Generations of learning TELAXTEN, Paul R. Sam, pictured in First Peoples House on the UVic campus. Photo: MJ Turner, UVic Paul’s son Ian (SDEMOXELTEN) graduated with his father from the Certificate in Aboriginal Language Revitalization program and is also determined to help his generation preserve its language, so much so that he has developed a system that he hopes will help him achieve those goals. Soccer, he says, is popular with the Tsartlip First Nation, so he built a SENCOTEN immersion program that can be used on the field. “It’s a program I developed to get people interested in the language,” Sam, 26, said. His next step is coming up with a funding formula that will help him launch the concept. “It’s become a passion.”

Aboriginal Language and Culture CERTIFICATE IN ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE REVITALIZATION This award-winning and accessible program is designed to strengthen your understanding of language loss, maintenance and recovery and develop knowledge and strategies for language revitalization within communities. It is oﬀered by the University of Victoria’s Department of Linguistics and Division of Continuing Studies, in partnership with the En’owkin Centre in Penticton. Applications to this innovative 13.5-unit program are accepted year round. You complete 9.0 units (6 courses) of required core courses that build your foundation of knowledge and skills. Core courses are oﬀered in short, intensive sessions at the En’owkin Centre in Penticton and at the University of Victoria throughout the year, or in community settings through partnership arrangements.

Arts HISTORY IN ART Shakespeare’s Lovers, Lunatics and Poets in Art NEW!
Shakespeare’s characters and situations, owing to their vividness, passion, charm and psychological depth, have always been the subjects of plastic art and then later of movies and television. In this course we will explore the expressive power of Shakespeare’s imagery, its play of ideas about human love and its ability to penetrate and inform almost every human endeavour with that love. We will also examine the actions and motivations of a full spectrum of characters from the dark Richard III to the sunny Rosalind, and how they serve as inspiration to a host of artists. One full session will be devoted to Shakespeare-inspired Canadian art.

In this course we will examine a variety of themes relating to both historical and contemporary Northwest Coast Art, with roots and traditions in the Kwakwaka’wakw cultural group. These include arts of the potlatch; contemporary interpretations of traditional concepts, such as transformation, in the work of many brilliant artists such as Mungo Martin, Charlie James, Willie Seaweed, Henry Hunt, Tony Hunt and many other members of the Hunt, Cranmer and Alfred families of artists. We will investigate the development of the graphic arts in print form as well as a wide spectrum of artistic output embracing naturalistic as well as abstract design. Through illustrated lectures we will explore the meaning and context associated with a broad range of objects from ceremonial masks and totem poles to bentwood boxes, silkscreen prints, button blankets, raven rattles and feast dishes. Instructor: Kerry Mason, MA
Louis Comfort Tiﬀany and His Art NEW!
Louis Comfort Tiﬀany was one of the greatest American ﬁgures to emerge in the age of art nouveau and the aesthetic movement. He and his company created some of the most beautiful stained glass of the 19th and 20th centuries and his windows, lamps, vases and other objects are prized today equally by professional connoisseurs and the general public. This course will examine his art, his business practices and his legacy, including the present-day Tiﬀany & Company of New York, whose name and legend have entered popular culture.

What exactly are “modern art” and “contemporary art”? Why do works of art move us and what makes a work of art good? What makes it art? An entertaining, informative, interactive introduction to some key aspects of art theory and aesthetics, this course combines slide lectures and seminar-style
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, no other city in Europe has had a greater inﬂux of artists from around the world than Berlin. Artists relocate to Germany’s capital and set up studios in the old warehouses left by the communist regime. In the former East Berlin the rent is cheap, the buildings are large, and although run down, they retain a productive ruinen-chic that is preferred over West Berlin’s concrete architectural progressiveness. What comes out of these old brick buildings is breathtaking. Many artists have soared to critical acclaim and unbelievable market success. In addition, there are those who come to Berlin just to showcase their work in the hope to gain fame and fortune. In this course we will discuss the most challenging art exhibitions held in Berlin in recent years by artists practising locally and elsewhere in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the Americas, Iceland and Africa.

