Exploring the Relationship Between Evolution and Creationism Saturday, November 6, 1:30–3 pm, HC 1900, SFU Vancouver Acceptance of evolution and the ability to have a faith-based perspective are often presented as being contradictory. Can the two co-exist? This seminar will challenge the view that evolution and creationism are two irreconcilable worlds and discuss the continuum of perspectives on creation and evolution. Although some people automatically reject the theory of evolution based on theological concerns, evidence will be presented to show that there is no reason that religious belief need necessarily be a barrier to holding an evolutionary viewpoint. Presenter: Barbara Moon. The History of Human Desire Saturday, December 4, 1:30–3 pm, HC 1900, SFU Vancouver The world of advertising is founded on a mechanism of desire: we desire to buy something because it is portrayed as desired by others. But the advertisement works only if it flatters us with the lie that this desire is somehow our autonomous creation. Is it an illusion that we construct our own identity? Is desire socially constructed, in a dark process of which we seemingly have some dim awareness, but yet still coloured with many more hues of selfdeception? Presenter: Christopher Morrissey. memory festival www.geist.com/about-memory-festival T: 604-681-9161
Our forums are hosted by the SFU Seniors Program and the SFU Lifelong Learners Society. No reservations are required; seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. A Brief History of Afghanistan—How Did We Get Here? Where Are We Going? Saturday, September 11, 1:30–3 pm, HC 1900, SFU Vancouver In the “great game” as played by Britain and Russia for supremacy in modern Asia, Afghanistan was a vital prize at the crossroads of China, South Asia and Central Asia. This presentation will tackle the complex story of today’s Afghanistan, in all its diversity of culture, ethnicity and religion, before asking what the stakes are since the rise of the Taliban. Presenter: Eva Sajoo. Latin America: Examining Beliefs and Traditions Saturday, October 23, 1:30–3 pm, HC 1900, SFU Vancouver Latin America is a rich, diverse and multi-ethnic region with a wide variety of traditions, monuments and cultural resources. In the last 500 years, these differing traditions have interwoven to establish new political systems, societies, traditions and belief systems. Through an examination of religious traditions, we will better understand the region’s diverse cultural compromise—demonstrating the remarkable and imaginative way the populations of Latin America have grown into new forms dominated by Christianity. Presenter: Alvaro Higueras. 4

Scientists ponder poor salmon returns
Muriel Marjorie, Henry Doyle and Joan Morelli perform their work.
Thursdays a hit in Downtown Eastside express themselves through writing. And express they do. Canadian literary magazine Geist has called Thursdays “the biggest, boldest and by far the most vital conspiracy of writers operating in Vancouver at present.” It’s no wonder Thursdays’ popular public readings have attracted well-known writers Michael Turner, Larissa Lai and Cathleen With, and inspired collaborations with poets Fiona Lam and John Asfour. Visit www.thewritersstudio.ca to learn more about this exciting program.
Making a difference in Asia
Can western universities make a difference to marginalized populations in Southeast Asia? SFU education graduate student Jillian Chisholm, who spent three weeks in Cambodia last summer, says yes. Chisholm travelled to Phnom Penh to witness the local impact of a continuing education centre developed by SFU’s Adult Education for Development Project and funded through the Canadian International Development Agency. She was particularly affected by the story of one local woman no longer condemned to a life of poverty due to limited education access. “As a participant in the project, she earned an MA in education from SFU,” reports Chisholm. “Now she wants to do her PhD so that she can involve other women.” Learn more about this and other important overseas programs at www.sfu.ca/cstudies/international.
“The classes made something click after writing on my own for 20 years on the streets,” says Henry Doyle, one of 50 participants in the Thursdays Writing Collective. This free program of weekly writing classes in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside grew out of the Writing and Publishing Program’s Writer’s Studio. The ages of collective participants range from 18 to 83, their education backgrounds from elementary to post-secondary. The one thing they all have in common is a desire to
When last summer’s sockeye salmon returns were the lowest in over 50 years, the crisis spawned a two-day think tank. In December, SFU Continuing Studies presented “Adapting to Change: Managing Fraser Sockeye in the Face of Declining Productivity and Increasing Uncertainty,” engaging a diverse group of scientists from SFU, UBC, BCIT and Laval and Dalhousie universities. Participants produced a statement of agreement, noting that the productivity of Fraser River sockeye salmon has declined “to the point where these fish are almost unable to replace themselves.” The thinktank concluded with a free public lecture featuring a panel of scientists, followed by a two-day public dialogue in March. All three events were vital steps in working toward an inclusive and sustainable solution. Visit www.sfu.ca/cstudies/science for reports and presentations from these events.

