"The Clue to Everything:" A History of Sicily
  • Saturday, Mar 7, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM

    Register Here

    Sicily is the most magical, mythic, monster-plagued, and mistreated place in the Mediterranean, and mother of some of the foundation stories of Western Civilization.  In following a chronology of her three thousand years, we’ll meet heroes from Ulysses, Æneas, and Archimedes to Giovanni Falcone, and monsters from Cyclops to mafiosi from Corleone. We’ll examine how Sicily became the wellspring of Western Civilization under Greeks; was trampled down by Romans and Byzantines; became the glory of Europe again under Arabs and Normans, igniting the Renaissance; and was then left to rot by the Spanish. We’ll conclude with the arrival of Garibaldi in the west, Patton in the south, and Francis Ford Coppola in the east (not all at the same time). Sicily is an unexpectedly subtle, fascinating, and wounded place that is central to our Western story. 

    Instructor: Douglas Kenning, a popular instructor for lifelong learning programs, received a PhD from the University of  Edinburgh, Scotland, and has lived as a university assistant professor in Tunisia, Japan, Italy, and the USA.  He has been a biologist, actor, army officer, Manhattan taxi driver, academic administrator, and writer of books, articles, and stage plays.  He lives half the year in the Bay Area, giving lectures on subjects related to Mediterranean histories and cultures, and half the year in Siracusa, Sicily, where he runs a non-profit, Sicily Tour, giving tours and arranging cultural exchanges.  He says the speed of this history is 799.25 years per hour!

11th Annual CEP and Silicon Valley NASPP Symposium
  • Wednesday, Mar 25, 2015 from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

    The Annual CEP Symposium and the Silicon Valley NASPP All Day - two great events that were just meant to go together.  Be part of the Best One Day Event in Equity Compensation. This one day event will take place on March 24, 2015 at Santa Clara University. Are you REGISTERED?

    The agenda was difficult to select, with so many wonderful proposals submitted, and only 15 available session slots.  We think you will agree however, that the final selections will provide opportunities to all attendees to choose from presentations that will educate, inform, and inspire.  New this year is our Introductory Track, featuring sessions geared toward those new to the world of equity compensation.  This Introductory Track includes a presentation option at each of the break out session times as follows:

    Breakout Session 1 - Cliff Notes on Equity Compensation

    Breakout Session 2 - The Real World: Mobility

    Breakout Session 3 - The Basics Behind the Beans: An Intro to Equity Comp Tax and Accounting

    The Introductory Track was designed with the new Equity Compensation Professional in mind, though all sessions are open to all attendees.  Find out more about these sessions, and all of the sessions on our agenda.

    Don’t forget to take time during the day to stop by and visit with our wonderful sponsors.  In the Partner Pavilion, you will find representatives from Bank of America, Charles Schwab, E*TRADE, Fidelity, Morgan Stanley, Solium, and UBS.  At the Exhibitor Area, you may chat with members of Baker & McKenzie, Certent, Computershare, Equity Methods, Equilar, Radford, SOS and TD Ameritrade.  Additionally, Deloitte, Global Shares, Group 5, and PwC are supporting this year’s Symposium.  You will also likely see some familiar faces at the GEO, NASPP, and NCEO tables.  Mark your calendars now for March 24th and be sure to stop by and visit with all of our wonderful Sponsors.

    Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please contact the CEPI at 408-554-2187 or cepi@scu.edu for more information.

A Meander Through Modern Physics

    We've come a long way from thinking that the earth is at the center of the universe; we now know that the physical world is very different from what it appears to be to our senses. In this course, we will examine some of the key paradigms and discoveries of modern Physics that form our current model of the Universe and which push the limits of our ability to understand it.  Some of the topics we'll consider include: Newtonian dynamics; thermodynamics; quantum mechanics; relativity; and cosmology.  We'll see how these tie together to form our current model of the physical world, and we'll use them to explore what is known about the origin and beginning of the Universe (Big Bang) and how the Universe is evolving.  We'll also look at some of the big questions that physicists are working on today. 
    There are no prerequisites for the course other than a curiosity about the world around you.  We will take a purely qualitative approach.  No math background is required, although some technical aptitude might be helpful.  In lieu of that, however, just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to chew on some bizarre new ideas and concepts.

