ALL Multi-Session Course: Great Presidential Inaugural Addresses

March 29 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

United States Presidential Inaugural addresses are, as a group, largely forgettable. But some are such enduring masterpieces their words, images, and thoughts continue to inspire us and to define or re-define what it means to be an American. We will study several of these speeches and examine their literary style and strategies as well as the historical, political, and cultural contexts within which they were written. We invite you to join us in a close analysis of these significant rhetorical and ritual occasions in our nation’s history.

ALL Course: Six Centuries of Crime in America: From Blackbeard the Pirate to Enron on Wall Street

April 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

No matter what the era, throughout history human beings have been fascinated by crime and criminals. Newspapers have always focused on that subject as a means of selling their product to the public. Think of the 20th century reader’s fascination with the 1932 Lindbergh baby kidnapping or the 1995 O.J. Simpson murder trial. Take a “magic carpet ride” with Dr. Stephen Goldman, who will share with you his historical newspaper collection and guide you through six centuries of notorious crimes and criminals in America. From Captain Kidd and Blackbeard, when pirates ruled the waves, to the Lizzie Borden murders, to the gangsters of the “roaring twenties,” and on to crime in the streets and crime in the suites (Wall Street, that is), you will experience what Americans read and thought and how the newspapers have changed their depiction of it.
