Take some of the mystery out of a walk in the woods by developing your skills at landscape analysis. Landscape is much more than scenery to be observed or even terrain to be traveled. Etched into the land is the history of how we have inhabited it, the storms and fires that have shaped it, and its response to these and other changes. In this course you will learn how to decipher the evidence etched into our forested landscape to unravel its complex stories. You will be given tools and techniques for deciphering the language of the woods in an entertaining and easy-to-read package. This course is a must for anyone who owns land, enjoys hiking, or wants to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of our woodlands. This is a field trip-based class. All trips are within 20 minutes of Burlington, and transportation to sites is on your own. Participants should be able to walk one mile over the duration of each class.

Is Vladimir Putin Trumping the U.S.?  The Current State of Russian/American Relations

Register NowMeeting Date: Wednesday, October 11
Meeting Time: 5:30-7pm
Instructor: Kevin McKenna
Location: UVM Alumni House, 61 Summit St., Burlington
Member: $15  Non-Member: $30

Since the November 2016 U.S. presidential election, many Americans have been preoccupied with the possibility that Russian hackers affected the outcome of ballots cast for Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton.  Contrary to these claims that this action affected Donald Trump’s victory, it appears highly unlikely that Russian hackers succeeded in doing so.  On the other hand, there can be no doubt that Russian tampering in the U.S. elections took place.  The purpose of this OLLI lecture is to provide a necessary context to understand the Putin government’s interference not only in the U.S. presidential elections but, since 2012, in the electoral process throughout Eastern and Western Europe.  As this presentation will suggest, Putin has long been keen on impugning the democratic electoral process in the West, and the 2016 U.S. presidential election was merely one step in achieving this goal.  Assess the current state of U.S./Russian relations during the Trump and Putin presidencies and project how these relations may change in the next four years.

 

The Tao of Jazz

Register NowMeeting Date: Thursday, October 12
Meeting Time: 11 am-12:30 pm
Instructor: John Hanagan
Location:  UVM Alumni House, 61 Summit St., Burlington
Member: $15  Non-Member: $30

This class will use the jazz idiom to shed light on the tensions in every art, including the art of living, between structure and improvisation, technique and freedom, or, in Zen terms, form and emptiness. While playing some standard jazz classics, the instructor will demonstrate the metric structure of a jazz tune, and how a jazz musician approaches a song in order to explore the many facets of improvisation: melody, harmony, and rhythm. He will then use verses from the Tao Te Ching and other classics to demonstrate the various levels of artistic expression. During the presentation, he hopes to illustrate that structure and technique are not necessarily enemies of Beauty and Soul (although sometimes they can be), but that in its highest expression, jazz blends structure, technique, beauty and wonder into a unified field of music that is created by and embraces both the performer and the audience.

Cuba Today!

Register NowMeeting Date: Saturday, October 21
Meeting Time: 10 am-noon
Instructor: Sandra Baird
Location: Jeffords 127
Member: $20  Non-Member: $35

For more than 50 years, the United States was locked into an adversarial relationship with one of our nearest neighbors, the Republic of Cuba.  When Fidel Castro successfully led a revolution on the island and declared Cuba to be a sovereign and socialist nation in 1959, the United States broke diplomatic relations with Havana and declared an embargo prohibiting most trade and contact with Cuba. President Obama relaxed this Cold War policy, opened an embassy in Cuba and reestablished diplomatic relations with our neighbor. But with the new Presidency of Donald Trump, policy toward Cuba is once again in the crossfire of U.S. Politics. Will President Trump reverse Obama’s course of an opening to Cuba and return to the Cold War? In this course, we will discuss what is happening in Cuba today both from the point of view of the Cubans and their North American neighbors. We will also discuss what influence the new opening to Cuba has had on the Island’s economy, culture, and politics and on the economy, politics, and culture of the United States.

Instructor: Wolfgang Mieder
Location: The Residence at Quarry Hill, 465 Quarry Hill Rd., South Burlington
Member: Free  Non-Member: Free

Proverbs continue to play an important role in various forms of communication. The frequent appearance of traditional and new proverbs, both in their standard form as well as in innovative variations, is especially noticeable in the modern mass media. This talk will be illustrated by slides showing the modern use of such proverbs as “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire”, “When the cat is away, the mice will play”, “The early bird catches the worm”, “Garbage in, garbage out”, “Honesty is the best policy”, etc. While proverbs are not universally true, their wisdom contains a lot of common sense to descant upon.

Instructor: Tim Brookes

Member: $15  Non-Member: $30

What does the age of digital convergence, Facebook, and globalization mean for the future of the written word? Writer/carver/painter Tim Brookes offers remarkable and thought-provoking perspective on this question by looking at a range of forms of writing from all over the world that are in danger of extinction. He displays a carving of a piece of text in each script, leading a discussion on how technology will help – and always has helped – define the nature of communication, and shows how the story of a culture can be seen in its writing, even if that writing is (as in these examples) beautiful, utterly unfamiliar, and disappearing.

***IMPORTANT NOTE: Please park in the parking lot behind the Grasse Mount building immediately next door at 411 Main Street(corner of Summit and Main St.).
