a grumbling
stomach, it might well change the world!

MORRIS BART SR., LECTURE
SERIES AT THE J
THE ORIENTAL SOUTH: THE
ENSLAVED MIXED-RACE BEAUTY
IN BRITISH ART AFTER 1865
In 1868, three years after the end of the
American Civil War and the abolition of slavery,
fashionable British sculptor John Bell debuted
his work The Octoroon at the annual Royal
Academy exhibition in London. An unclothed,
alabaster beauty with dainty wrists bound in
chains, Bell’s sculpture represented a mixedrace slave girl from Louisiana. Like previous
nude marble sculptures of lovely female
captives, most notably Hiram Powers’ Greek
Slave, The Octoroon ostensibly aimed to inspire
the Victorian viewers beyond their erotic
impulses to the highest echelons of moral and
aesthetic contemplation. However, in this case,
racial difference made all the difference. The
“exotic” racial identity of Bell’s sculpture –
seven parts white, the last eight black – could
prompt viewers to read cold, white marble as
hot, sensuous flesh! Using Bell’s The Octoroon
as a case study, but attending to other examples as well, this talk by Mia Bagneris, Assistant Professor of History of Art at Tulane, will
explore the faddish fascination with beautiful,
light-skinned slave girls in British Victorian
culture, especially after the abolition of slavery
made the political mobilization of such figures
moot. Lunch will be served. RSVP by Thursday,
September 8 to Rachel Ruth at 897-0143 or
[email protected]

is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes
stretching across Europe and coming together
at the tomb of St. James (Santiago in Spanish)
in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain.
A light lunch will be served. RSVP by Monday,