Art and Memory
Art and Memory focuses on site-speciﬁc monuments commissioned after the fall of the Berlin Wall. These commemorate individuals and groups of people, and historic events associated with Berlin and Germany. Included is the stunning installation in honour of the life and work of Walter Benjamin, the deeply moving Track 17 and the Field of Stele in memory of the European Jews who perished in the holocaust. Another is The Wall Jumper, who unlike most of his fellow elopers from East Berlin, made it alive to the free West. But memory is not only related to past events—it’s a continuing process— which is why Mother by Käthe Kollwitz can be seen as the deﬁnitive work of our time. In terms of architecture, the award-winning restored Neues Museum, by David Chipperﬁeld, rounds up this course. Instructor: Maria Brendel, PhD Course Code: ASHA063 2011S C01 Date: Tuesdays, February 1 to March 8: 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, 6 sessions Fee: $95 plus $11.40 HST

The Paciﬁc Baroque Festival 2011 Throughout the winter, the Paciﬁc Baroque Festival is Victoria’s only opportunity for the concentrated appreciation of music provided by a festival. This course provides an exciting lead-up to the festival with discussions of the composers, the music, the stylistic intricacies of Baroque music and historical context. There will also be an opportunity to hear interviews with the performers, as well as to meet some of them to ask questions and hear live demonstrations of the music. The theme of this year’s festival centres on the Peace of Westphalia (1648), which ended the Thirty Years War and heralded the emergence of baroque music, nurtured in the courts of the newly established nation-states. The 2011 festival features the music of the violin virtuosos, Heinrich Schmelzer and Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber, who both fostered a unique Austrian tradition of Stylus Fantasticus from its origins in Italy.

A Mythic Journey through the World’s Sacred Music
Myths are humanity’s oldest form of engaging with and transmitting meaning across generations. A living myth is understood to be reality for those cultures in which it operates. Sacred music (and also dance) is the medium in which we can most instinctively relate with the deepest sources of meaning in any given culture. Listening to the myth and sacred music together provides a wonderful opportunity to enter into worlds of joy, loss, longing, nostalgia and devotion, enhancing our appreciation for the unknown, while noticing the profound connections that link all of humanity’s deepest aspirations. In each class we will focus on a selection of myths and music from a wide range of cultures, circling the earth. We begin our journey in India; subsequent travels may include Bali, China, Japan, the Indigenous and Latin Americas, Africa, Aboriginal Australia, Europe (medieval and contemporary), Turkey, Iran and back to India. Participants from all ethnic backgrounds are warmly welcomed.

Music in Peacetime
There are those who would argue that the world has never known a time of true peace. Absent the reality of a true peace, however, composers the world over have sought to create the illusion of peace through music. Essences of dream, desire and declamation of who we either are, aspire to be or believe ourselves to be are audible from behind the façade. Through the host of great works of music created during times of relative or uneasy peace, we glimpse our idealized selves, explore new territories and ponder our past and future. In this class we will explore some of the ﬁnest peacetime music, drawn from our recent and distant past. No prior experience in music is required. Instructor: Dr. Mary Byrne is Head of Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion at the Victoria Conservatory of Music.

Terrorism in the 21st Century: Change or Continuity? Are you a September 10 thinker or a September 12 thinker? Do you believe that terrorism has fundamentally changed since the attacks of September 11, 2001? Or not? Is Al Qaeda a unique, global
threat or something else? Are counterterrorism approaches that were in vogue before those attacks still valid today? Do we need new approaches that have not been tried before? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this session, which reviews the history of terrorism and the eﬀorts to deal with it from the 1960s to the present day. You will learn about the “new terrorism thesis” that emerged in the 1990s and examine the arguments for and against it.

