10:00 AM Israel: 70 Years of Craft and Design In recognition and celebration of the 70-year anniversary of the founding of Israel, Mingei International Museum and Balboa Park's House of Israel will collaborate on a retrospective exhibition highlighting the nation's diverse and lively craft and design.

Israel—70 Years of Craft and Design celebrates the art and innovation of the nation's diverse people through a rich range of objects of daily use. Over 100 objects (including Yemenite jewelry, Bedouin textiles, contemporary garments, sustainable and industrial design, adornment incorporating ancient materials, furniture and ceramics) illustrate the special fusion of European and Arab influences embodied in Israel's modern craft and design. Coinciding with global recognition of Israel's 70 years of statehood, this project is the Museum's first opportunity in its 40-year history to feature the innovative work of Israel's designers and artists.

This original exhibition is organized by House of Israel curator, Smadar Samson, with Mingei International Museum's executive director Rob Sidner serving as curatorial advisor.

4:00 PM Social Media and Impeachment of the President Approximately one year ago, Park Geun-Hye, the then president of South Korea, was impeached. Civic discontent embodied through massive street protests played a critical role in her impeachment. Many have speculated that the rise of social media played a role in the processes leading up to her impeachment.

What role did social media play in formulating people's beliefs? Did social media mobilize people to participate in political protests? What characterizes the social media users and what are the implications in going forward?

In this presentation, Yong Suk Lee of Stanford University examines these questions using a survey he conducted before and after the impeachment of Park Geun-Hye, and ultimately aims to shed some light on how social media and news disseminated through social media might affect society.

This event is sponsored by GPS's Korea-Pacific Program.

The event will take place in the GPS classroom 3202. Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure. There will be signage to direct you from Pangea to GPS.