    Dr. John Trudeau has been teaching in corporate and academic settings for over thirty years and has been recognized for his ability to make complex technical subjects easily understandable.  He holds graduate degrees in both Physics and Psychology, in pursuit of his personal lifetime goal to understand "how the world works."  In the course of his career in Silicon Valley, Dr. Trudeau has worked at Hewlett-Packard, Apple Computer, Cisco Systems and several start-up companies.  He was also Director of the Engineering and Technology, and Business and Management programs at the Silicon Valley Extension Campus of UC Santa Cruz. John has done research on molecular electron quantum states, precision physical measurements, and more recently on functional brain imaging as a diagnostic tool for Attention Deficit Disorder and other psychiatric conditions.  His other interests over the years have included hiking, windsurfing, sailing, fishing, woodworking, Bonsai, and building astronomical telescopes.

    An in-depth introduction to the first Modernist novel in the English language. This class will examine James Joyce’s coming-of-age tale of a boy growing into Irish Catholic manhood, and struggling with questions of faith, family, and identity. It’s a drama of Irish politics and religion, and parallels the author’s own personal development. We’ll explore his use of stream-of-consciousness, motif, point-of-view, epiphany, and allegory in the novel, and pay particular attention to the masterful language Joyce uses.
     
    James Harville recently retired after forty-five years of teaching Advanced Placement and Honors English at Bellarmine College Preparatory.  In thirty of those years, he taught a senior elective called the “James Joyce Seminar,” in which 12th grade students read A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, some of the stories in Dubliners, and tackled the challenge of Ulysses. It has been said that spending 30 semesters reading Joyce with gifted high school students has changed some lives.  Especially Mr. Harville’s.

    This course examines interest groups in American politics.  Historically viewed as private organizations dedicated to expressing the views of their members to policy makers, interest groups have exploded in numbers and types.  Their growing clout has impacted other traditional sources of informal power, particularly political parties, which have lost considerable control of nominations and elections.  We will trace the conditions that have facilitated interest group proliferation, the targets of interest groups, their techniques, and the outcomes of their efforts.  We will do so bearing in mind the original structure of American government and the intent of the Framers, taking note of the changing relationship between informal pressure and formal political structures.  With all of these developments, we are left with the questions: Do 21st century political organizations benefit the fabric of American democracy or thwart it?  Have they supplanted the roles of partisan organization in the political process or simply provided additional sets of messages to public policy makers?  Answering these fundamental questions will tell us much about American politics today, as well as the country’s future.

Beautiful Gardens: Optional Field Trip
  • Saturday, Mar 21, 2015 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

    Register Here 

    What makes gardens beautiful and memorable?  We'll begin by examining features such as fountains and hedges that help create a harmonious design.  We'll look at European and American gardens from the Renaissance up to today, both iconic examples and some less familiar, illustrated with historic views (prints, drawings, paintings, sculpture and photographs), as well as contemporary images.
    Our tour begins in Italy at Medici gardens in and outside of Florence, created in the late 16th century, then in Rome and its environs, including Villa d'Este at Tivoli, of grander, more ambitious designs.  A century later, we move to France to survey the brilliant landscapes created by André Le Nôtre for Louis XIV's many royal residences.  By the 18th century, innovative ideas in England open gardens to the surrounding landscape.  The 19th century witnessed the rise of smaller, domestic gardens and the emergence of urban parks.  By the end of that century, the new profession of landscape designer arose.  By the early 20th century, with ever-increasing ease of travel, wealthy Americans adapted iconic European gardens in such examples as Filoli and Villa Montalvo. 

    Recent garden designs have begun to address such issues as health, sustainability, and drought, through an expanded palette of plants.  Among the byways we will look at are sculpture gardens.  Art and gardens form a rich companionship.    

    Instructor: Betsy G. Fryberger was the McMurtry Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University, until her retirement in 2009 after some forty years at the museum. Among her favorite projects and publications was the 2003 exhibition catalogue The Changing Garden: Four Centuries of European and American Art, chosen by both the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times as one of the best books about gardens published that year.  This is Betsy’s first Osher course.

     WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

    Successful recovery from any addiction involves a transformation of the entire person. At times the psychological community, recovery community, and treatment community are at odds over how to best address the needs of addicts and alcoholics. This course aims at offering an overview of the most effective treatments available to allow a person the opportunity to experience real peace of mind in recovery and freedom from the addictive prison. Included in the course is understanding the strength and shadow side of the current approaches to addressing the disease of addiction. The course will include personal stories of the teachers, guest speakers, along with real – in the trenches shared experiences from working in a treatment facility that now treats 500 alcoholics and addicts each year. Also discussed in this course is the power of self-compassion and positive psychology and its vital role in allowing for complete recovery, in body, mind and spirit, from any addiction. There will also be very many down to earth – hands on – practical skill building opportunities for people seeking concrete ways to help foster positive change for alcoholics and addicts they may work with.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    - Understand the most effective treatments in body, mind, and spirit for
      alcoholics and addicts
    - How to implement the most effective treatments as a therapist (see above for
      all topics that will be covered)
    - Informal question and answer periods will guide assessment to assure students
      are tracking with the material presented.
    - The opportunity to actually do some of the assignments typically given to
       patients in a treatment setting to taste the transformative power recovery can
       have for individuals trying to get clean and sober.
     

    TARGET AUDIENCE
    Anyone currently in graduate school training in the helping professions, or licensed therapists and social workers or interns seeking to understand what really works for helping alcoholics and addicts get and maintain, long-term contented sobriety.

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

    In this workshop, we propose an 8-step model for how to effectively engage in Courageous Conversations about culture and diversity. Our approach provides practical and enriching tools that further the concept of broaching cultural issues (Day-Vines, et al., 2007) in clinical settings, supervisory relationships, the classroom, and organizations. As well, these are skills that also require engagement at the community level. We also facilitate experiential small group exercises that cultivate the essential skills that ultimately help us engage, connect, and build lasting relationships necessary for intimate and genuine dialogue regarding culture.

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
     
    As the population grays, we will see more and more people in the 60 plus age group. Is there anything unique about this population? Are there problems and issues specific to aging that are within the expertise of the counselor?
     
    Aging can be considered a continuum. On one end are the seriously distressed. Here clients may be concerned about memory gaps, disorientation, and general loss of function. This may include those who are dementing, depressed, or severely anxious. The counselor needs to be aware of the signs and symptoms of these disorders as well as the treatment opportunities.
     
    On the other end of the continuum are those who have been consciously successful at aging. Here are people who seem to be alive and present. They enjoy all aspects of their lives and continue to grow and make new memories. What are the values, attitudes, and behaviors that contribute to this? These qualities are teachable and the counseling format may be the most appropriate context to teach them.
     
     
     
    INSTRUCTOR BIO

    Dr. Hayes has had a dual career as a therapist and u teacher since 1966. After Spending three years working in State hospitals and five and one half years working for Santa Clara County Mental Health, he began his private practice. He continues his practice in Saratoga, working with individuals, couples and seniors.
     
    He has taught at a number of colleges and universities including San Jose State and, for thirty five years, at Santa Clara University. Even though he taught courses in Psychopathology and Clinical Assessment, his main interest has been Health Psychology.
     
    He spent twenty five years focusing on chronic illness and worked closely with the Multiple Sclerosis Society. He was able to bring this interest to Santa Clara University by starting the Master’s program in Health Psychology. From there it was an easy transition to his interest in Aging as a component of Health Psychology.
     
    For ten years now Dr. Hayes has led courses on Aging for the Center for Professional Development as well as giving talks and seminars at various hospitals in the area.
     
    From his beginnings as a Health Psychologist, Dr. Hayes has been interested in how individuals form the experience of themselves. Bodies evolve and change. Aging certainly involves physical and psychological change. Yet individuals continue to create and maintain an identity, often transforming these changes into consciousness and growth.

