American Diplomacy and the Holocaust
 

As the Nazis took power in Germany, the United States also had a new leader, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. What were the opportunities that the United States had to confront Nazi Germany and its persecution and mass murder of Europe’s Jews? How did American decisions impact upon the fate of Europe’s Jews? In this lecture, join former U.S Foreign Service officer Arthur Berger in his discussion on the key events of the 1930’s and 1940’s and American reactions to them.

All You Can Eat: A Culinary History of America
 

We think about food all the time, but that doesn’t have to mean meal-planning or calorie-counting or deciding what to order for takeout. We can also think about food historically. “It’s as American as apple pie” your mother might say, but what makes apple pie “American?” In reality, food culture has changed along with American society; what foods our grandparents considered “normal” were vastly different than what we eat today. Just a quick taste: one of the most recognizable “American” foods actually disgusted Americans when a German from Hamburg introduced it to them in the 1870s. But, now the hamburger is so thoroughly American that there are over 50,000 burger joints in the country. Throughout American history, food has been a battleground where culture, ethnicity, race, and identity clash. Food can be threatening. In fact, New Yorkers initially found spaghetti and meatballs so dangerous to American values they sought to outlaw the dish.  If “you are what you eat,” then what is America? Join award-winning professor Allen Pietrobon for a lecture that will eat its way through American history, exploring American food culture since 1850 and examining how what Americans ate both drove and reflected historical changes.

Dr. Allen Pietrobon

Allen's teaching and research subjects generally cover American history 1865-present, specializing in Cold War history, humanitarianism, peace activism, and American foreign policy. Since 2011 Allen has served as an Assistant Director of Research at American University’s Nuclear Studies Institute and has traveled to Hiroshima, Nagasaki and most recently, Chernobyl, to pursue his interest in the global history of nuclear weapons. Allen's current research explores early Cold War origins of "citizen diplomacy" by examining the impact that prominent American journalist, Norman Cousins, had on American public discourse and foreign policy during the early Cold War. Cousins and many other border crossing citizen diplomats sought to challenge orthodox American policies and also to propose new avenues towards peace and security. During the Cold War, various American citizens from diverse backgrounds, fed up with the pitfalls of contemporary U.S. policy, sought to spread their ideas through international travel and informal diplomacy. He received his Ph.D. in American History and Foreign Policy at American University, where he serves as an Assistant Director of Research at the Nuclear Studies Institute.

Why Disco Gets No Respect: From Disco Inferno to Disco Demolition
 

Why did (do?) so many people love to hate disco?  Was the fierce backlash against disco just about music or did it also mask debates regarding race, class and, especially, sexuality?  This talk will trace disco music’s rise from underground clubs to the top of the charts.  It will look at how an article about a dance club in Brooklyn, an article its British author later admitted he mostly made up, became the movie Saturday Night Fever, which spread disco nationwide, and then worldwide.  Elite NY society enjoyed “good times” at Studio 54 and rockers, including the Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart, recorded disco hits.  But even as disco music filled mid-‘70s dance floors with white suits and slinky dresses, rock fans fought back.  “Disco sucks” buttons sprouted on more and more denim jackets, ultimately leading to “Disco Demolition Night,” where thousands of disco records were blown up at a Chicago White Sox game.  “Freak Out” indeed.

About Mark Sullivan

Mark Sullivan has long been a music collector geek. However, he eventually became interested in the role all of that pop music played in my life and the lives of others. So he started studying it a bit more formally, earning an MA in American Studies, with a specialty in popular culture, and a PhD in Public Communication. Eventually, he switched sides of the desk and began to teach about popular culture as well. He currently teaches Mass Media and Society at Towson University and Modern Popular Culture at Walden University. He has also taught various courses on the history of popular music at the Smithsonian Institution. He continues to fritter away his time and money on music and other forms of popular culture. But now it’s for research purposes.