Learning to Cherish Others
”Equalizing” and “exchanging self with others” are the universal teachings of Buddha, who handed down to us the secret to the purity already latent in our own hearts. The mind of loving kindness is a powerful source of true happiness for ourselves and others, and the source of hope for humanity. By increasing our love and kindness, we learn to take responsibility for our actions, and improve our relationships at home and in our community.

Under the Oaks: The History of Oak Bay
The Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela
Through stories and pictures we will ﬁrst explore how geology and geography shaped Oak Bay’s fate, and then move on to the adventures of the men and women who built Oak Bay. First Nations and early settlers and tales of derring-do on the high seas deliver us to Oak Bay’s glamorous heyday as the home of Rattenbury and European aristocrats. From its early days as Victoria’s open-aired playground to modern day, come and hear the stories that gave Oak Bay its cachet as the genteel epitome of an English seaside town.
Join Dr. Thompson as she examines the historical origins and nature of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela through lecture, images and the presentation of excerpts from a 12th-century text (to be provided in class). She will focus on such questions as: Who was Saint James? Why did the pilgrimage come into existence? What were the politics of the early pilgrimage? What was the nature of the Camino in the early years? Why were people attracted to the Camino? Who were the early pilgrims? What sorts of experiences did they have?

Modern Buddhism for Transforming Our Lives NEW!
When our wishes are not fulﬁlled we usually experience unpleasant feelings, such as unhappiness or depression. This is our problem because we are so attached to the fulﬁllment of our wishes. By practising Buddha’s teachings on renunciation, we can solve our daily problems that arise from attachment. We will come to understand that our problems do not exist outside of ourselves, but are part of our mind that experiences unpleasant feelings. Instructor: Gen Kelsang Zopa is a Buddhist monk who has studied Kadampa Buddhism for more than 15 years, as well as teaching extensively throughout Canada. He is currently Resident Teacher at Bodhichitta Buddhist Centre in Victoria.

Iran: A Critical Analysis of an Emerging Global Crisis NEW!
On campus or at Amica at Somerset House Iran is popularly understood in the West today as a nation that is destabilizing the Middle East through actions such as promoting terrorism, developing nuclear technology and refusing to recognize the State of Israel. Many in the region, however, see the West as the source of the problem. A long period of political interference to bolster corrupt regimes, unwavering support for Israel, and a need to control the ﬂow of oil have all created a feeling of distrust among many in the Middle East. In this presentation we will examine Iran’s recent history and its current political landscape to better understand the contemporary issues surrounding this country’s desire to harness nuclear technology and aggressively assert its role in the region. Instructor: Dr. Paul Chamberlain is a historical geographer who has taught at the University of Victoria for 18 years; he specializes in Middle East Studies and was recently invited to Iran by the University of Tehran.

The Anthropology of Magic While we won’t be discovering any previously unknown ancient or medieval spells, or raising any dead Egyptian pharaohs Hollywood style, we will be investigating the mechanisms of magic in ancient cultures. Magic has served many purposes throughout human history, and has inﬂuenced civilizations, religions, kings and best-selling novels since the beginning of time. Our investigation will lead us through both the dark side of magic in history, as well as its inﬂuential side that blurred the boundaries between magic and religion, reality and superstition. We’ll begin our journey in prehistoric times as we travel through the ancient Near East and Egypt, then touch on Africa and Asia, before heading through classical and medieval Europe, and on to the New World and Oceania in our search for connections between history, magic and ourselves.

The Archaeology of Southwest Asia The regions of southwestern Asia—Anatolia and the Fertile Crescent of the ancient Near East—have been called the “cradle of civilization” for good reason. It’s here that many of the original civilizations on which most of our own traditions are based ﬁrst began. The history and cultures of Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan all inﬂuenced the groundwork for Western Civilization as we know it today. With the defeat of the Persians by Alexander the Great, a new era began in this region and it is the transition between the civilizations of the ancient, Hellenistic and Islamic Near East that will draw our attention in this course.