    This course is an introduction to ancient Greece presented as a journey to five different cities.  We begin with Mycenae, where we examine the ruins of the late Bronze Age and investigate the culture that inspired the Homeric epic poems.  Next stop is Delphi, home of Apollo's oracle, where we explore Greek religion.  Our third stop is Sparta, and an overview of what made the Spartans so memorably different from their fellow Greeks.  The fourth stop takes us to the jewel of the ancient Greek world:  5th century Athens.  We end our journey in Egyptian Alexandria, which preserved the legacy of classical Greece as it created its own identity as the new cosmopolitan center of the Greek world in the wake of Alexander the Great.

Fourth Annual Supply Chain Management Directors' Conference
  • Wednesday, Mar 4, 2015 at 8:00 AM to Friday, Mar 6, 2015 at 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

    SCU will be hosting the Fourth Annual Supply Chain Management Directors’ Conference on campus from March 4-6, 2015.  The intent of this conference is to help program directors, assistant/associate deans and center managers in developing, enhancing and managing various aspects of their supply chain programs and curriculum. Given the broader trend towards greater specialization in graduate business programs and the growing interest in supply chain management, the discussions during the conference would certainly generate food for thought even for participants not directly involved in such roles. It will also be an excellent opportunity to network with fellow academics and with executives from prominent technology companies. We have a great lineup of speakers from industry who will talk about the latest industry trends in Supply Chain Management and speakers from academia who will discuss the implications of these trends on program management, curriculum design and other related topics.

    Registration is FREE. If you are planning to attend a session or an event, I encourage you to register even though you might be associated with SCU. It would greatly help with our planning. Details related to the registration are available on the conference website. The link to the website is given below:

From the Supreme Court to Legislated Death: Current U.S. Legal Issues Series
  • Wednesday, Mar 11, 2015 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

    Register Here

    Based on their individual expertise, a different Santa Clara Law School faculty member will teach each of the five classes on major legal issues.  Leading off will be Professor Margaret Russell who will address the United States Supreme Court.  She will profile the nine justices, explain the implications of recent decisions, and identify major pending cases.  The second class will analyze immigration laws.  Professor Lynette Parker will address existing laws and the evolving emphasis on legal and illegal immigration.  The third class by Ellen Kreitzberg will examine the death penalty and whether California has witnessed its last execution.  Former Law School Dean Jerry Uelmen will teach the fourth class with a focus on whether current laws that address illegal drugs really make sense.  The final of the five classes will deal with legislating death.  Professor Michelle Oberman will provide a perspective on this sobering, but increasingly important topic.   

    Instructor: Jack Callon, a member of the OLLI@SCU Curriculum Committee, will serve as moderator for this five part series.

    Margaret Russell (February 11) has been a member of the School of Law faculty since 1990.  Prior to joining the SCU faculty, she was a fellow at the public interest law firm Public Advocates, Inc. in San Francisco.  Her undergraduate degree was from Princeton in 1979, and her law degree from Stanford in 1984.
    Lynette Parker (February 18) has been teaching and supervising law students handling immigration cases at the Katharine and George Alexander Community Law Center since 2000.  Prior to coming to Santa Clara, she worked as a staff attorney at the International Institute of the East Bay for 10 years.

Japanese Woodblock Prints: The Floating World

    Location: O'Connor Hall, Room 207 (New Room)

    Woodblock prints are perhaps the best-known examples of Japanese visual art in the West, as they were a key source of inspiration for many European Impressionist painters in the mid-nineteenth century. Characterized by their vivid colors and lively designs, these prints first emerged within the thriving culture of Edo Period Japan (1615-1868).  Known as ukiyo-e or “pictures of the floating world,” they initially depicted the fleeting pleasures of urban entertainment such as Kabuki and beautiful women, but later expanded to include a range of themes.  This course provides an overview of the genre, surveying traditional print subjects and tracing the development of the medium through the 19th century.  Topics will include courtesan prints, theater prints, landscapes, and warrior imagery.
     
    The Asian Art Museum in San Francisco will be hosting an exhibition, “Seduction: Japan’s Floating World,” from February 20 – May 10, 2015; this course is designed to complement that offering.
     
