Mini-course April 2018

In April of 2018, we ran a mini-course, a weekly discussion for five weeks.

It was small, starting with 5 participants and ending with 2, but we had some great conversations. The mini-course focused on art and literature. Some of the topics we discussed were:

  • Shakespeare’s St Crispin’s Day Speech
  • Different stereotypes between the branches
  • Paintings by Winslow Homer
  • Who owns an image
  • How do civilian experiences of war differ from that of soldiers?

I was nervous going in — what was this going to be? — but felt recharged and full of questions and new ideas after every class.

I’m still nervous about the class in 2019; I still don’t know what it’s going to be. But now that trepidation is leavened by the excitement of what I know can happen in the classroom.