Science and Technology in the Middle Ages This course will highlight how the science and technology of the ancient Western world was preserved and saved from the European “Dark Ages” by a ﬂourishing Arab culture. From there, we will investigate the eventual reawakening of knowledge in Europe that led the Western world into a renaissance of thoughts and ideas.
Some of the topics to be covered include: • an overview of the transmission and preservation of knowledge and learning from the ancient East and West • external inﬂuences that shaped European science and technology • the great minds and great deeds of the Middle Ages through ancient sources and archaeological evidence • examples of architecture and technology in Medieval Europe and Asia Instructor: Chris Mundigler, ACA, BA Course Code: ASHI296 2011S C01 Date: Tuesdays, February 1 to March 8: 7 to 9 pm, 6 sessions Fee: $95 plus $11.40 HST NEW!
Destination: Southern Peru
On Campus or at Berwick Royal Oak While much of southern Peru—Machu Picchu, Cuzco, Lake Titicaca—remains enigmatic and mysterious to most of us, Peru is really no diﬀerent than any other exotic and exciting place to travel to in the world. It is full of life, colour, people, markets, sights and smells that will tantalize any explorer or armchair traveler. Join us as we travel the highlights of this amazing region, from the high Andes to the lowland plains and coastal areas in photographs that will whet your appetite to see this “land of the Incas” for yourself.
On Campus or at Berwick Royal Oak Join us on a virtual expedition to two of the most desolate and enigmatic places on earth—Easter Island and Antarctica. At between 1,000 and 3,000 kilometres from anywhere these two “islands”—one smaller than Salt Spring Island, the other of continental proportions—oﬀer diametrically opposed landscapes. Both have harsh environments for humans to populate; both have seen their share of exploration and tragedy; and both oﬀer a unique look at what has been considered, at various times in human history, the ends of the Earth. This photographic tour will highlight the serene beauty of a tropical island and an icy wasteland; the enigmatic majesty of stone statues and ﬂightless penguins; a lava outcropping and a glacial wonderland.

The Lords of the Isles
The Lordship of the Isles evolved from Vikings raiders and Gaelic kings. The Western Isles of Scotland were on the main sea route from Scandinavia to Western Europe and the Mediterranean, and so were a valuable prize for the Norse who colonised the Hebrides and intermarried with the Gaels. In the 12th century, Somerled, an ancestor of the MacDonalds, created his own kingdom independent of the kingdom of Norway. The MacDonalds backed Robert Bruce in the Wars of Independence and received lands and charters from him, leading to a vast growth of Gaelic language and culture. The Lordship became too powerful for the Scottish kings to ignore and the Lordship of the Isles was forfeited in 1493. For 250 years the Clan Donald tried to retrieve the lands they had lost, to no avail. The Campbells and MacKenzies acquired much of the land lost by Clan Donald. Although the MacDonalds held no feudal title in Scotland above that of baron, they continued to inﬂuence the course of Scottish history.

The Celtic Church
Celtic spirituality is immensely popular today. Many believe the tenets of the Celtic Church show respect for nature in an era of pollution and exploitation. This course, however, will explore the origins of Celtic Christianity in Ireland and Scotland which were not without religion or spirituality in the early Middle Ages. You’ve heard about St. Patrick and St. Columba, but what about St. Fillan or St. Mungo? What do you really know about St. Bridget? What exactly was a Culdee and why is that ascetic community so well remembered? After Christianity was ﬁrmly established in Scotland and Ireland, the Church survived the assaults of the Vikings. We will study the inﬂuence of the Anglo-Normans on Scotland and Ireland, and ﬁnish with the spirituality of the early church which shone through the prayers of Scottish Gaels living in the 19th century. The lecturer is not a theologian, but a historian.

Where Does Democracy Come From? Precisely when did the world become “democratic”? This lecture will demonstrate that answering this question is more complex than it might appear. Answering the “when” question also requires us to take up both the “what” question (i.e., just what is democracy) and the “how” question (i.e., how did we go from non-democracy to democracy). As will be demonstrated, debate over what and how crucially aﬀects our ability to settle on just when the world becomes democratic.