    Karen M. Fraser is an Assistant Professor in SCU’s Department of Art and Art History. Her research focuses on modern Japanese visual culture (particularly photography), women in Japanese visual culture, and cross-cultural interactions and influences between Asia and the West.  She attended the University of Miami as an undergraduate and received her Ph.D. from Stanford University in Art History.  This will be Karen’s first class for SCU Osher.

    Junípero Serra, the first president of the California missions, is one of the most controversial figures in the history of early California and the American Southwest. Many of the writings about him have expressed one of two polar perspectives, portraying him as either a selfless man of God or an oppressive exploiter of California's native peoples. This class introduces Serra to a twenty-first century audience in a different way. We attempt to approach Serra as he approached himself, as an eighteenth-century Roman Catholic priest. We will emphasize two aspects of Serra's internal vision. First, we will elucidate the ways in which he understood his own vocation as a Franciscan missionary in the New World. Second, we will emphasize the relationships he developed with the native peoples of the New World we sought to evangelize in Mexico and in California. In this way, we hope that participants will come to both a deeper understanding of this individual man and also gain new insights into the ways in which controversial parts of our own history can be interpreted.

Men, Women and Travel: Tourism in Europe Since the Renaissance
  • Friday, Mar 6, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM

    Register Here

    This course offers an overview of the nature of tourism and its practice, from antiquity to the present, emphasizing the period from the middle of the 17th century, with the development of the terms “tourism,” “picturesque,” and “romantic.”  A focus will be on similarities and differences in the experiences of man and women travelers through the many changes into the 21th century, when women travel in ever larger numbers and, for the first time, apply for more American passports than men do.

    Instructor: Bert Gordon, a professor of history at Mills College, is a specialist in World War II France.  His books focus on French collaboration with Nazi Germany during the war.  As a part of his research, he interviewed dozens of French participants, including volunteers with the German Waffen-SS and high-ranking members of the Vichy government.  He has also written about popular foods, notably the history of the hamburger, as well as chapters on chocolate history in England, France, California, and China in Chocolate: History, Culture, and Heritage (New York: John Wiley, 2009). Tourism throughout history is another area in which Bert has done extensive research.  He is currently writing a book on France and wartime tourism.  Bert is one of OLLI’s most popular instructors.

    Written science fiction has changed much since the days of the pulp magazines, when silver rocket ships and bubble-helmeted astronauts stood boldly on alien landscapes.  From its early focus on manifest  
    destiny in space, the field has grown to embrace feminism, libertarianism, and myriad other “isms.”  It can be a funhouse mirror held up to the present or a warning of dangers yet to come.  It explores imaginary cultures and wrestles with alien philosophies.  In this course, we'll read Asimov, Clarke, and newer writers.  We'll explore strange new sub-genres from cyberpunk to the Mundane movement to new space opera.

    Cliff Winnig works as an engineer and as a science fiction (and fantasy) writer.  His stories have appeared in a number of anthologies and elsewhere.  He has taught subjects as diverse as software, music, and karate; and he has appeared on numerous panels discussing various aspects of science fiction.  He holds a master’s degree in music and has been known to play the sitar.

    Shakespeare’s sonnets are frequently neglected in the veneration paid to his dramatic achievement. Yet the sonnets provide important insights into the plays themselves, especially those plays we shall be discussing during Spring 2015. Our first session will provide a general introduction to Shakespeare’s sonnets, followed by a close examination of specific sonnets that explicate his views on love and lust (yes, he differentiates!).
    Subsequent classes will feature the three Shakespearean dramas being performed at the 2015 Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) <http://www.osfashland.org/>: Much Ado About Nothing, Antony and Cleopatra, and Pericles. Even if you have no plans to attend the Festival, these plays provide an excellent introduction to Shakespeare’s genius: a comedy, a tragedy, and a romance.
    You can choose your level of study. Some students just come and listen. Others watch the plays at home on DVD before or after class discussions (joining with other classmates for a rousing Shakespeare party!). Some read the plays in depth and ask the professor obscure, difficult, and fascinating questions. Copies of the sonnets and plays are available at all public libraries and bookstores. FREE texts are available on-line.