SFU Continuing Studies offers much more than courses. We are also involved in a number of exciting initiatives in our backyard and around the world that effect positive change in our city, our country and our world. Here’s a select look at what we’ve been doing. For a complete list of programs and initiatives, visit www.sfu.ca/cstudies.
Exploring Olympic controversies

Helping Aboriginal students
Pieter de Vos
Aboriginal students will soon find it easier and more convenient to access higher education through two new SFU initiatives, spearheaded by Continuing Studies’ Community Education Programs. The first builds on the Aboriginal University Prep Program and the Preparing for Health Careers: Aboriginal Pre-Health Program, which teach university-level skills in reading, writing and mathematics. Aboriginal students who complete either program will now earn university credit and
A new educational website explores the dilemma faced by Canadian athletes and politicians as they wrestled with the question of whether to participate in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, a watershed in the rise of Nazi Germany. Developed by Continuing Studies’ 7th Floor Media in partnership with the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre (VHEC), the website is based on a powerful exhibit currently on view at VHEC. Original interviews and historical documents bring Canada’s first serious encounter with Hitler’s totalitarian regime to life for students and teachers of Canadian history. “In addition to telling some compelling and little-known Canadian stories, the website encourages critical thinking about Canada’s past,” says Noni Maté, director of 7th Floor Media. Visit www.7thfloormedia.com to read more about this and other projects.
gain conditional acceptance to SFU’s degree programs. The second initiative, Stepping Stones, will develop a new online model for delivering literacy and academic skills for success in post-secondary education to Aboriginal learners in rural communities. Both programs are important steps in implementing SFU’s First Nations strategic plan, which aims to recruit and retain more Aboriginal students. Learn more at www.sfu.ca/community.
Literacy Lives to help socially excluded
Continuing Studies is launching a two-year project to improve the literacy and essential skills of adults living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Literacy Lives will take a grassroots approach, integrating literacy and skills training into information materials on HIV/AIDS . It’s hoped that the project, funded by a $765,000 grant from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, will ultimately increase employment opportunities and promote community well-being.

SFU Continuing Studies has developed several programs designed to help First Nations, Métis and Inuit students succeed in exploring new career opportunities and preparing to pursue post-secondary education. Developed in partnership with government and community organizations, these programs are designed to help Aboriginal learners get ready for the future they envision for themselves. Preparing for Health Careers: Aboriginal Pre-Health Program Please contact us for details on the 2010/2011 program. SFU Surrey The Aboriginal Pre-Health Program is a bridging program designed to provide Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) students, high school graduates and mature learners with an opportunity to explore various health career options while building the necessary academic prerequisites to pursue a post-secondary health science program, such as nursing, midwifery or dental hygiene. Students entering the Aboriginal Pre-Health Program will gain conditional acceptance to SFU and earn academic credits. Participants are supported throughout by the involvement of Aboriginal Elders and community members, and through networking, mentoring and subject-specific tutoring. Stepping Stones: A NEW PATH TO EDUCATION Please contact us for details on the 2010/2011 online program. The Community Engagement programs in Continuing Studies are embarking on a new initiative to create online resources that will help Aboriginal students gain access to and succeed in postsecondary education. With generous funding from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, Continuing Studies will develop a culturally relevant and mixed-mode online model and approach for teaching academic literacy and essential skills to Aboriginal adults living in remote communities. The project team will work closely with communities of the member Nations of the Lower Stl’atl’imx Tribal Council in the interior of BC, the First Nations Technology Council, Literacy BC, BC Campus and the Stó:Lo Nation Human Resources Development. They will develop a model and approach that is informed by the input, expectations, desires and cultural realities of rural communities partnering with us on the project.