Is Religion a Problem, a Solution, or Neither? Debunking Myths, and Building New Paths Surrounding Faith and Global Conﬂict Every corner of today’s world demonstrates the necessary connections between politics and religion. Yet, in the minds of many commentators and members of the public, religion (or at least key manifestations of it) remains a banishmentworthy instigator of political violence and social ills. However, religious belief and experience, as basic, holistic dimensions of human life, cannot be reduced to problems that must be solved if conﬂict is to be stemmed. Where religion contributes to violence, it is necessarily within complex arrangements of factors that also incorporate ethnic, national, cultural and linguistic identity; historical memory; economics; geostrategy and more. In fact, this lecture points to no less an example than the Israel–Palestine impasse in suggesting religion’s unique potential for helping to ease, rather than tighten, knotty global struggles.

Spring 2011 Public Issues Community Forum
Speaker: Professor Michael M’Gonigle, Faculty of Law, UVic
Encounters between humans and wildlife are not new. But it seems as though we are now experiencing more wildlife–human conﬂicts, particularly in our urban areas. As cities and suburbs expand and encroach onto what was once wild habitat, and as predator species increase at predictable rates, we’re left asking how these conﬂicts can be prevented. What is the role of provincial and local governments, farmers, businesses and individuals? What strategies are necessary in order to ensure biodiversity and human health and safety, while allowing for agricultural viability?

Why Study Canada?
24th Annual Medieval Workshop
A country as vast, diverse and ever-changing as Canada oﬀers near-limitless opportunities for study and reﬂection.
It has been estimated that the average life expectancy for men and women in Medieval Britain was only about 30 years. In the Middle East and North Africa the average lifespan may have been as long as 35. While such ﬁgures should be viewed with considerable scepticism, there seems little doubt that factors such as disease, war, economic inequality and poor diet and hygiene combined to make life for most people (to borrow the words of Thomas Hobbes) “nasty, brutish, and short.” Perhaps because life was so precarious, medieval readers in Europe and the Islamic world were avid consumers of the biographies of saints, political and religious leaders, poets, warriors, criminals and madmen. This workshop will explore the many ways in which the lives of medieval men and women were represented in words and images, and will ask what these representations can tell us about the societies for which they were made.
For more information or to apply to the program, contact Becky Cory at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a message at 250-361-7014.
HUMANITIES DIPLOMA PROGRAM Winner of a National Award of Excellence The Humanities Diploma Program has received an Award of Excellence from the Canadian Association for University Continuing Education.
Why Study the Humanities? Humanities are those studies created by the human desire for knowledge and understanding of our history, classical traditions, literature, language and philosophy. These studies encompass disciplines that address a variety of needs: to examine the ethical values in our lives, to examine our social responsibilities and to develop intellectually sound ways of reﬂecting on what it means to be a human being. Studying the humanities increases our appreciation of ideas and of various modes of thinking. It leads to a greater understanding of values within cultural and historical contexts. It can sharpen our skill in formulating our own ideas, developing them coherently and expressing them clearly and eﬀectively. It can help us read “diﬃcult” texts with increased comprehension and powers of analysis. It helps us learn how to learn.
Multicultural and multilingual, with a unique political, economic and social history, Canada deﬁes easy deﬁnitions and continues to fuel debate about its “identity” as a nation. The Canadian Studies Program is designed for fullor part-time local and international students who wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of Canada. In addition to three core courses in Canadian culture and issues, students may choose from a range of other courses related to Canada oﬀered by the faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts. Options for study include: • the diploma: a credit program that can be transferred toward an undergraduate degree • the certiﬁcate: a shorter, non-credit program • elective courses in Canadian studies Canadian Studies courses can be taken for credit (1.5 units) or for non-credit. Proﬁciency in English is required. A fee diﬀerential applies to international students. For more information about the Canadian Studies program, please contact the program secretary or visit the website: Phone 250-721-8481 Fax 250-721-8774 Email email@example.com Web www.continuingstudies.uvic.ca/ humanities/programs/
SPRING 2011 OFFERINGS

