CISA LAUNCHES COURSES ONLINE AND IN CITY

By Dr. Catherine Chatterley

CISA Online Academy

CISA has launched its new online academy with a course on The Holocaust, 1933-1945.

The course examines the Holocaust within the context of modern German history and as a culmination of the millennial phenomenon of antisemitism. The focus of study will be on the outcome of the First World War and its impact on the German psyche, Adolf Hitler and his ideology, the rise of the Nazi party and its immediate assault on the Jews of Germany, the general outline of World War II and the evolution of Hitler's Final Solution to the Jewish Question. The course concludes with discussions about the process of "liberation" and the rise of Zionist consciousness in Displaced Persons camps after the war.

CISA’s new online platform will allow Canadians, and English-speakers across the globe, to study subjects related to antisemitism, the Holocaust, and human rights at their own pace, in a location of their choice, and on any device.

New Fall Course in Winnipeg

This fall, Dr. Deborah Schnitzer is teaching a literature & creative writing course for CISA entitled Writing The Difficult. She invites course members to explore critically and creatively “difficult knowledge” as represented in writings about Antisemitism and the Holocaust particularly, though course material may examine exclusionary and life-denying practices within related Human Rights contexts.
 
The second half of each two hour class will offer a creative writing workshop that will introduce writing strategies and structures that respond to course readings, as well as to the classroom community. These workshops are designed to support participants as they discover and refine creative forms of expression that embody this exploration and experience.
 
Course members are encouraged to bring memorabilia and writings that contribute to course readings, classroom discussion, and our shared creative process. 

Course readings include, among others, brief selections from work by Charlotte Delbo, Paul Celan, Imre Kertesz, Primo Levi, Carol Matas, Anne Michaels, Cynthia Ozick, Maurice Sendak, Art Spiegelman, and Elie Wiesel.

Winnipeg: October 26 to December 14, 2014

Advance registration is required. Seating for this course will be limited to 20 students.

For registration & information: canisa.org
