These topics all bring to mind Matthew Arnold’s great poem Dover Beach with its wonderfully prophetic closing lines, “We are here as on a darkling plain...where ignorant armies clash by night.” Daily we are losing what was once our main source of information, the newspaper. In this class we will view today’s headlines—war, health care, environmental destruction, underfunded education, religious conflict, and hate instead of debate—through the eyes of history and the printed word.

array of different civilizations contributed to the development of architecture and religion in the Americas: enigmatic cultures, such as the Olmecs sculpted gigantic heads of their lords; the ancient nomads drew mysterious hunting symbols in hard-to-get caves in Baja California; and, in the outskirts of today’s Mexico City, Teotihuacan (The City of the Gods), the greatest city of ancient America was built.

In modern times, Shanghai served as one of the few places of refuge for European Jews during World War II. Today, professor Xu Xin has helped revive Jewish study in China and, with others, has translated and condensed the 16-volume Encyclopedia Judaica into one volume in Chinese. The Jewish experience in India is equally as long. Jews were shipwrecked off the coast of India near Cochin in the Middle Ages, and later there was a very large community in Bombay (Mumbai). The meeting of east and west in these countries is a fascinating example of inter-cultural encounters.

The Aztecs were the last large pre-Hispanic culture to survive when the Spaniards conquered their capital city. But before the Aztecs, an

Tales from the Oval Office: The Men behind the Myths

Instructor: Dr. Kurt F.

They range from the almost mythic George Washington and Abraham Lincoln to the virtually unknown Millard Fillmore and Rutherford B. Hayes; from the scholarly

10

Woodrow Wilson to the barely literate Andrew Johnson; from the ebullient Theodore Roosevelt to the taciturn Calvin Coolidge; and, from the pious John Adams to the libidinous William Jefferson Clinton. This course will examine the men of the Oval Office—their distinctly different lives and accomplishments, their peculiarities and peccadilloes. We will come to know the times in which they lived and the events that were often missing from the headlines.

The greatest American cultural innovation in the 20th century is, without question, the American musical theater. We will explore the growth and development of musical theater, from its origins in vaudeville to Viennese operettas. We will find delight in British comic opera, revel to the beat of ragtime and jazz, and revisit the golden age of musical comedy.

We will explore the musical genius of: Gilbert and Sullivan, Franz Lehar, George M. Cohan and Victor Herbert; Rudolf Friml, Sigmund Romberg and Oscar Hammerstein; Jerome Kern; Irving Berlin; George Gershwin; Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart.

When viewed against the vast backdrop of history, few people have ever achieved longlasting fame. And, frequently, in those cases in which a name might still be recognizable after 25, 50, 100 years or more, all that remains is a “skeletal” recollection of the person.
