IN MEMORIAM

This catalog is dedicated in memory of our former catalog designer and very dear OLLI friend, Deborah Sasinski.


A message to our OLLI members: Welcome to the 2009-2010 OLLI programming year! Along with autumn breezes, the fall brings a fresh new term of engaging courses, plus many exciting changes at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida International University. We are now part of a newly formed division within FIU—University College. University College can show you how to take steps to turn your challenges into opportunities and, through OLLI@FIU, turn your retirement into an invigorating learning adventure. New offices (and new website). We have moved into our own office suite in Academic II within the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus (note, however, that our phone, fax, and e-mail information remains the same). The office suite has been designed to encourage and facilitate opportunities for you to comfortably interact with OLLI staff and fellow students. Our new offices are now more centrally located on campus—near the university library, student center, bookstore, new cafeteria food court, pool and gym. Plans are underway to use the walls of our new surroundings as a living museum to showcase OLLI student art/hobby projects. We are also very excited about our new home on the web: http://olli.fiu.edu. Make sure to pay us a visit there, as well, and browse all of our new user-friendly enhancements and features. Extended classroom options. As part of University College, we will now have access to more varied classroom venues. Fall classes will be held at the Kovens Conference Center, the Wolfe University Center, and two classrooms housed in our new office suite in Academic II. These new classroom arrangements will allow more flexible course scheduling, greater control over the room allocation, and considerable savings in facility costs. The new venues’ more central campus location will not only allow for greater access to campus amenities, as previously described, but will also allow greater opportunities for OLLI students to more easily interact with the rest of the university community—a chance for the “seniors” to mingle with the more junior students in a shared learning environment. Increased Community Involvement. While OLLI operates within a state university, it is important to point out that OLLI does not receive any state funding. As a self-sustaining unit, OLLI is supported solely by membership and course fees, private grant funds, and the kind donations and support of members like you. We try to keep membership and course fees very affordable for our members; however, it is becoming increasingly challenging to sustain non-traditional, innovative programming in these difficult economic times. As the university faces tight economic challenges, all departments and units have been asked to find creative cost-savings measures and to encourage greater community involvement. For these reasons, we ask that you please consider supporting the OLLI programs you love by providing a tax-deductible donation and/or by sharing your time and expertise with us as a volunteer (the registration form inside this catalog has an area for making donations and you may also visit http://olli.fiu.edu/support.html). Now more than ever, your support is crucial to secure the future continuation of this program, so that we may continue to offer members the high quality courses, instructors, and benefits all deserve. As you review the fall catalog, we hope you will find courses that will enrich your commitment to lifelong learning. If you are a new OLLI member, welcome and enjoy! If you are a returning OLLI student, thank you for your continued involvement. For new and returning students alike, we greatly appreciate your interest in and support of OLLI@FIU and hope you share our great enthusiasm about all these new, exciting changes!

We need the tools to enable us to fully grasp the enormity of what faces the future. The economy may be improving, but how soon will normalcy return? Is the threat of multiple wars and rumors of wars growing or lessening? Is our environment on the brink of disaster? And what is being done to deal with housing, education, employment, political reform, healthcare and all the normal problems which are becoming even more of a concern than usual? In this class, we try to relate the world today to the history that created it, and look to our times to help us see the future. This is not a lecture class, it is a participatory weekly round table, where we share ideas and possibilities, and where we seek to bring together history, economics, society, culture and—above all—our personal understanding of the world we now face.

This course offers both a historical overview of this important moment in film history and a chance to discuss the innovative and daring style of five memorable full length films: The 400 Blows (Truffaut, 1959), Breathless (Godard, 1960), Bob the Gambler (JeanPierre Melville, 1958), The Good Time Girls (Chabrol, 1960), Cléo from 5 to 7 (Agnès Varda, 1961), and two short films: The Girl at the Monceau Bakery (1963, Eric Rohmer) and Suzanne’s Career (1963, Eric Rohmer).

While the Eiffel tower was being constructed and iron was an innovative material, Art Nouveau became the fashionable style. Using an array of pictures from this era as examples, we will observe the different characteristics of the masters of Art Nouveau: the dreamy structures of Gaudi, the sensuous women of Klimt, the sinuous designs of Horta’s houses, the imagery of the glass vases of Gallé and Daum, and the wonderful stain glass creations of Tiffany.

The Missing Factor: Talking Back to the News Instructor: Dr. Kurt F. Stone Fall A Dates: 6 Wednesdays: September 23, 30 and October 7, 14, 21, 28 Time: 1:15 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. Fee: $110.00 Course Number: OLL0355FA Location: Kovens Conference Center According to comedian John Stewart, “On an average day seven minutes of news happens. Yet, there are currently three full-time, 24-hour news networks.” In any event, most news, as reported, whether in print, via camera, microphone or on the Internet, is a one-way proposition; we, as readers, listeners and consumers of news, rarely have a chance to interact—to “talk back.” This course seeks to give students the chance to engage in what we will call “the missing factor” of two-way communication. In each session, we will review the week’s leading stories, issues and events, and avail ourselves of the opportunity to question, understand, discuss and give opinions on what’s going on in this rapidly, dynamically changing

12

world. Additionally, we will examine the different ways in which leading media outlets cover the news, with an eye toward understanding what, if any, bias may exist.

All the News That Fits: A Weekly Discussion of Headline Stories Instructor: Dr. Kurt F. Stone Fall B Dates: 6 Wednesdays: November 4, 18, 25 and December 2, 9, 16 Time: 1:15 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. Fee: $110.00 Course Number: OLL0355FB Location: Kovens Conference Center It is an inescapable fact of modern life that no matter where we turn, it is impossible to escape the news. Whether in newspapers or magazines, on cable or broadcast television, AM-FM radio or the Internet, news is a twenty-four-hour-a-day, three-hundred-sixty-fivedays-a-year proposition. In this course, we will review and discuss the week’s most important news items, look at the stories and personalities “behind the headlines,” and see what biases might be found. Weekly topics will be drawn from the worlds of politics, international relations, economics, science, crime and show business.

