ALL Multi-Session Course: The Value of Antiques and Objects of Art: Do You Know What You Own?

April 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The collecting of antiques, a multi-million dollar per year business, can be described as a hobby, a passion, an obsession, or even a sickness. This course is designed to give the student and the collector an idea of the value of their collection and whom they can trust when buying or selling antiques. We will examine quality antiques and discuss whether the object is good, better, best, or a masterpiece. The first four sessions will examine the criteria for evaluating objects of art. The fifth session will be the instructor’s version of the PBS series, the Antiques Roadshow. Students are invited to bring one antique for analysis and evaluation at the last class.

ALL Course: Nuclear Weapons: Looking the Tiger in the Eye…Again

May 15 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

After a short post-Cold War hiatus, nuclear weapons are returning to a salience in international security affairs that may soon rival that of the Cold War era. Russia and China have been “modernizing” their nuclear weapon arsenals for several years, and are behaving on the international scene in increasingly worrisome ways. The United States, after maintaining an essentially static strategic posture for twenty-five years, is beginning (and debating) its own modernization program. The geopolitical context in which we learned to manage the dangers and benefits of nuclear weapons during the Cold War no longer exists, and the new one is different and more complex. Nine nations have nuclear weapons, and further nuclear proliferation is latent in East Asia and the Middle East. Arms control seems to have reached a point of diminishing returns.