Philip Roth Part I: Mothers and sons; fathers and daughters
 

With his death earlier this year at age 85, Philip Roth left American letters a much poorer place. Roth’s unique place in the literature of the past 60 years was dominated by his intense focus on issues that define America and its struggles to live up to its ideals, particularly with regard to religious, racial, and ethnic minorities--and how that intersects the large picture of humanity. The particular lens through which he examined issues, borne of his own experience growing up in Newark, New Jersey, was that of American Jews, both immigrants and their native-born offspring. He used that lens to address not only matters that resonate for all Americans, but for all human beings curious about what we are as a species. This two-part series will focus on five of Roth’s extraordinary novels and the world of questions he raises.

”All That Zazz” The Long Musical Collaboration of John Kander and Fred Ebb
 

John Kander and Fred Ebb created hundreds of excellent songs during a 45-year collaboration in musical theater from 1959-2004, one of the longest lasting and most productive musical partnerships in Broadway history. Starting with their first big hit song in 1959 “My Coloring Book,” most famously recorded by Barbra Streisand, Kander and Ebb went on to create award winning shows as “Flora, the Red Menace” (1965); “Cabaret” (1966); “The Happy Time” (1968);  “Zorba” (1968); “Chicago” (1975;  “Woman of the Year” (1981); “The Rink”( 1984); “Kiss of the Spider Woman”( 1993),; “Steel Pier”(1997); “Curtains”(2007); and “The Scottsboro Boys” (2010). Kander and Ebb also penned some great film scores, especially their title song for “New York, New York,” Martin  Scorsese’s 1977 tribute to classic movie musicals and the city of his birth and one of Frank Sinatra’s biggest song hits.  Please join Steve Klitzman for his 14th class on American musical theater featuring Kander & Ebb, creators of some of the most memorable show tunes of the past 60 years.

Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone but 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, stability balls, medicine balls, resistance bands, weighted body bars, 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.

The Nine Lives of Benjamin Franklin - Part II
 

Rivaled only by Washington, Benjamin Franklin was, at his death in 1790, the most famous man in America. Franklin’s rise to prominence and power first in Philadelphia, and then in London and Paris, was nothing short of meteoric. His very public achievements – in business, science, philanthropy, politics, and diplomacy – were remarkable in his day, and even more so by the standards of our own. Yet for all we know about Franklin the icon, something of the man himself still seems to elude us, and his many contradictions remain both puzzling and glaring.  How can we resolve these several Franklins into one? As Richard Bell, a professor of history at the University of Maryland, explains, it’s Franklin’s many faces that make him so compelling. His multiplicity and his capacity for complexity render him not only inscrutable and inimitable but also so wonderfully flawed and familiar. Both ordinary and extraordinary, Franklin – the man with nine lives –winks at us and dares us to wink back.

He is the author of several journal articles, most recently in the Journal of the Early Republic, Early American Literature, Slavery and Abolition, and History Compass.

Professor Bell has published two books. The first, a monograph titled We Shall Be No More: Suicide and Self-Government in the Newly United States, examines the role that discourse regarding self-destruction played in the cultural formation of the early republic. The second work, Buried Lives: Incarcerated in Early America, a co-edited volume of essays centered on the experience of incarcerated subjects and citizens in early America, is the product of a conference organized at the McNeil Center in April 2009.

Prof. Bell has held research fellowships at more than a dozen libraries and institutes. Since 2006 he has served as the Mellon Fellow in American History at Cambridge University, the National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow at the American Antiquarian Society, a Mayer Fellow at the Huntington Library, a Research Fellow at the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Abolition and Resistance at Yale University and as a Resident Fellow at the John W Kluge at the Library of Congress.

Ethnic Minorities in China
 

Today China recognizes fifty-five official ethnic groups in addition to the Han. This session will explain how these groups came to be by going back in time to examine the invention and reinvention of ethnic identity in different eras of Chinese history. We will learn how the evolution of ideas about ethnicity in China owes much to the influence of cultural outsiders, with an emphasis on the role of the northern nomads in the premodern era and the Soviet Union in the twentieth century.

Philip Roth Part II: Race, religion, socio-economics, and politics
 

With his death earlier this year at age 85, Philip Roth left American letters a much poorer place. Roth’s unique place in the literature of the past 60 years was dominated by his intense focus on issues that define America and its struggles to live up to its ideals, particularly with regard to religious, racial, and ethnic minorities--and how that intersects the large picture of humanity. The particular lens through which he examined issues, borne of his own experience growing up in Newark, New Jersey, was that of American Jews, both immigrants and their native-born offspring. He used that lens to address not only matters that resonate for all Americans, but for all human beings curious about what we are as a species. This two-part series will focus on five of Roth’s extraordinary novels and the world of questions he raises.