Lights! Camera! Action! Great Directors and Their Masterpieces Instructor: Dr. Kurt F. Stone Fall A Dates: 6 Wednesdays: September 23, 30 and October 7, 14, 21, 28 Time: 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Fee: $110.00 Course Number: OLL0439FA Location: Kovens Conference Center One of Hollywood’s most endearing debates is over precisely what makes a movie great: the actor, the screenplay or the director? If one sees movie-making as the ultimate collaborative art, the answer would have to be—the director, who has the ultimate responsibility for taking words, ideas, setting and ego, and then synthesizing them into celluloid art. This course will present the biographies of six of filmdom’s greatest directors, and then offer a critical examination of what, in the opinion of the instructor, is their greatest contribution to the

cinematic art: The Thief of Baghdad (Raoul Walsh); The General (Buster Keaton); Ninotchka (Ernst Lubitsch); Casablanca (Michael Curtiz); Lawrence of Arabia (David Lean); and Dead End (William Wyler).

Lights! Camera! Action! Redux: Six More Cinematic Masters Instructor: Dr. Kurt F. Stone Fall B Dates: 6 Wednesdays: November 4, 18, 25 and December 2, 9, 16 Time: 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Fee: $110.00 Course Number: OLL0452FB Location: Kovens Conference Center Movie making is perhaps the most unique, demanding and symbiotic of all art forms. For where else is a creative process more sharply defined by the interests of one’s investors, or one investor’s success more completely dependent upon the spontaneity of art? More than anyone else, it is the director who stands astride with this ‘Scylla’ of Wall Street and ‘Charybdis’ of art. His/her responsibilities are legion: everything from dramaturge to psychologist. Out of the literally thousands of men and women who have directed motion pictures, fewer than 50 can be considered truly great or inspired. Our cinematic masters include: John Ford (1895-1973); Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980); Howard Hawks (18961977); Frank Capra 1897-1991); Edward Dmytryk (1908-1999); and Billy Wilder (1908-2002).

REGISTRATION INFORMATION & POLICIES 4 EASY WAYS TO REGISTER! MAIL: Send your registration form to Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), Florida International University, Biscayne Bay Campus, 3000 NE 151st ST, Room ACII 130, North Miami, FL, 33181. Enclose payment with your registration form. Please use a separate form for each person registering (photocopies of form are acceptable). PHONE: Telephone registration hours are Monday-Friday, 9 AM - 4 PM. Please have your credit card information readily available and call 305-919-5910. FAX: Fax your completed registration form to 305-919-5484. IN-PERSON: Register Monday-Friday, 9 AM - 4 PM, at the OLLI office at Florida International University, Biscayne Bay Campus, 3000 N.E. 151 Street, Room ACII 130 (1st floor of Academic II building). REFUND POLICY: If you find it necessary to withdraw from a course before attending the first class, a course refund request must be submitted one week prior to the first day of class to avoid a cancellation processing fee. Refund requests for dropped courses after the first day of class will incur a $25 processing fee and will be deducted from your refund. No credit or refunds will be issued for missed classes. GUEST POLICY: Bringing guests to class is a great way to introduce OLLI to a potential student, and you are encouraged to do so. OLLI members may obtain guest vouchers prior to the start of class by contacting the OLLI office. Guest vouchers are good for ONE course meeting. After the first visit, guests must register and pay for the course fee to continue. TRANSFERS: Requests for a course transfer must be received in the OLLI office within 24 hours of the conclusion of the first class. CANCELLATIONS: Although we make every effort to avoid course cancellation, administrative emergencies or low enrollments do occur. Please provide us with your local home and cell phone numbers and your e-mail address so that we may reach you in a timely manner. If a course is canceled due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen faculty emergencies, you may (1) select an alternate course and the fee will be adjusted accordingly, or (2) apply the course fee to a subsequent term (credit good for one academic year), or, (3) we will gladly refund the entire course fee. If Florida International University is closed due to inclement weather, we will not hold classes. Arrangements for make-up classes will be at the discretion of the OLLI administration. Please check your local TV stations for school closings or call FIU’s emergency hotline at 305348-HELP for the latest updates. SCHEDULE CHANGES: Due to circumstances beyond our control, class dates, instructors, times and locations are sometimes subject to change. OLLI will make every effort possible to notify you, in advance, about schedule or instructor changes. SEASONAL FLORIDIAN: If you have an out-of-town permanent address, please provide us with the approximate dates you will be in South Florida and a local and/or out-of-town address where you would like to receive your OLLI catalog. If your temporary address changes yearly, please be sure to update your contact information prior to your return to Florida by contacting the OLLI office. Classes fill quickly, and we don’t want you to miss the opportunity to register for your favorite courses! CLASSROOMS: Classrooms can sometimes be quite cool. Bring a sweater or jacket for your comfort. Please note that our teaching facilities are used concurrently by unrelated corporate clients and for other academic events. OLLI students are respectfully requested to show reciprocal consideration of other clients’ space and catering activities. (See campus map on page 4) PARKING: OLLI classes are being held in the Kovens Conference Center, Wolfe University Center, and the Academic II building—all located at the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus, just off Biscayne Blvd. at NE 151 St. in North Miami. There is plentiful parking in the large lots in front of the buildings, and there are handicapped parking spaces near the building entrances (detailed parking instructions will be provided upon registration).