The following courses may be taken individually or as part of the Non-Credit Certificate in the Liberal Arts. Full course descriptions, pricing, class dates and times will be announced on our website and in the Seniors Program course guide in mid-July. ABORIGINAL CONCEPTIONS OF TIME: TRANSFORMING HISTORICAL UNDERSTANDING Instructor: Kathryn McKay Indigenous peoples have historically viewed time as a cyclical continuum, whereas Westerners generally see it as the chronological “march of progress.” How do these differing views alter understandings of peoples and their histories? Through an exploration of the Mayan calendar, the Coast Salish peoples, the Plains Indians and others, we’ll investigate “time” as a concept across the Americas and consider the implications of diverging perspectives. THE ARCHITECTURE OF SPACE IN HUMAN IMAGINATION AND EXPERIENCE Instructor: David Scherzer Space is all around us, but we are hardly aware of its presence, let alone how it shapes our lives. Explore what space means for individuals and societies; the different effects of private and public space; and how space influences the way we relate to our environment, to each other and to ourselves. BLAZING SADDLES: THE ART OF LITERARY SATIRE IN THE WESTERN TRADITION Instructor: Graham Forst From the ancient Greeks to Mel Brooks, satire has been the narrative artist’s favourite device for challenging the status quo. Trace the course of this critical form in western literature through some of our greatest satirists. Particular attention will be given to works by Aristophanes, Horace, Geoffrey Chaucer, Molière, Voltaire, Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, Robbie Burns, Lord Byron, James Joyce and Samuel Beckett. Audio-visual examples will be extensively used to enhance each lecture. BRIDGING TWO WORLDS: EXAMINING THE CONTINUUM BETWEEN EVOLUTION AND CREATIONISM Instructors: Barbara Moon and Dennis Venema This course will focus on challenging the view that evolution and creationism are two irreconcilable worlds. Through readings, discussions and lectures, we’ll attempt to answer whether the evidence for evolution is compatible with religious faith. Two independent scholars will each conduct three sessions of this course—each scholar will explore the complexities of the evolution and creationism continuum. All perspectives will be introduced along with contemporary scientific data. CHILDHOOD IN AUTOBIOGRAPHY: TRACING THE EVOLUTION OF SELF Instructor: Christopher Levenson What childhood events shaped your understanding of who you are? Can you distinguish what you’ve actually experienced from what others have told you? This course will focus mainly on the creative process of writing about childhood and examine the degree to which fictionalization is an inevitable part of autobiography. Class work will include critical readings of writings by St. Augustine, Montaigne, Rousseau, Goethe and Virginia Woolf.
s i m o n f r a s e r u n i v e r s i t y > Co n t i n u i n g st u d i e s > s e n i o r s DEBATING HAPPINESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY Instructor: Lealle Ruhl Explore the many dimensions of happiness through readings, lectures and discussion. Topics include Plato’s happiness mandate; pharmaceutical-induced happiness; the social contagion theory of happiness; the importance of happiness in political life; the contemporary “science” of happiness; and the role of capitalism (and personal capital) in our notions of happiness. DISCOVERING EGYPTIAN CINEMA: FROM THE 1930S TO THE PRESENT Instructor: Danielle LeBlanc From revolutions to belly dancers to Omar Sharif, the Egyptian film industry—aka “Hollywood of the Nile”—is the Middle East’s largest and most prolific source of films. Through film clips and lecture, discover the genre’s rich and diverse history; the political, social and religious circumstances that contributed to its rise in the Arab world; and the complexities of the ancient society that shaped it. THE ERA OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION Instructor: Alan David Aberbach Explore the political and ideological conflicts that developed between Great Britain and her North American colonies from the end of the French and Indian War to the Revolution. We’ll also examine the nature of the Revolution, forms of government created in its aftermath and the battle over the Constitution. THE FASCINATING STORY OF ZEN CULTURE: EAST AND WEST Instructor: Michael Newton In North America, the word “Zen” is attached to everything from perfume to computer repair manuals. But what is it? First, we’ll examine the basic teachings and practices of Zen Buddhism and consider how it shaped, and was shaped by, Chinese and Japanese culture. Then we’ll turn our attention to how Zen has been presented to the West; how Zen thought has affected Western arts and popular culture; and, finally, how the tradition is adapting within a largely secular society. FROM BYZANTIUM TO VLAD—A CULTURAL JOURNEY THROUGH THE MEDIEVAL BALKANS Instructor: Gregory Myers Explore the intriguing history and culture of the Balkan Peninsula, beginning with the introduction of Slavic tribes into the Byzantine Empire in the 6th century. Tracing the stories of Saints Cyril and Methodius, we’ll follow the spread of literacy in the region and the impact of Christianity, as well as the region’s most infamous figure: the Wallachian grand prince Vlad Count Dracula. Finally, we’ll examine the Fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the subjugation of the Balkan lands to the Ottoman Turks, the ramifications of which are still felt today.