America’s Russia Problem: The Trump-Putin Saga
 

Russian-American relations have been unusually controversial since the Bolshevik Revolution a century ago.  The periods of non-recognition of the Soviet government, the WWII alliance, the Cold War, and the Post-Cold War periods brought great challenges to policy makers and diplomats.  But the current period is in many ways the most curious of all.  The nature of the Trump-Putin relationship is complex, and the possibility of the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia during the presidential campaign is still waiting for conclusive answers.  Today’s talk will discuss the importance of getting Russian-American relations back on the tracks despite the various controversies and differences.

Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone but 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, stability balls, medicine balls, resistance bands, weighted body bars, 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.

Sugarloaf: The Singular History of a Singular Mountain
 

Sugarloaf Mountain, a private oasis of natural beauty and scenic vistas that is open to the public, nearly became Camp David and was almost topped with a modernistic structure designed by one of America’s most famous architects, Frank Lloyd Wright, which instead ended up as a New York City landmark. This extensively illustrated talk explores these and other historical oddities of this tiny mountain that sits all by itself just over the Montgomery County line in Frederick County.

The Ringstrasse of Vienna: A Boulevard for an Empire
 

In the wake of the 1814/15 Vienna Congress, which redrew the political map of Europe, the capital of the Habsburg Empire experienced rapid growth. To meet the new demands on the city, young emperor Franz Joseph I decided to replace the medieval walls protecting the historic center with a large, elegant boulevard and line it with public buildings that reflected his ambitions for a multi-nation state. In this talk we will discuss this grand urban project and consider the architects who were responsible for the design of the many remarkable buildings on or near the Ringstrasse, such as the State Opera, Museum of Art History, and Otto Wagner Pavilions, in styles as different as Neoclassical, Neo-Baroque, and Art Nouveau.

Leave it to Levitt: The American Suburbs in the 1950’s
 

In the decade following WWII, 20 million Americans moved from the city to the newly built suburbs. In part of the greatest migration in human history, certainly in American history, some 15% of the entire population moved from the city centers into “far-flung” suburban homes in places like Glenmont (a planned 1950s D.C. suburb). Brand new tracts of mass-produced housing sprouted seemingly overnight from what were once farm fields; single-family home ownership soon came to symbolize the American dream. The postwar era ushered in an entirely new ideal of American living. Quaint houses with lush green lawns for the kids to play in, all neatly contained behind white picket fences. Two large luxurious American cars in the driveway. This is the idyllic way the iconic 1950s suburbs are remembered today. Welcoming. Friendly. Safe. White. The suburban ideal embodied the reality of racial division in postwar America. As the cities emptied of whites, “urban” became synonymous with black. City centers were viewed as rife with poverty, drugs and crime. African-Americans were largely barred from purchasing suburban homes, as a result the suburbs became a prime battleground of civil rights activism. The “ideal” of the suburbs continues to invoke deep-seated notions of race, class, and gender.  Join award-winning professor Allen Pietrobon as he explores American life in the 1950s. How and why did the unique form of suburban living first arise in America? What are the legacies of the suburbs and how did they shape American politics, culture, race relations, and gender dynamics?

Dr. Allen Pietrobon

Allen's teaching and research subjects generally cover American history 1865-present, specializing in Cold War history, humanitarianism, peace activism, and American foreign policy. Since 2011 Allen has served as an Assistant Director of Research at American University’s Nuclear Studies Institute and has traveled to Hiroshima, Nagasaki and most recently, Chernobyl, to pursue his interest in the global history of nuclear weapons. Allen's current research explores early Cold War origins of "citizen diplomacy" by examining the impact that prominent American journalist, Norman Cousins, had on American public discourse and foreign policy during the early Cold War. Cousins and many other border crossing citizen diplomats sought to challenge orthodox American policies and also to propose new avenues towards peace and security. During the Cold War, various American citizens from diverse backgrounds, fed up with the pitfalls of contemporary U.S. policy, sought to spread their ideas through international travel and informal diplomacy. He received his Ph.D. in American History and Foreign Policy at American University, where he serves as an Assistant Director of Research at the Nuclear Studies Institute.

