Using textual and archaeological primary resources, this short class examines the history of a small sliver of land in the Eastern Mediterranean whose role in world religion, culture, economics, and geopolitics appears quite disproportionate to its total acreage. From ancient texts and the ruins of Canaanite and other early civilizations through the layers of conquest by global forces of ancient Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome to periods of exile and resettlement that spanned millennia, we will examine the ever-shifting cartography that includes terms like Judaea, Palestine, and Israel.

Twenty years after the sequencing of the human genome, medical researchers now propose to edit human genomes to correct genetic disease. How will they do so? And what limits should we place on this technology?

These distinguished speakers will address the advantages of CRISPR and its drawbacks, in a talk intended for non-scientists. They will discuss the future of this therapy in such genetic diseases as sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and other genetic diseases.

ACE Lecture Day will be moderated by Audrey Lynn, Project Manager, Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences, CWRU.

In compliance with CWRU policy, masks are required inside during this program other than while eating. Please note that these guidelines are subject to change as public health conditions and CWRU policies evolve.

This course will introduce readers to the major themes of The Decameron, set against the historical backdrop of the 1348 plague. Set in Florence, Italy during the Black Death, Giovanni Boccaccio’s one hundred novelle have received recent, widespread attention as readers the world over struggle to navigate the perils of the COVID 19 pandemic. As we will explore, it is not the pathos of Boccaccio’s plague that gives The Decameron its enduring and vital power. Rather, the stories reveal the passion and compassion of which we are capable when called upon to care about and for each other. More

The choice of the "Guardians" as the new name of the Cleveland baseball team has focused great attention on the city and the Hope Memorial Bridge. Yet, that action, in many ways, opens larger questions. For example, how have bridges literally and figuratively spanned "divides" in our community? East Side to West Side is one example. Where have bridges been closed or purposely damaged in order to perpetuate divides? And of course, the new name of the team itself attempts to heal a divide. This presentation will examine the history of bridges and their impact on Cleveland and also look at the names that have been selected to identify not only our sports teams, but our community over time -- each arguably a creation of its own time, and each often presumed to be fixed and permanent.

This lecture presents a case study using the One-Step Webpages as well as other websites to develop a family history. It illustrates how, with a minimal amount of initial information, an entire genealogy can be obtained. It also shows how to obtain records in spite of name misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information. Please Note: This program will not be recorded for future viewing at the request of the speaker. These lectures are offered in partnership with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Cleveland. More

When the State of Israel was established in 1948, its founders envisioned a democratic, pluralistic society that would develop “for the benefit of all its inhabitants.” Yet, as with many visions, there is always a gap between the dream and reality. This course reviews the various visions that have shaped Israel’s socioeconomic, religious and political reality, as well as the ongoing debate over the visions that conflict with one another. More

When Pulitzer-Prize winning author Donna Tartt published her first novel, The Secret History, in 1992, it was the subject of both hype and acclaim, breaking records both in the advance Tartt received for it as well as the number of copies in its first run. In the thirty years since its publication, it continues to be a widely-read and discussed “why-done-it?” detective novel. In this course, we will read, discuss, and analyze the novel along with its influences and literary allusions. Read: The Secret History, Donna Tartt More
