The biblical story of Noah and his generation tells of a great catastrophe that human beings bring upon themselves, and enables a glimpse into responses to cataclysmic crises – from early warnings to after-the-fact recovery. Noah and his neighbors’ widely disparate perceptions of reality, the sheer hard work of survival within the ark, the difficulty of taking first steps down the ramp after the flood – all seem strangely familiar in these days of the COVID-19 crisis.
This two-part elective with Sigalit Ur will explore the flood story and its interpretations – traditional, visual, and poetic.
Session one takes place on Mon, November 9
