The second in a sequence of three art history courses, this study group begins with Archaic Greece and the influence of the Trojan War on vase painting and Egyptian art on statuary of this period. Archaic artists created ways to tell stories on vases and relief sculptures. Even though Classical Greece is much better known to the general public, we will talk about how Greek art found its way to the West. Lastly, we will look at early Christian architecture, paintings, and mosaics. I taught the introductory art history courses at Kent State University for eleven years, and I look forward to discussions with participants in this study group. Molly Lindner brings to this subject her 11 years of teaching art history at Kent State Univ. The Study Group meets on Tuesdays Nov. 10 to Dec. 15 from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access this Study Group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.

It Can Happen Here": Antisemitism, Gender, and the American Past
Pamela Nadell, American University
In 1942, an anonymous "Jewess," looking across the ocean, wrote "It Can Happen Here." Her cri de coeur, published in a New York women's magazine, pled with its readers to bring to an end to the "ever-increasing prejudice" she and her family faced. With antisemitism rising today at home and abroad, American University Professor Pamela Nadell, author of the award-winning America's Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today, discusses American Jewish women in the past facing antisemitism, how it affected their lives, and how they responded.
