Society often tries to fix things, but creates something worse. This is a very important, but not commonly discussed topic.
A leading historian advises that "The law of unintended consequence is the only real law of history."
The course will explore case studies starting with Adam and Eve, and proceed through modern times, dealing with war, economic actions, and law enforcement. The presentation and discussion will compare what was intended with what actually occurred. Participants will come away with a more enlightened way of looking at the events that are continuously occurring around us.

In the year 1600, some British merchants sailed to Asia in search of fortune in trade and built "factories" in India's coastal towns. In the course of time, it expanded into an empire of Britain. Second World War bankrupted Britain and they ceded power in 1947 to two political entities, India and Pakistan.
The lectures will include the history of the conquest, the functioning of the empire and the resulting political, social, economic, and cultural changes, as well as the birth of a modern democracy in India.
Study group leader Venkat Lakshminarayanan has led many OLLI study groups on Indian history, culture and religions.
This study group will meet for seven Wednesdays beginning March 10.
Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.

Can inanimate objects store and communicate traumatic memory that cannot be directly expressed? This talk examines 'folk art' made by non-professional Polish artists - many of them village laborers - documenting the German Nazi occupation of Poland and the Holocaust. Made largely in the 1960s and 70s, these objects are uncanny: at times deeply moving, at others grotesque, they can also be disturbing for the ways they impose Catholic idioms on Jewish suffering, or upend accepted roles of victim, perpetrator, and bystander.
Presentation by Dr. Erica Lehrer, Concordia University