We’ll talk about common problems, read the research on aging, shatter the myths of old age (physical, mental, social, and legal), and gain new insights that will help us make aging- related decisions. We’ll share our experiences, ask questions, discuss, and learn from the members of the group.

    The goal is to create a community where we can talk openly and help each other. 
     
    Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, March 18 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM in Loyola Hall 160.
      
    Contact Monica David monica.david123@gmail.com  if you are interested in joining this group.

    Cheers.

    Editorial Reviews
    Review
    “Ravi Howard tells a thoroughly convincing story about the singing star Nat King Cole’s best friend…. [A] warmly enveloping book…. Appealing.” (Janet Maslin, New York Times)

    “A moving tale about bigotry and the power of friendship.” (People)

    “Excellent…moving….Weary is a marvelous character…. Readers who appreciate beautifully written, compelling novels with great depth and humanity will be more than pleased.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

    “ Heartbreaking…. A bold reimagining of [the] civil rights era…. Howard’s choices…are daring.” (Los Angeles Times)

    “By following Howard’s characters, we are allowed a sidelong but penetrating glimpse into one of the most important events in American history…. Howard bends history…proving that the past can be best felt through refracted light rather than under the harsh glare of historical fact.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

    “In an easygoing style, with Weary as his guide, Howard pokes into under-viewed corners of the fight while never losing sight of the humanity of both the cause and its effects.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

    “Howard brings readers back in time to postwar Alabama, in this velvety smooth fictional memoir. . . . [His] prose goes down like the top-shelf whiskey that Weary favors, making for a heady reading experience.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

    “Through unfussy language and well-formed characters...gifted novelist Howard...takes readers of all races, ages and classes into the world of pre-civil rights era black people, offering insight on and understanding of one of our country’s most tumultuous periods.” (BookPage)

    “Alternating between the cities and Weary’s past and present, Howard explores race relations in the pre-civil rights era and the strong ties forged between two extraordinary men.” (Booklist)

    “Powerful…. A personal, poignant portrayal of how the lives of African Americans could be so easily derailed by racial inequality.” (Library Journal (starred review)

    Hello Mystery Book Club Fans,

     
    We meet next on Thursday, March 19th in the Benson Center Parlor A at 11 am to Noon.  Cover Her Face by P.D. James is the next book for the month and discussion in March.  
     
    For new members, welcome.  We decide by consensus on the books to be read with suggestions from those at the prior month's meeting.  The time is the same on Thursdays, but due to the meeting room, may change from the 3rd or 4th Thursday of the month.  An email and reminder precedes the book and date to meet.
     
    Susan
     
    • Cover Her Face by P.D. James (Thurs, Mar. 19th)
    The first in the series of scintillating mysteries to feature cunning Scotland Yard detective, Adam Dalgliesh from P.D. James, the bestselling author hailed by People magazine as “the greatest living mystery writer.”
    Sally Jupp was a sly and sensuous young woman who used her body and her brains to make her way up the social ladder. Now she lies across her bed with dark bruises from a strangler’s fingers forever marring her lily-white throat. Someone has decided that the wages of sin should be death...and it is up to Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh to find who that someone is.
    Cover Her Face is P.D. James’ delightful debut novel, an ingeniously plotted mystery that immediately placed her among the masters of suspense.

    The course is designed to impart essential knowledge of the neuroscience of sleep  and will cover how sleep affects our daily lives -- both physical and mental functions of our well being.  The course will cover the science of sleep, dreams, and the pathophysiology of highly prevalent sleep disorders such as sleep deprivation, biological rhythms, and focuses on the physiology of non-REM and REM sleep. Knowledge learned should empower the student to make educated decisions concerning sleep and alertness for the rest of his or her life. An equally important goal is to shape students’ attitudes about the importance of sleep. Learning about the science of sleep will provide tangible reason to respect sleep as a member of what we term the triumvirate of health: good nutrition, physical fitness, and healthy sleep. 

