One hundred years ago the tomb of Tutankhamun was uncovered in Luxor, Egypt. This discovery revolutionized archaeology, catapulted Howard Carter onto the world stage, and shed light on a minimally understood period of ancient Egyptian history. We will explore these stories, among others, through an analysis of some of the “wonderful things” found in Tut’s tomb. More

We will explore the history and literature of American Transcendentalism (c. 1830-1860) in a selection of readings by Amos Bronson Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Henry David Thoreau, and Walt Whitman. The movement’s origins in German idealism and subsequent development in New England through the activism of the Transcendental Club shall be considered. The Club’s sponsorship of the literary journal The Dial (1840–44) and experiment in communal living at Brook Farm, Massachusetts, will also be examined. We will recognize the counterculture of the movement in its promotion of non-traditional sources of authority, such as subjectivity, intuition, and nature. The movement’s critiques of sexual inequality and slavery will also be discussed. More

This course, with an initial look into key figures of the 1950s, will cover a sampling of movements during this prosperous decade of the 1960s as well as contempor- aneous European responses. In addition, a biographical approach to the works of Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol will provide important insights into their works. The 1960s is one of the most fascinating decades in art history of the last century: some artists focus on news events with photographs of key moments, some on purified reductive forms in elegant metals, while others long for the untouched lands of the West by the use of actual earth in their vast projects.

Every museum collection has a story to tell. This course offers a critical look at how benefactors have helped shape the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Using the CMA’s expansive holdings as a model, audiences will gain an understanding of how art museum collections are built, and how collecting patterns and priorities have changed over time. This course will also include a session on The Keithley Collection, an exhibition that celebrates the extraordinary gift of 100 Impressionist and Modernist works of art to the museum by Clevelanders Joseph P. and Nancy F. Keithley to the Cleveland Museum of Art – the most significant gift since the bequest of Leonard C. Hanna Jr. in 1958. More

Charles Waddell Chesnutt (1858-1932) and Langston Hughes (1901-1967) are two of the most celebrated African American writers in the history of American literature and both called Cleveland their home. The 2021-2022 Cleveland Arts Prize “Past Masters” series, commemorating its 60th anniversary, announced that both were among the 60 honorees and the title for this summer’s 2022 Front International Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art – “Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows” - also takes its inspiration from the words of Langston Hughes. This lecture series will focus on materials that were written by and about Hughes and the lesser known Chesnutt, and the vast influence of their literary art in both the racialized America of their lifetimes and in the 21st century.

Ever since the dawn of existence there has been conflict, violence and warfare. And for just as long, there has been the need for care, nurturing and humanitarianism. Two modern examples who demonstrate these traits in the 19th century are Henri Dunant and Clara Barton with their connection to the laws of war, the Geneva Conventions and the founding of the Red Cross.

With the rise in antisemitism nationwide, exploring the
world’s oldest hatred is more relevant and important than
ever before. This course will explore the past, present, and

question how social media, Israel, and more impact how
antisemitism shapes Jewish life today. Throughout, we will

In this course, we will consider what it might mean to bring a contemporary lens to the work of 19th and 20th century American authors William Faulkner, Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, Mark Twain and Flannery O’Connor. Brilliant and timeless though their work may be, they were also fully human and products of their time and place. How might these texts reveal themselves anew when we bring our contemporary - and often polarized - sensibilities to bear on them? More

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.



Read: The Complete Greek Tragedies, 3rd Ed., Mark Griffith

and Glenn W. Most (Iphigenia in Aulis, Rhesus, The Trojan

Women, Hecuba, Electra, Orestes, Cyclops)

Film Noir, which emerged as a cinematic style in the
1940s, first came to life on the pages of the “hardboiled”
writers of the previous decade. One of them was James
M. Cain. Two of his novels, The Postman Always Rings
Twice
and Double Indemnity, were adapted for the screen
in the mid-1940s and provide textbook examples of the
genre. But what is Film Noir? We will see some fascinating
film clips from experts, but we will come to our own
conclusions after we read and discuss each literary
work, followed by a screening and discussion of the
film adaptations.

Read: The Postman Always Rings Twice and Double
Indemnity
, James M. Cain
