New! Focusing on universal themes as reflected in the lives and legacies of notable women who defied convention and stereotype, this seminar format discussion group will be led and researched by both the facilitator and class participants. Formatted as an informal, round table exchange of ideas and information, each week’s discussion will be co-facilitated by pre-selected class participants through the presentation of supplementary, independent research and questions to ponder. Five pairs of women as diverse as Rosa Parks and Aung San Suu Kyi, Amelia Earhart and Dr. Sally Ride, Diane Arbus and Cindy Sherman, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Virginia Woolf will be distributed or referenced prior to each seminar. While there is no required textbook, independent reading, research and more than a nodding acquaintance with the Internet is strongly encouraged in order for all participants to be appropriately engaged. To keep topic selection as current as possible, and to ensure adequate preparation for group discussion, a final syllabus will be sent to registrants no later than one week prior to class beginning.
Course Fee: $35
