    The painter of works such as “Luncheon on the Grass” and “Olympia” that outraged the critics, Manet above all was a chronicler of modern life. But his work in the 1860s is filled with references to past art. Hailed as the father of Impressionism, Manet never showed with the group. This three-session class looks at his controversial early works, his treatment of contemporary subjects, and his rich connections to the art and politics of his time.

    The World War II internment of 110,000 Japanese Americans is variously described as wartime necessity, hysteria, economic exploitation, fascist duplication, and unbridled racial prejudice. The evacuation from the west coast and internment inland was authorized by Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin Roosevelt in February, 1942. In 1943 the U.... read more
    The World War II internment of 110,000 Japanese Americans is variously described as wartime necessity, hysteria, economic exploitation, fascist duplication, and unbridled racial prejudice. The evacuation from the west coast and internment inland was authorized by Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin Roosevelt in February, 1942. In 1943 the U. S. Supreme Court in Hirabayashi v. United States upheld restrictions placed by the government on Japanese Americans on the coast. Then the case was used as precedent to legally justify removal as a military necessity by the U. S. Supreme Court in 1944 in Korematsu v. United States. This class will follow the story from 1942 to 1988 when President Ronald Reagan signed into law an apology to the survivors and authorized a payment to each as belated compensation for their losses.

    After his near-fatal car accident, Mexican physician Don Miguel Ruiz became an apprentice of a Nagual or shaman in the Toltec tradition. His groundbreaking book The Four Agreements, a distillation of that indigenous American wisdom, has been translated into 48 languages and remained on the New York Times bestsellers list for ten years. At the heart of his work is the idea that our assumptions (our agreements) shape the quality of our lives, and when we craft new ways of thinking we greatly increase our freedom and power. Join us for this close look at each of the Four Agreements, and their intersections with philosophy, psychology, and world spirituality. (60 minute Zoom webinar, 30 minute Q&A)

This course will overview the history of U. S. immigration from the 18th century to the present, outlining the peak periods and how they've changed over time, as well as periods of exclusion. The course will show how diverse groups of immigrants have changed American culture and society and illustrate how present-day debates over immigration have longstanding roots.

    As opposition to the war continued to grow, the Nixon administration continued to look for a path to “peace with honor.” Until that agreement was reached, fighting persisted, often growing in intensity as the slow withdrawal of US troops continued. We will look at the process and problems of US disengagement through the early 1970s. We will also begin to examine the legacy of Vietnam and how perception has changed in the years since. There is no need to have been in any of the prior classes to enjoy this one!
