"GENTLEMAN JACK": MISS ANNE LISTER OF SHIBDEN HALL, HALIFAX

Joan Burda, Adjunct Professor, Law, CWRU
Wednesdays, February 2 - March 2 1:30 - 3 p.m. ET

Anne Lister was a 19th century English landowner who

is considered the first modern lesbian. She kept a journal

for most of her life and detailed her daily activities, travels,

and local gossip. Approximately 20% of the journal entries

are in code, developed by Anne Lister, and used by her to

discuss her relationships with women. Her journals

comprise almost 5 million words and are found in 26

volumes, plus another 16+ travel journals. The journals

were added to the UNESCO Memory of the World

Programme in 2011. The register citation notes the

journals “comprehensive and painfully honest account of

lesbian life and reflections on her nature, however, which

have made these diaries unique. They have shaped and

continue to shape the direction of UK Gender Studies and

Women’s History.” Her story became better known after

the BBC/HBO series, “Gentleman Jack” came out in 2019.

Jews prepare for their New Year by engaging in teshuvah, a word that is usually translated as "repentance" and literally means "return." But the ideal of teshuvah also contains possibilities beyond individual penitence. Jewish thinkers have interpreted this concept to speak of many kinds of turnings and returnings - to tradition, to home, or to a whole self. In this class, we will read a variety of modern Jewish thinkers who bring teshuvah beyond the walls of the synagogue to speak to the spiritual and ethical challenges of modern life. More

The arts can be a powerful forum for confronting moral issues. In the 19th century, Russian composers, working within a repressive regime, incorporated Russian folk material and liturgical chant to create a colorful repertoire of Eastern European opera. Two of the greatest stars of the Bolshoi Opera, between the 1930's and the postwar period, were Ukrainian artists: the Jewish bass Mark Reizen, and the tenor, Ivan Kozlovksy, who was prevented from foreign tours by his admirer, Stalin. This class will examine their historic film performances in Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov, a study in guilt, along with great opera by Tchaikovsky, and others.

The mythology of the Trojan War provided a major

inspiration for all of the Attic tragedians. Euripides,

however, understood the Trojan War not only as a

showcase of Olympian intervention and heroic prowess but

as the opportunity to explore and reevaluate traditional

views of gods and heroes in light of the intellectual and

cultural revolution in the second half of the fifth century.

This course will read some of Euripides’s Trojan cycle plays

and examine how Euripides envisioned the Trojan War and

its aftermath.