Space—The High Frontier
Coordinator: Dr. Anne Fraser
This lecture, designed for the general public, will show how space-related activities have had an impact on our daily lives. Since the ﬁrst artiﬁcial satellite to orbit the Earth some 60 years ago, we have come a long way in our exploration and utilization of space. Humans have landed on the Moon, can now live permanently in space on the International Space Station, and are looking to visiting Mars within the next few decades. Artiﬁcial satellites have travelled to the far reaches of the solar system and brought us images of far-ﬂung planets and asteroids. Space telescopes have looked even further into the early days of the formation of the universe. All these technologies have found applications in countless areas back here on Earth, giving us a quality of life hitherto only imagined in science ﬁction! Join your instructor on a space odyssey to bring this “high frontier” closer to you.

Busy Person’s Everyday Guide to Eating Locally: Spring NEW!
Discussions about eating locally have ﬁlled the media recently. But how do we make this ideal into a reality within busy lives and limited budgets? This practical course takes the mystique out of eating locally by providing speciﬁc information for Vancouver Islanders who want to support the local economy, eat healthily and contribute to a sustainable food system. These seasonal courses will provide information about meal planning, how to shop and make small adjustments in your daily routine to make local eating more possible, a seasonal calendar of what foods are available and where you can obtain them, resources and events which support local eating, recipes, food storage information, as well as information for participants who want to grow their own food. The spring version of the course will have a special emphasis on

Tapping the Potential of Bigleaf Maple Bigleaf maple is an important component of west coast forests. These trees also have a variety of characteristics which make them valuable to us. In this hands-on course, we will focus on the potential of Bigleaf maple as a source of sap and syrup. After learning about the theory of sap ﬂow and the ecology of these abundant trees, students will have the opportunity to walk through a maple stand which is being used for commercial sugaring, tap trees, collect sap, use the evaporator to make syrup and, of course, taste the wonderful product. Students will leave the course with a resource book and three spiles (included in course cost) so they can begin the process of tapping their own trees. Note: This course takes place in Ladysmith. Please bring a brown bag lunch. Instructors: Jay Rastogi is an ecoforestry practitioner and consultant who works with landowners to help them steward forests in ecologically appropriate ways. Gary and Katherine Backlund (along with wife/ mother Teesh) work together to manage a forest overlooking Ladysmith Harbour. After trying to replace the maples on their land with Douglas-ﬁr, they decided they should work with what grew best on their land. They have been tapping maples since 2001 and have authored the book Bigleaf Sugaring: Tapping the western maple.

Food from the Hood: The Role of Urban Agriculture in the Relocalization of Our Food System The “re-localization” of our food system is a hot topic for building more sustainable communities. Eating close to home through “buying local” is one of the ways we can spur economic development, eat healthier and decrease our ecological “footprint.” However, local agriculture is facing great challenges and currently demand outstrips supply. In an increasingly urbanized world, what about our ability to produce foods in cities? This course will look at the eﬀorts in Victoria and around the world to grow, process, market and distribute food in cities. The class and ﬁeld trip will explore grass roots

Wetlands are areas with soils that are saturated with water and include bogs, fens, swamps and marshes. In the past, wetlands and cities didn’t mix. Urbanization began with draining the wetlands to make room for buildings and roads. Today, wetlands are an integral part of low impact development and are used wisely in managing water on the landscape. Wetlands are important for stormwater management, assist in removing toxins from urban runoﬀ and help to maintain healthy ecosystems in the region. Facilitators: Val Schaefer is the academic administrator of the Restoration of Natural Systems Program, School of Environmental Studies. Jessica Miles is a graduate of UVic’s Environmental Studies Program who is involved with project work for the RNS Program. Admission to the following sessions is free, but call 250-472-4694 to register so we can guarantee you a spot on the walk. Note: These are not strenuous walks but sturdy footwear, a water bottle and rain gear are recommended. These sessions take place at oﬀ-campus locations.

