  • In The Last Days of the City, film screening and discussion with director Tamer El-Said (View)
    When: Monday, September 24th, 2018 4:00pm - 7:00pm
    Where: Lang Performing Arts Center Room (LPAC) 101 Cinema

    This film within a film is a haunting yet lyric chronicle of recent years in the Arab world, where revolutions seemed to spark hope for change and yield further instability in one stroke. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Khalid Abdalla (The Kite Runner, The Square) plays the protagonist of Tamer El Said’s ambitious feature debut, a filmmaker in Cairo attempting to capture the zeitgeist of his city as the world changes around him—from personal love and loss to the fall of the Mubarak regime.

    Throughout, friends send footage and stories from Berlin, Baghdad, and Beirut, creating a powerful, multilayered meditation on togetherness, the tactile hold of cities, and the meaning of homeland. Shot in 2008 and completed in 2016, the film explores the weight of the cinematic image as record and storytelling in an ongoing time of change.

    This event is open to the public.

    When: Monday, September 24th, 2018 7:30pm - 9:00pm

    “Has American Democracy Outstripped its Institutional Accommodations? The Adaptability Paradox in American Constitutional  Development” 

     American government boasts such a long history of success in navigating through tough times that it is hard to gauge the significance of the problems that currently beset it.  Institutions appear dysfunctional, rights feel insecure, rules seem unreliable, parties are polarized, norms are crumbling.  But we have seen problems like these before. The question is whether there anything of significance that is different now, anything that might affect the resilience and adaptability of the system going forward. A closer look at how our institutions adjusted in the past yields a sobering diagnosis of the current state affairs.  

    Stephen Skowrone is the Pelatiah Perit Professor of Political Science and Professor in the Institution for Social and Policy Studies, Yale University.
