All Day Sukkot (Multi-Day Event)

Jewish holyday: Sukkot (the Festival of the Huts) takes place 5 days after Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and commemorates the 40 year period that the Jewish people wandered in the desert after their enslavement in Egypt, during which Moses was given the Torah on Mt. Sinai and they lived in temporary shelters. The Season of Our Rejoicing, as it is also known, is celebrated by building asukkah (hut) that Jews make their “home,” where they eat, entertain, and sometimes even sleep for the 7 day festival,in thanksgiving for G-d’s protection and the harvest.[i]  

[i] Reform Judaism. “Sukkot.”

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Book Talk-- Theatre of the Borderlands: Conflict, Violence, and Healing
Speaker: Iani Moreno

Professor Moreno will discuss her recently published book which focuses on how dramatists from the Northern Mexico border territories write about theater. The northern border playwrights included in the study present the US-Mexico borderlands in a socio-historical and political context and include discussions of: the indigenous, border crossings, heroes and folk saints, the city of Tijuana, and violence in the borderlands. These themes have led to the birth of the Teatro del Norte movement, a group of determined playwrights insistent on presenting dramaturgical themes that show the bond between their particular geographies, histories, socio-political and economic situations, thereby giving birth to an original voice and new aesthetic of representation.

Professor Moreno holds a B.A. in Economics and International Studies from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies from the University of Kansas. Before coming to Suffolk she taught a variety of courses in Spanish language, culture, and literature at the University of Denver and Salve Regina University. Her interests include contemporary Latin American Theatre, U.S.-Mexico Border Studies, Brazilian Studies, Spanish and Portuguese language and literature, and contemporary Latin American cinema and music. Her publications discuss contemporary Latin American theatre and U.S.-Mexico Border dramaturgy. She has attended numerous conferences both at the national and international level in the United States, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina.

The artwork for the book's cover was created by Lenin Tejeda, a Suffolk University Spanish major
