Lifelong University: From Treaties to Speeches: U.S. Diplomacy Between the Wars, 1919-1941

After the destructiveness of World War I, the U.S. as well as the rest of the world wanted to avoid another global conflict. This course will examine the efforts to keep the U.S. at peace, including treaties negotiated by the government and speeches by prominent Americans, such as Charles Lindbergh.

Lifelong University: The Thinking Eye: A Designer Looks at Visual Art

Just as music is the poetry of sound, wrote American artist James A.M. Whistler, so is painting "the poetry of sight.” This is a series of slide talks on art, design, architecture and other kinds of visual art from the viewpoint of a person who sees art not only as self expression but as significant, intricate patterns, based on a “language of vision.” Drawing heavily on psychology, ethology and other topics, these fast-paced presentations look “behind the scenes” at the historic and current use of age-old form principles by artists, designers and architects—as well as musicians and poets.

Lifelong University: Intercultural-intergenerational Listening

We spend more time in listening than in almost any other activity, and yet, we take listening for granted. This workshop will focus on listening effectiveness as we interact with members of other cultures and co-cultures. While the focus is on intercultural listening, participants will also look at the similarities and differences in listening to younger generations as well as other cultures. The workshop is highly interactive and will include both discussion and application activities. Register on the Lifelong University website.