New York, New York “Start Spreadin’ the News…” Like Liza Minnelli, how would you like to “wake up in the city that never sleeps”? There is no other city like New York. In many ways, it is the quintessential city; its name is an international byword for sophistication, excitement, and intensity—everything that a city should be. If you’ve never experienced the thrills and allures of Manhattan, now is your chance. Join our tour for an in-depth introduction to the culture of the Big Apple. Our nine-day stay in New York features guided tours of historical sites; visits to the city’s leading museums; and tickets to Broadway shows and a musical performance. The tour also allows plenty of free time for you to explore for yourself the most provocative city on earth.
Provence to Paris: A journey of discovery through France
We begin with four days in Lyon—founded by Julius Caesar, and a city which has long maintained its pivotal place as a centre of artistic creativity and innovation. We will explore spectacular vestiges of the Roman city, Lyon’s fascinating medieval and Renaissance history, and its vibrant cultural life— not forgetting the food and wine for which the area is justly famous! The city’s historical centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998, and oﬀers fascinating strolls through a history which seems just below the surface of the present. A leisurely trip by coach down the scenic Rhône valley leads us past medieval chateaux and slopes lined with vineyards. We will have opportunities for sampling some of the region’s distinguished vintages on our way south. Our base for discovering the sights, history and people of Provence will be the charming city of Arles, our home for the next four days. As well as
Eastern Turkey and the Black Sea Coast Beginning in Istanbul, this tour combines an 11-day land-based excursion to the less-travelled regions of Turkey—South-Eastern and Eastern Anatolia— with a nine-day cruise on the Black Sea, stopping in Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine and Greece, ending in Athens. After three nights in Istanbul we ﬂy south to Gaziantep, where we tour the main sites before heading by coach to Urfa, considered by some to be the birth place of Abraham. From here we visit the ancient city of Harran, with its mud beehive houses. We then travel to Kahta for an overnight stop, allowing us an early morning ascent of Mt. Nemrut, with its colossal statues and spectacular views. On our way to Van we stop in the walled city of Diyarbakir, built on the banks of the Tigris River. While in Van we enjoy a cruise on the lake to Akhtamar Island to visit the 10th century Church of the Holy Cross. From Van we travel to Erzurum, the “capital” and largest city in Eastern Turkey and then ﬂy to the Black Sea coastal town of Trabzon, where we have an excursion to a village deep in the magniﬁcent Kackar Mountains. On our return to Istanbul we board our home for the next nine days, the ﬁve-star Azamara Quest. Our last port of call is Athens, where we spend one full day before returning home.

Northern Italy, including Rome, Florence, Milan, Vicenza and Bologna, May 2012
The plays will be a mixture of modern drama and the classics, including Shakespeare. A complete selection of plays can only be determined near the start of the orientation course, since most English theatres do not announce their repertory much in advance. However, play titles will be circulated as early as possible. Group discussions of every play seen will be held at appropriate times throughout the tour. Accommodation is in three-star hotels or better, and a full breakfast is included daily. Please note that the tour does include some walking, as well as climbing stairs in theatres.

Jordan and Syria contain some of the ﬁnest archaeological sites, natural wonders and vibrant cultures in the world. As a bridge between the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the deserts of the Middle East on the other, this region is a unique blend of many diﬀerent phases of human history— Mesopotamian, Biblical, Christian, Islamic, Crusader, medieval and modern—all converging to form an open-air museum like none other.
Shaw and Stratford Theatre Festivals, September 2012
From the Dead Sea to Petra, Lawrence of Arabia’s Wadi Rum to the bazaars of Damascus, the desert splendour of Palmyra to magniﬁcent medieval castles: Jordan and Syria have it all and so much more—with people who are warm and friendly and hospitality that will draw you into their lives and their amazing history.