Course dates will be printed in July. Visit www.sfu.ca/seniors E: email@example.com | T: 778-782-5212
“Having an opportunity to explore and discuss diverse areas of knowledge based on others’ experiences has built our awareness and understanding of the worlds we live in and of ourselves.” —Jan and Barry, students, Seniors Program
THE FUNDAMENTALS OF FUNDAMENTALISM IN JUDAISM, CHRISTIANITY and ISLAM Instructor: Donald Grayston Religious fundamentalism is as intriguing as it is wide reaching. Is it a permanent fixture of the religious reality or a passing phase? Socioreligious phenomenon or political package in pious wrapping? Due to the brevity of the course, investigations will be confined to western fundamentalism, namely Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Join us for this no-holds-barred exploration into one of the most important topics of our time. GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL: THE COSMOPOLITAN MUSICIAN Instructor: Nicolas Krusek George Frideric Handel (1685–1759) wrote 42 operas, 29 oratorios and numerous orchestral and chamber works, and had a powerful influence on future composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms. Gain a better understanding of Handel’s style and legacy by examining some of his best-known works, including the operas Giulio Cesare and Serse, the oratorios Israel in Egypt and Messiah, the Concerti Grossi, Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks.
r e a dy f o r m o r e GIUSEPPE VERDI’S LATE OPERAS: FROM AIDA TO FALSTAFF Instructor: Harvey de Roo With Verdi’s Aida in 1871, the opera world thought the pre-eminent Italian operatic composer of the 19th century had retired in triumph. Yet the best was still to come with Otello in 1887 and Falstaff in 1893, both widely acknowledged as Verdi’s greatest works. We’ll examine these operas, along with several others, to gain a better appreciation of their special qualities as music drama. HEALTH CARE: HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS Instructor: Susan Baxter Health issues are stressful enough without the puzzle that is the health care system. This course will help you become a better advocate for yourself and those you care about by deconstructing some of the mysteries of hospital and community-based care. Topics include understanding the initial diagnosis, decoding and researching the options, weighing risks and benefits, and communicating with medical professionals. HOT TOPICS: CURRENT EVENTS IN A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE Instructor: Lealle Ruhl Join this lively forum on current events. Specific topics discussed will be decided on a week-to-week basis, reflecting the interests of participants and breaking news stories. Human Origins: Where Did We Come From and How Did We Get Here? Instructor: David Maxwell Ape Men? Cave Men? The Missing Link? Lucy? Olduvai Gorge? Many people think that human origins are shrouded in mystery or far too confusing for the average person to understand. This course is designed to disprove this notion, offering a non-technical survey of the basics of human evolution, evolutionary theory and a history of humankind. Each lecture will focus on a different part of the evolutionary puzzle, beginning with a primer on archaeology, physical anthropology, fossils and the human skeleton and continuing through the fossil record right up to modern humans. THE JAZZ SINGERS Instructor: Neil Ritchie Gain or expand your appreciation of jazz in this fun and informative course. Together, we’ll celebrate the lives and music of the great jazz singers, including Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan and Tony Bennett. Get to know the big band singers, the blues singers and even a few current pop singers who share many qualities with past artists. JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH: A LIFE IN COUNTERPOINT Instructor: Nicolas Krusek Johann Sebastian Bach was a respected organist and teacher, but his reputation as a composer wasn’t established until the early 19th century with Mendelssohn’s revival of the St. Matthew Passion. Today, more than 250 years after his death, Bach’s works are in the repertoire of every serious musician. Develop or expand your passion for the Baroque master through study of his great church cantatas, the Brandenburg Concerti and the major sacred works: the St. John Passion, the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B Minor. 38
“Seniors Program courses are taught by knowledgeable instructors who provide insight and perspective on today’s issues.” —Judy, student, Seniors Program
MACHIAVELLI AND THUCYDIDES: RE-EXAMINING “REALIST” APPROACHES TO INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS Instructor: Chris Erickson The study of International Relations has been dominated by the “realist” approach, which claims to offer an understanding of things as they really are, not as they ought to be. By examining the work of two philosophers who figure prominently in the realist tradition, Thucydides and Machiavelli, we’ll attempt to answer why realists find these authors so appealing, how well warranted their positions are in the canon of realism and whether their writings have value in today’s globalized world. ONE NATION, TWO WORLDS: THE HISTORY OF SOUTH AFRICA IN THE 20TH CENTURY Instructor: Ed Steinhart Race relations in the 20th century were epitomized by the experiences of all South Africans living under apartheid. Trace the roots of apartheid, structures of discrimination and economic deprivation imposed on Africans, the effects of international indifference and Cold War politics and the struggle toward freedom for oppressed groups.
