Folk Storytelling on Three Continents

Folklore, storytelling, and the oral tradition are three terms used to describe non-scripted, verbal documentation and transmission of knowledge. While similarities exist worldwide, regional narratives reflect memories and information of particular importance to the immediate tribe, clan, or people. Folk storytelling methods and habits among the inhabitants of North America, eastern South America, and Africa will be introduced. The transitions from oral to written forms will be analyzed, followed by modern voices of storytelling and written and recorded preservation of folktales and stories.

French Canadian Art and Literature

Following in the French tradition, French Canadian art is political in that it reflects current social, economic, and political practices, criticizes policies, and publicly offers a platform of dissent. Because visual art and literature are often collaborative efforts, artists of all artistic mediums create dialogue and illustrate the stances taken by their professional colleagues. Early French Canadian painting and sculpture, mid-20th century film, theater, poetry, and music vocalizing the Quiet Revolution, the Automatiste dissidents, and modern art will be introduced, contextualized, and analyzed.

Communications

Gender Communication

This course is about the relationship between gender and communication in modern society. We can start by asking ourselves, “what is gender?” and “how does gender influence our everyday communication?” Through participation in this course, students will learn about the differences between sex and gender as biological and social constructs, what it means to perform a gendered identity, and gendered communication patterns from a variety of theoretical lenses. We will also spend time dispelling gender stereotypes as we examine current trends in the media and everyday talk.

Shakespeare has continued to entertain and enlighten generations of students for more than five centuries. His plays are performed daily all over the world to filled theaters and venues of all sorts. But why is the Bard as he is often called so popular and why do his stories still resonate with a modern audience?

We will also watch a PBS Frontline production Much Ado About Something which poses the question of the ages, “Who Really Wrote These Plays?” Including an A&E biography William Shakespeare: A Life of Drama (2004) and Shakespeare in Love (1998) starring Joseph Fiennes, Gwyneth Paltrow and Geoffrey Rush.

Three Colors Trilogy

This boldly cinematic trio of stories about love and loss from Krzysztof Kieslowski was a defining event of the art-house boom of the 1990s. The films were named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution—liberty, equality, and fraternity—but this hardly begins to explain their enigmatic beauty and rich humanity. Set in Paris, Warsaw, and Geneva, and ranging from tragedy to comedy, Blue, White, and Red (Kieslowski’s final film) examine with artistic clarity a group of ambiguously interconnected people experiencing profound personal disruptions.

“Search for the Historical Jesus” Part 1

Is Jesus and His story historical? What are we to believe? Why is it important in times like these? Our study will focus on the modern scholarship and current debate as to the historical accounts and many hypothesis regarding what Jesus was like and what He most likely said and did. In a world filled with religious conflict and misunderstanding, our perspective is even more important.

Bright Personality Series: Life and Work of Sergei Prokofiev

In addition to the aesthetic pleasure, classical music has a therapeutic effect on us: like good wine. By listening to classical music, we become calmer and maybe a little happier. What type of influence does the music of Sergei Prokofiev’s have on you? Do you remember the children’s “Peter and the Wolf,” or the more serious works such as symphonies? Let’s talk about Prokofiev, listen to his music, and let’s highlight the vivid scenes of his work and biography...

Tom Fisher: The Weird, Amazing and Incredible

This series is devoted to a potpourri of themes that touch on a series of facts and subjects related to individual interpretation. The themes range from strange and exotic burials, to recently vanished bodies of water, too little and giant peoples and to a unique sea creature. The series is presented in gorgeous color, often in sound, and in a theater-like environment.

Bog People and Giant Skeletons

This session focuses on bog bodies—human remains naturally mummified in peat bogs. They are geographically and chronologically widespread and dated between 8,000 B.C. and 2nd World War. Partially preserved, they most likely died from violent deaths or were used for human sacrifice. Following this is a review on giant skeletons found in various locations throughout the world. Much skepticism abounds about their actual authenticity and provides a fascinating story as we unfold the truth about these giants.

Ice and Water

This is a revealing update on Ozi the iceman likely the most tattooed ancient man yet found. He died high in the Italian Alps more than 5,000 years ago. His remains are astonishing as to their preservation and condition. New data as to his death enlighten us to his plight. Next is the Russian Aral Sea, formerly 1 of the 4 lakes that are the largest in the world is now gone as rivers. The story is fascinating plus the vast number of archaeological finds associated with the lake.

Earth Aliens and Pompeii Ghosts

We begin with the recent discovery of a possible new human species—skeletons 3.5 ft. tall found buried on Flores Island in Indonesia; a fascinating and incredible story of perhaps a new 12,000-year-old species. Next up is Pompeii and its ash covered bodies covered by Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. eruption. Excavators’ fill ash covered shells of the deceased with plaster bringing back to life the tragic positions of their death throes.

Catacombs Mystery and Witches

Beneath Rome’s Streets lies a city of the dead known as the Catacombs. A labyrinth of tunnels 100s of miles long are neatly laid out tombs of ancient Rome’s citizens. Who were they? What killed them? Could they be Christian Martyrs massacred by the Roman Emperor: Or were they slain by a Deadly plague? We will examine the theories and present newly discovered secrets of life, death and disease in the Empires heyday. Next, we will discuss witches—the belief in the power of magic may be mankind’s oldest faith. We will trace their history from 1550 to 1650 and discuss their practiced dark arts and acts. Many were herbalists and healers but some were considered evil. During this era, some 60,000 witches were executed.

Antikythera and Mermaids

The Antikythera mechanism was an ancient analog computer designed to predict astronomical positions and eclipses for calendrical and astrological purposes. It was discovered in 1900 in the Antikytherea shipwreck off the Greek Island of Antikytherea; it is believed to have been designed and constructed by Greek scientists around 205 B.C. Finally, we will tackle both the legends and the possibility of mermaids—a legendary sea creature chronicled in maritime cultures since time immemorial. But are mermaids real? No formal evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Or has it? So join us in a lively reality discussion on this hotly debated subject.

The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book (short sections), watching the DVD and meeting in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Each year, eight topics are chosen by a panel of experts. This years topics are Middle East Alliances, The Rise of ISIS, The Future of Kurdistan, Migration, The Koreas, The United Nations, Climate Change, and Cuba and the U.S. Members will need to purchase GREAT DECISIONS, 2016 EDITION, and read the topic of the week in preparation for discussion at the first meeting. The book will be about $25 and can be ordered at: www.fpa.org/great_decisions
