The Role of the Whistleblower in U.S. Democracy
 

The whistleblower is essential to congressional oversight; investigative journalism; and the public’s awareness of important national and international security issues.  The speaker will address his own experiences as a whistleblower in testifying to the Senate intelligence committee in 1991 to block the confirmation of Robert Gates as director of central intelligence.  He will also discuss such whistleblowers as Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning; and the current White House whistleblower.  The lack of protections for whistleblowers in the intelligence community will be assessed.

From Byzantium to Renaissance – the Beginnings of Western Painting
 

This lecture will look at the evolution of panel painting from the Byzantine icons to the medieval frescos of Giotto to the early Renaissance paintings of Sandro Botticelli. Byzantine icons were  a continuous influence in Italy until Giotto, the most celebrated painter of the 14th century. His works, such as in the Arena Chapel in Padua foreshadowed the Renaissance style of a Florentine painter, Sandro Botticelli. Born a century after Giotto, Botticelli became one of the most prolific painters of the 15th century and most famous for his large-scale “Primavera” and “Birth of Venus.”

Television and the Broadway Musical - Part I
 

Once upon a time television needed filler content. There were many new series , but the variety show became the mainstay of early television. These shows needed to have performers from New York as Hollywood Studios would not allow their talent to perform on TV and if they did their movie careers were over. See how a relationship in the early TV era with Broadway fulfilled a talent and entertainment gap and brought the musical live into homes across America. It was the “Ed Sullivan Show”, “Hallmark Hall of Fame” among others that installed Broadway into our living rooms. In these two sessions we will sample a variety of Musicals moments from Broadway brought to television.

The Long History of American Citizens Meddling in Foreign Affairs
 

The 1799 Logan Act declares it illegal for private citizens to attempt to influence or interfere with U.S. foreign policy. And yet, everyone from to jazz musician Louis Armstrong to Hollywood frontman George Clooney to NBA star Dennis Rodman have acted unofficially as citizen diplomats in their own ways over the years. Is this so-called citizen diplomacy wrong? Or worse, illegal? Or should we perhaps be encouraging private attempts to improve international relations? Join award-winning Professor of Global Affairs Allen Pietrobon, as he guides us through the long history of private citizens attempting to meddle in U.S. foreign relations for better or for worse. We’ll follow globe-trotting citizens from France to Japan to Russia, some with virtuous intent, some with self-serving malice in mind as we explore how the actions of private American citizens have had a major (but maybe illegal?) impact on U.S. foreign policy over the years.

Poster Art of Theater
 

Poster is the art of the street. Like a street actor, it calls out, stops a viewer, and gathers a crowd. Poster impartially tells about the events, both significant and almost forgotten. Poster cannot be placed only within the framework of a short-lived sheet of paper. The two-dimensional space of a poster contains a multi-dimensional world. People, events, characters, time - a poster is telling their stories. Circus managers, followed by cabaret, music hall and musical theater impresarios, were the first to realize a power of the pictorial color poster for attracting audiences.

Television and the Broadway Musical - Part II
 

Once upon a time television needed filler content. There were many new series , but the variety show became the mainstay of early television. These shows needed to have performers from New York as Hollywood Studios would not allow their talent to perform on TV and if they did their movie careers were over. See how a relationship in the early TV era with Broadway fulfilled a talent and entertainment gap and brought the musical live into homes across America. It was the “Ed Sullivan Show”, “Hallmark Hall of Fame” among others that installed Broadway into our living rooms. In these two sessions we will sample a variety of Musicals moments from Broadway brought to television.

The Synagogue: Beauteous Form and Function
 

This illustrated lecture asks when the idea of the synagogue emerged and when and where the first synagogue buildings were located? What is the symbolic language of their structure and decor? When and why is a synagogue called a temple? What are some of the most interesting and exotic structures--and how and why have they changed (and not changed) across time and space--from antiquity to the present; from the Galilee to Syria to China, from Italy to Russia to Germany, from Newport to Cleveland to Philadelphia?

Van Gogh, The Final Years— Revelation in St. Remy
 

In May, 1889, Vincent van Gogh committed himself voluntarily to the asylum at St. Remy. Fortunately, Vincent was allowed to continue painting at his brother Theo’s request. A year later when he left, the artist had produced some 150 paintings including such famous works as “Irises” and the iconic “Starry Night”.  This presentation will offer highlights of this creative period from Vincent’s unforgettable interpretations of the asylum’s private garden, to the cypress-filled fields of the nearby countryside where he was allowed to paint, to the view from his room, particularly of the evening sky, inspiration for “Starry Night”.

Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older.

We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down.

The Dreyfus Affair, Part I: Symbol ofThe Republic’s Failed Promise
 

The Dreyfus Affair was the seminal moment in French and European history when modernity, nationalism & antisemitism hinted at the horrors of the coming 20th century. In this lecture we will review the historical and political context in which France found itself during the post-1871 era, emphasizing those factors which made her citizens vulnerable to an upsurge of political paranoia and religious bigotry. We will examine the details of the wrongful conviction of officer Alfred Dreyfus on charges of espionage on behalf of Germany in 1894 and how his Jewish identity came to be the central element of the Affair.

Prelude to Castro: The Guatemala Coup Brings the Cold War to Latin America
 

In 1954, the CIA for the first time tried its hand at regime change in Latin America by orchestrating the overthrow of the elected president of Guatemala, Jacobo Arbenz. Professor Friedman explains the reasons for the coup, its relation to the larger Cold War, and its far-reaching consequences. These included sparking three decades of civil war in Guatemala and the radicalization of Latin American leftists, some of whom abandoned electoral paths to power and joined Fidel Castro to stage a revolution in Cuba.

The Dreyfus Affair, Part II: France on Trial
 

The Dreyfus Affair only truly began in the aftermath of Alfred Dreyfus’ conviction and exile in Devil’s Island. In this lecture we examine how this gross miscarriage of justice took place with the knowledge and complicity of important members of the military and political hierarchy. We will assess how the ensuing division of French society into two rival camps (a division that permeated all of society from the military to men of letters and which lasted even beyond the retrial, pardon--1899--and exoneration--1906--of Dreyfus) became the enduring political legacy of the country as well as a preview of a future where nationalism and antisemitism thrived together, not just in France but in the whole of Europe.

Marketing the Jewish State - The ‘Palestine Pavilion’ at the 1939 World’s Fair
 

As storm clouds gathered in Europe with the rise of Hitler and an increasingly desperate situation developed for German Jews, the idea of creating a haven for Jews in Palestine became even more relevant.  At a time when world’s fairs were popular platforms for educating visitors and swaying public opinion, a coalition of American Zionists, businesspeople, and artists worked together to create the largest physical representation the U.S. had ever seen, of burgeoning Jewish life in the land of Israel.  We will explore the drama and diplomacy behind the scenes that allowed the Palestine Pavilion to open and welcome millions of visitors – and we’ll hear the words of a somewhat surprising celebrity spokesman for the exhibit.

The Buddhas of Bamiyan
 

The standing stone Buddha statues of Bamiyan in Afghanistan were the largest Buddhist statues in the world until their destruction by the Taliban in 2001. In this talk, we will delve into the history of the Bamiyan Buddhas: their construction, original purpose and function, and how they exemplified the epitome of Buddhist civilization in Central Asia. We will also examine their complex and surprising relationship with successive Muslim rulers of Afghanistan, as a means of placing their destruction by the Taliban into proper historical context.

Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone, and especially for seniors. This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training. Experts believe the resistance exercises may forestall declines in strength and muscle mass for decades. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down. No matter how old you are, exercise can improve your quality of life and you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it to see and feel improvements.

Two Harriets: Tubman and Beecher Stowe
 

“So you’re the little lady who started this great war!” said President Abraham Lincoln in the fall of 1862 when he finally met Harriet Beecher Stowe. This “little lady” was the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin a roller-coaster anti-slavery novel that had become a huge best-seller after its publication in 1852. Lincoln and many other people at the time believed that Stowe’s novel had caused the Civil War by intensifying public sentiment against slavery in the North and by spurring a reactionary surge of proslavery feeling in the states that would later secede from the United States to form the Confederate States of America. But Lincoln might just have well have been talking to and about Harriet Tubman. Like Stowe, Tubman’s activism advanced the fight against slavery and edged this country closer to Civil War. As the most famous conductor on the Underground Railroad, Tubman and her allies built an antislavery escape network that stretched from the bowels of the slave South all the way into British Canada. Join us for a talk about both of these American icons with University of Maryland historian Dr. Richard Bell.
