Lectures NEW! Music and Art: A Beautiful Couple

Music and art simply go hand-in-hand. They touch every human society, and the relationship between music and art influences all artists. Both art and music lend alliances with words, as in songs and in paintings. Both reflect and influence human emotion. When we experience different types of sounds, they evoke feelings within us. Many artists describe the types of music they listened to while painting and creating. Willie Dixon will lead a discussion the relationship of art and music through history – including folk, contemporary and classical paintings; jazz, Dixieland and classical music.

The 19th Century Rural Cemetery Movement

The Industrial Revolution lured throngs of workers to evermorecongested cities, and urban burial grounds became increasingly overcrowded. Graves were stacked atop each other, and graveyards were blamed for the diseases which seized cities. Society, under the influence of Romanticism, moved toward reformation. This class examines how America embraced cemeteries as cultural institutions and how rural cemeteries transformed the ways Americans thought about death and nature. Friday, Sept. 6 9 a.m. - noon • KCC Room D123 $19

Analyzing the Federal & Confederate Congress

Today’s political climate leaves Congress in constant gridlock and with a reputation of achieving little. The Civil War forced Congress on both sides to focusing on the war effort. The U.S. Congress still successfully pushed through legislation that moved the nation forward. The Confederate Congress struggled for national survival. This class will examine the accomplishments and failures of the 37th Congress (1861-63), the 38th Congress (1863-65), and the three Confederate Congresses. Friday, Sept. 20 9 a.m. - noon • KCC Room D123 $19

19th Century Presidential Elections

Every four years, United States citizens have the opportunity to participate directly in the election of our president. One winner has the honor of serving in the nation’s highest office. This class examines presidential elections between 1832 and 1856, an era of American History fraught with sectional tensions; new and quickly abandoned political parties; and campaigns very different from what we see today. But, was it politics as usual?

Desertion in the Civil War

This class examines desertion of both Union and Confederate soldiers in order to understand the reasons for their individual choices. We also will look at public attitudes and the role the community played in either favoring or discouraging desertion, the vast amount of recruitment fraud that played in desertion, and how both sides dealt with what they saw as a cowardice crime. Friday, Nov. 1 9 a.m. - noon • KCC Room D123 $19

Turkey and Thanksgiving: A History

Thanksgiving is synonymous with turkey. This class discusses the true history of Thanksgiving, the turkey as a cultural symbol and the center of the dinner table, as well as presidential turkey pardons, turkey raffles and turkey drives. It will also examine how Americans celebrated Thanksgiving from 17th century to modern times. Friday, Nov. 15 9 a.m. - noon • KCC Room D123 $19

Christmas in American Culture

Christmas has a crucial role in American culture. Christmas is more meaningful to Americans than any other seasonal event. This class highlights Christmas traditions and explores the history of the holiday. We will discuss the origins of Dec. 25, the commercialization of the holiday: and explore carols, cards, Santa, and other Christmas symbols. Friday, Dec. 6 9 a.m. - noon • KCC Room D123 FREE, registration is required.

Civil War in the Western Frontier

The American Civil War was between the North and South, but it was about the West. More specifically, it was about the westward expansion of slavery. This class analyzes how the western frontier was critical to both the United States and the Confederacy; the notions of civilized and honorable warfare; how fighting Native Americans differed from the armies, and battles occurring between both armies and Indians. Friday, Oct. 18 9 a.m. - noon ●• KCC Room D123 $19

Spanish Interpretation: General

Interpreters are needed in public service areas. If you love helping people, have a good ear for language and can speak Spanish, you should consider working as a Spanish interpreter. Individuals unable to communicate in English or with limited English proficiency often cannot gain access to services and are at considerable risk for receiving inappropriate care because of the language barrier. This course teaches the skills necessary to become an effective interpreter including skits and plenty of practice. Participants must be fluent in both English and Spanish before enrollment. Instructor: Lupita Sorich. Mondays, Oct. 7 to Nov. 11 6-9 p.m. • KCC Room D123 $99, includes materials.
