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

An obsessive genealogist and descendent of one of the most prominent Jewish families since the American Revolution, Blanche Moses firmly believed her maternal ancestors were Sephardic grandees. Yet she found herself at a dead end when it came to her grandmother’s maternal line. Professor Leibman will overturn the reclusive heiress’s assumptions about her family history to reveal that her grandmother and great-uncle, Sarah and Isaac Brandon, actually began their lives as poor, Christian, and enslaved in Barbados. Leibman traces the siblings’ extraordinary journey around the Atlantic world, using artifacts they left behind in Barbados, Suriname, London, Philadelphia, and, finally, New York. While their affluence made them unusual, their story mirrors that of the largely forgotten people of mixed African and Jewish ancestry that constituted as much as ten percent of the Jewish communities in which the siblings lived.

We will explore the history and literature of the philosophy and counterculture 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. Our survey will include the movement’s origins in German idealism and subsequent development in New England through the activism of the Transcendental Club. We will acquaint ourselves with the Club’s sponsorship of the literary journal The Dial (1840–44) and experiment in communal living at Brook Farm, Massachusetts. The movement's affirmation of subjectivity, intuition, and nature, along with its critiques of sexual inequality and slavery, will also be covered. Readings provided through Internet resources in the public domain. 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.

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.

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

Nothing is more basic than food to all of our daily lives, and therefore to our cultures, our social interactions, and our very identities. This has been true throughout history. Food is inextricably interconnected with the development of agriculture and other technologies, with the rise and fall of empires, with increasing understanding of diet and nutrition, with laws and regulations, with the arts, with economic development and consumer culture, and with religious and ethnic identities. By selective examination of representative episodes pertaining to each of these topics, this course explores the history of food, from the neolithic agricultural revolution to the consumer revolution of the last generation. In this way, we seek to understand more fully food, history, and food in history.
