Ark, Fire and Staff: A literary Analysis of the Qur'anic Accounts of the Young Moses: A Hajja Razia Sharif Sheik lecture from the Department of Near Eastern Studies, UM.

  community member   < less Ark, Fire and Staff: A Literary Analysis of the Qur'anic Accounts of the Young Moses

Moses (Musa) is the prophet most mentioned and discussed of the ancient prophets in the Qur'an. In this lecture, Michael Sells offers a detailed analysis of the major episodes in the early life of Musa. The analysis centers on the rhetorical, poetic, and narrative features of Sura 20 (Ta Ha) and Qur'anic passages concerning the role of Umm Musa (the mother of Moses) in receiving a divine inspiration and saving her infant son; Musa's vision of the fire; the divine proclamation he heard when he approached the fire; the signs of the staff-snake and the white-hand that were entrusted to him; and his subsequent duel of words and staffs at the court of Pharaoh.

Daughters of Fire.

  community member   < less

Author Tom Peek talks about his mystical novel "Daughters of Fire," which illuminates how the Hawaiian islands' transformation into a tourist mecca and developers' gold mine sparked a Native Hawaiian movement to reclaim their culture, protect sacred land, and step into the future with wisdom. A visiting astronomer falls in love with a Hawaiian anthropologist who guides him into a Polynesian world of volcanoes, gods, and revered ancestors.
Peek, winner of a 2013 Benjamin Franklin Silver Finalist Award by the Independent Book Publishers Association, has lived for 25 years in Hawai'i, where he has worked as a mountain and astronomy guide on Mauna Kea and an eruption ranger, wildland firefighter and exhibit writer in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. He has worked closely with Hawaiian elders and cultural practitioners and lives on Kilauea.

Who Am I Living With?!?! (Adult ADHD and relationships).

  community member   < less

The impact of ADHD on relationships can show up in dozens of different ways. The non-ADHD partner often feels they are being ignored or taken for granted. The ADHD partner feels controlled and stifled. This can become a vicious cycle, the partners misunderstanding each other, their differences pushing them farther and farther apart.
Come and explore this subject in a performance and discussion. We'll show and then talk about some relationship problems that can have an ADHD component. We'll share some coping strategies, though sometimes it's just enough to know "oh! He's not the only one!" Share your stories and listen to others.