    Dr. William C Dement is Chief Emeritus of the Division of Sleep at Stanford University School of Medicine, which is also the home of the world’s first sleep disorders center he founded.  In 1975, Dr. Dement established the American Academy of Sleep Medicine serving as its first President for twelve years.  Dr. Dement was also a founder of the American Board of Sleep Medicine.  From 1990-1993, he served as Chairman of the U.S. Congress’ National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research.  In 2001, he received the largest National Institute of Health research grant in sleep medicine history.   As the author or co-author of over 500 scientific publications he is now completing his 43rd year of teaching one of the largest and most popular classes on the Stanford campus, “Sleep and Dreams.”

    In 1917, the Bolsheviks seized power in Russia promising to construct a grand new world that would erase the injustices of both Tsarist Russia and the capitalist West.  However, within a decade, Joseph Stalin was firmly at the helm of this ever more violent experiment.  In this class, we'll study Stalin's rise, his methods, and the system that bears his name.  Was Stalin's terror a byproduct of Marxist ideology?  Is the Soviet victory in World War II proof of the achievements of Stalinism, despite its costs?    How did Stalinism shape the lives of millions--whether in Moscow, far off republics, or the Gulag?  These are some of questions we'll explore, paying particular attention to historical debates and recent revelations about Stalin and Stalinism.

    Francis Ford Coppola’s Godfather Trilogy is recognized as one of the greatest American film series of all time.  It is a work about “the American Dream” as profound as any art in our nation’s history.  This course will invite you to re-watch the entire trilogy in class (1/2 of each film per class) and then spend time in discussion of its style, themes, and methods. Emphasis will be placed on the work’s place in film history; its film structure and artistry; the back story to its making; and its particular reflections on the immigrant experience, Italian culture, and crime history.
            
    It is recommended (though not required) that Mario Puzo’s original Godfather novel be read before the class. If you have never seen the trilogy, have seen all three movies once, watched only one of the three or loved the entire trilogy many times, this class is for you.

The Society of Jesus Today: The View from Rome and from Africa; A Presentation by Fr. Joseph Daoust, S.J. & Fr. Augustin Karekezi, S.J.
  • Tuesday, Mar 17, 2015 at 7:00 PM
    Two hundred years now after the Restoration of the Society of Jesus in 1814, it is valuable to take stock and assess the strength and vitality of the world’s largest religious congregation for men. What is the state of the Society of Jesus today? What are the chief resources it possesses and concerns it faces?
     
    This spring JST is fortunate to be hosting two knowledgeable and influential Jesuits who have just completed many years of service in top administrative posts abroad.
     
    Father Joseph Daoust, S.J., a former President of JST, just completed a six-year term as general counselor and delegate for the General Curia and International Roman Houses of the Society. He brings great insight about this “center” of Jesuit works and administration, especially as we approach General Congregation 36 to be convened in 2016. 
     
    Father Augustin Karekezi, S.J. has served even longer as the major superior of the Rwanda-Burundi Region of the Society of Jesus, as well as diverse previous service in formation in East Africa. He offers insights into a region that has traditionally been at the “periphery” of ecclesiastical focus, but which has taken on new importance with the growth of the church in sub-Saharan Africa, not to mention hundreds of Jesuit vocations.
     
    After our two distinguished speakers offer their reflections, ample time will be set aside for questions from the audience about the Jesuits today and the state of the international Society. Please join us!

The War in the Pacific: The U.S. Versus Japan
  • Tuesday, Mar 10, 2015 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

    Register Here

    On December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked the American fleet at Pearl Harbor, initiating some three and half years of brutal warfare in the Pacific.  This course will examine why the Japanese made the fateful decision to challenge a far richer and much more powerful nation.  It will also cover the course of the war, which began with a series of spectacular Japanese successes, but soon brought a series of naval and military disasters, capped by the dropping of the first atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945.  

    Instructor: E. Bruce Reynolds, Professor of History at San Jose State University, has taught East Asian history and the history of World War II for many years.  He is the author of Thailand and Japan's Southern Advance, 1940-1945 and Thailand's Secret War: OSS, SOE, and the Free Thai Underground during World War II.  He also edited and contributed to Japan in the Fascist Era.  He has also become a very popular Osher instructor.
