Our Spring 2019 Courses include:

Two 5 week courses will run each Tuesday for the first half of the semester, March 12 - April 9

Immigration Into and Migration Within the US: Then and Now Learn how immigration has stirred strong emotions in our country over the years, and how this history can better inform us about what is happening today.

The Many Meanings of Justice“Justice” is one of those words that, like “love,” has many meanings.  In today’s heated political climate, many people feel like their understandings of justice are being trampled on. Join us to explore the many meanings of justice in social arrangements, in response to harm done by individuals, and in global relations.

The final class will look to the future – how might the world have more justice?  All you need to bring is an open mind and a desire to learn.


Two 5 week courses will run each Tuesday for the second half of the semester,  April 23 - May 21

From Lesbian-Feminism to the Alphabet Generation: Liberation and its Discontents Join us to learn about or relive the lesbian feminist movement that radicalized feminist protest, the emergence of transgender politics, and the rise of new identities (LGBTQQINS, sometimes called the “alphabet generation”). Consider whether and how the ongoing conflict between an older generation of lesbian feminists and transgender activists can be reconciled. The class will include presentation, discussion, and a documentary film.

Enrollment limited to 15.

TED Talks:  How Ideas Can Stimulate Curiosity and Discussion

This class will involve a 5-week series of a variety of stimulating TED Talks, including but not limited to topics as diverse as interpersonal relationships, race, politics, and immigration/migration.  Several TED Talks will be viewed by the class each week, directly followed by a facilitator-led discussion on the Talk.  Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences, perspectives and ideas as they relate to each TED Talk, with the goal of encouraging discussion between class members in an open and honest format.