Anti-Americanism and U.S. Foreign Relations
 

Many Americans see a hostile world plagued by “anti-Americanism” that seems to be growing in the Trump era. Experts in and out of government have explained that “anti-Americanism” comes from foreigners who dislike America’s modern society and democratic nature or envy its great wealth and power. Friedman challenges the conventional wisdom, revealing on the basis of research in nine countries how the concept of “anti-Americanism” has been misused for more than 200 years to stifle domestic dissent and dismiss foreign criticism, from the War of 1812 to the Cold War, from Vietnam to Iraq. The world does not hate the United States; on the contrary, Americans’ unique obsession with the notion of “anti-Americanism” leads them to misunderstand the world, leading to policy failures and producing negative consequences for the country.

Canon Law: Church and Society in the Middle Ages and Beyond
 

During the high Middle Ages, learned law was the ius commune, a combination of Roman, canon, and (to a lesser extent) feudal law. This lecture will discuss this moment in legal history, with particular focus on what makes canon law distinctive in its operations and what legacies it bequeaths to modern law. Equity, legal norms, torture, the inquisition method, and the relationship between canon law and the infamous witch hunts will all be discussed. This is the second of a three-part series, but it is also comprehensible as a stand-alone lecture.  

Caroline R. Sherman, PhD, Professor of History, Author 

Thursday             1:00 PM to 2:30 PM        Nov 8

Dr. Caroline R. Sherman

Caroline R. Sherman works on early modern intellectual history. Her book, Uses of the Dead: The Early Modern Development of Cy-Près Doctrine, examines how a common law rule (to “approximate” the purpose of failing charitable trusts) evolved out of—and in opposition to—ius commune norms on gifts. The book traces the relationship between the creation of the doctrine and the broader cultural context: transformations of the fourteenth century, the rise of humanism, and the aftermath of the secularizations of church property in the Reformation. She is currently working on a book about the Godefroy family of legal-historical scholars.

EDUCATION: Princeton University Ph.D. in History, 2008: “The Genealogy of Knowledge: The Godefroy Family, Erudition, and Legal-Historical Service to the State.” Advisor: Anthony Grafton. M.A. in History, 2002. General Examination Fields: Renaissance and Reformation (Anthony Grafton); Eighteenth-Century France (Robert Darnton); Seventeenth-Century Intellectual History (Theodore K. Rabb). Harvard University A.B. in History, summa cum laude, 1999. Thesis: “From Sight to Light: Nicholas of Cusa on the Active Life.” Advisor: James Hankins. Phi Beta Kappa (elected Junior year).

Total Body Strength Workout for Seniors
 

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone but 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, stability balls, medicine balls, resistance bands, weighted body bars, 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.

The British Influence on the Broadway Musicals
 

Once upon a time it was Americana that created the Broadway Musical. Our culture our ideals and our values all were front and center. However borrowing a classic British play and re-inventing it to focus on British class issues suddenly created a new interest on things British. Suddenly as time went on not only were their themes interesting but their creative invention was now led by Brits as well. American creative energy was suddenly given over to British impresarios like Trevor Nunn, Cameron Macintosh, Andrew Lloyd Weber and Elton John. How did they steal our art form? Or did they just borrow it and reinvent it? Let’s explore how the British changed everything for two decades.

He has studied with leading teachers nationally and has enhanced his perception of theatre by not just performing, but by looking at its roots from a historical perspective. Steve has performed in many venues over the years including the Kennedy Center, and was a soloist for 35 years in a local choir. He has studied with teachers of national repute from those at Carnegie Mellon and Michigan State University to former divas of the Metropolitan Opera. Steve’s love of theatre has enabled him to be on the board of a nationally recognized non-profit theatre in Washington, DC. Steve believes that music creates emotional reactions and prides himself on helping audiences enjoy the perspective of musical theatre history.
