This Saturday get your imaginary guitars out and watch HALLELUJAH HENDRIX
on Britain's BBC2 tv channel.
Saturday 5th June 1999
Producer-Director: AMIR AMIRANI
A M I R A N I F I L M S
In September 1997, the first blue plaque ever erected to the memory
of a rock star went up on a London building. It had taken Jimi Hendrix's
one-time girlfriend Kathy Etchingham five years to convince English Heritage,
but once convinced, they enjoyed placing his memorial next to the plaque
for George Fredrick Handel who used to live next door. HALLELUJAH HENDRIX
is the story of the blue plaque, and of all who were concerned with its
produciton and erection, culminating in the unveiling by Pete Townsend.

* Iranian Culture and Civilization, University of Washington
I am pleased to inform you that the Department of Near Eastern Languages
and Civilization at the University of Washington has approved Iranian Culture
and Civilization as a core departmental offering in term "a"
of its summer quarter 1999 program. As you know, teaching language courses
which has been added to my teaching load since 1996 has not allowed me
to offer this course, which requires no prior knowledge of the Persian
language or Iranian culture. This arrangement makes it possible for me
once again to offer this popular and, to me, all-important undergraduate
course. Whether it will be taught in the future or not depends on the degree
of student participation. Therefore, I ask you to please bring this opportunity
to the attention of all those UW and access students who may be interested
in learning something about Iran and its 3,000-year old culture. Below,
you will see a brief description of the course content and structure.
Iranian Culture and Civilization (NE 250, 5 Credits) is an introductory
level course aimed at familiarizing students with the land, the people,
the history, and the present situation of Iranian and Iranate cultures.
It pursues the dual goal first of fostering an appreciation of the cultural
patterns that have kept Iran a distinct and significant force among world
cultures, and second of examining the part that cultural factors have played
in Irans efforts to come to terms with the forces of modernity without
losing its distinct identity. The course utilizes a variety of means and
mediums to achieve these ends. Historical overviews of the culture and
diverse literary texts will be supplemented by films, slide shows, musical
performances and various other pedagogical tools to help the students broaden
and deepen their understanding of the most important monuments and documents
of cultural significance.
Classes run from June 21 to July 21, 1999, and meet MWF, 1:10-4:30 p.
m. For more information, contact the Department of Near Eastern Languages
and Civilization at 543-6033.