s i m o n f r a s e r u n i v e r s i t y > Co n t i n u i n g st u d i e s > s e n i o r s THE POP-ART PHENOMENON: EXPLORING THE EVERYDAY Instructor: Joe McHugh After the unveiling of Andy Warhol’s 1964 exhibition, art critic Arthur Danto famously proclaimed “the end of art”—and few traditionalists disagreed. Today, Warhol’s images are part of nearly every major museum’s collection. In this course, we will discuss the implications of “the end of art,” the rise of pop-art and the role media images play in our perceptions of art, society and ordinary objects. SISTERS IN ART: VIRGINIA WOOLF AND VANESSA BELL Instructor: Andrea Lebowitz Important modernists and sisters, writer Virginia Woolf and painter Vanessa Bell have much to teach us about their time—especially when studied together. We’ll consider their biographies, the state of modernism when they began to work and their contributions to it. Works examined include several of Bell’s paintings and three of Woolf’s major works: To the Lighthouse, Orlando and Between the Acts. Students are encouraged to read these novels before the first class. SOCIETY AND SOCIALIZATION: UNDERSTANDING HUMAN NATURE Instructor: Juergen Dankwort What does it mean to be human? How does a society develop? Why is there misery in the world? Join this fascinating discussion of key questions and concepts at the heart of sociology. Through exercises, lectures, readings and audio-visual aides, we’ll explore a range of topics, including human nature, society and socialization; cultural and religious environments; social order and deviancy; the basis for social inequality; and globalization. TWELVE GREAT CONDUCTORS OF THE MODERN ERA Instructor: Henry Ewert Behind the surging power of our finest orchestral performances are the conductors who give life to a musical work. This course celebrates twelve exceptional conductors—Abbado, Barbirolli, Barenboim, Beecham, Bernstein, Furtwängler, Levine, Stokowski, Toscanini, Maazel, Solti and von Karajan—who have so richly contributed to our enjoyment of the orchestral repertoire. UNDERSTANDING CAPITALISM IN THE MODERN ERA Instructor: Allen Fenichel How can a market system produce unprecedented levels of material well-being as well as periods of record-breaking unemployment, high bankruptcies rates and widespread fear? This course attempts to answer that important question by examining how private markets function and what role business, banks and government have to play. We’ll also explore alternatives to capitalism and their potential to produce superior outcomes.
Course dates will be printed in July. Visit www.sfu.ca/seniors E: firstname.lastname@example.org | T: 778-782-5212
Virtues and World Religions Instructor: Harold Rosen Faced with disturbing developments in today’s world, a growing number of social activists, educators and parents are rediscovering “virtue ethics” and its age-old vision of a peaceful and harmonious world. But is the virtue ethicist’s quest for “unity-in-diversity” a disguised form of global oppression, a shallow slogan or an unavoidable progression as we enter the 21st century? In this course, we’ll explore virtues from a global-historical perspective and apply them to contemporary challenges. WOMEN’S FASHIONABLE DRESS IN THE 20TH CENTURY: FROM CLASSICAL REVIVAL TO MODERNITY Instructor: Ivan Sayers From petticoats to pants to platforms—as the last century progressed, fashion transformed along with women’s role in society. Through slides, original garments and engaging discussion, explore the intriguing evolution of women’s dress during this important period. We’ll also examine fashion’s enduring connection to politics, technology and social mores. Full course descriptions, pricing, class dates and times will be announced on our website and in the Seniors Program course guide in mid-July.

Seniors Outreach Project The SFU Seniors Outreach Project was established four years ago to raise awareness and promote discussion amongst seniors about the many issues affecting them. The project consists of a series of expert-roundtable DVDs that can be viewed by seniors online or at one of our many partner organizations across Canada. So far, 6 DVDs have been produced, entitled Perceptions of God and Heaven, Multiculturalism and the Canadian Identity, Grandparenting in the 21st Century, Democracy: The Intent and the Reality, Seniors Rights and the Challenge of Elder Abuse and the newest DVD, A Place for Everyone: Age-friendly Communities. The Outreach Project DVDs have now been viewed by over 4,000 seniors, from Victoria to St. John’s, Newfoundland. The Project is pleased to enjoy the support of over 250 partner organizations, who regularly present the videos to older adults in their communities. Partner organizations include public libraries, assisted living centres, senior centres and community centres.
