This course explores the connections between the ritual performance of

Jewish texts and social change across Jewish history, and focuses on
three related topics: the rise of Kabbalistic nocturnal rituals in the Italian
ghettos during the early-modern period; the performance of Hebrew
poetry in North Africa and the middle East in the modern era; and the
renaissance of piyyut (Hebrew liturgical poetry) in Israel from the 1970s to
the present, from the singing of bakkashot among Syrian and Moroccan
Israelis to the current transcultural activities of online and participatory
communities. The course will also feature in-depth work in collaboration
with Jerusalem-based artist, Victoria Hanna, a world-renowned
composer, creator, performer, researcher, and teacher of voice and
language (victoriahanna.net).
