America's Cold and Hot Asian Wars, 1945-1975

    America’s Cold and Hot Asian Wars, 1945-1975

    Register Here

    The breakdown in cooperation between the United States and the Soviet Union, allies in the defeat of the Axis Powers during World War II, led to three decades of intense competition and conflict in Asia, as the U.S. sought to contain Communism. Topics covered in this course include: the Chinese Revolution; the "reverse course" in policy toward Japan; the Korean War; alliance and nation building; the Vietnam War; the Sino-Soviet split; and the beginnings of Asia's economic rise. This thirty year American engagement proved very costly in lives and treasure and created severe domestic political and economic strains. Questions to ponder from our current perspective include: Was it all necessary? Did the results justify the costs?

    Instructor

    E. Bruce Reynolds, Professor of History at San Jose State University, earned his Ph.D. from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and for the past 25 years has taught East Asian, Southeast Asian and world history. He is the author of Thailand and Japan's Southern Advance, 1941-1945; Thailand's Secret War: OSS, SOE and the Free Thai Underground during World War II; and various articles and book chapters on international relations in Asia in the twentieth century. He has also edited and contributed to Japan in the Fascist Era. His current research focuses on American missionaries in China. He has also become a very popular Osher course instructor.

    Baroque Rome

    Register Here

    focuses on the art and culture of Rome in the early 17th century and the three artists whose activity left a lasting impact on the city we love today: Caravaggio, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Artemisia Gentileschi.  An examination of their works provides the lens through which to examine the significant social, cultural, spiritual, and artistic changes that have come to be known as the Baroque. Topics for discussion include: the visual agenda of the counter-reformation; Caravaggio’s mythologies; Artemisia Gentileschi and women artists; theatricality in the work and writings of Bernini; and the influence of Galileo upon the visual arts.

    Instructor 

    Blake de Maria, Chair of SCU’s Art and Art History Department, earned her Ph.D. in Renaissance and Baroque Art from Princeton University in 2003.  A specialist in Venetian art and architecture, Blake teaches courses focusing on early modern Mediterranean art and culture including:  “The Art of Power, Rome (1400-1600 C.E.)” and “The Family in 15th Century Florence.”  Advanced seminars include:  “Venice and the Other in the Renaissance” and “Early Islamic Art & Culture.”  Her own research and recent book, Becoming Venetian:  Immigrants and the Arts in Early Modern Venice, concentrates on the visual culture of early modern Venice.

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

    This workshop is presented in two parts but attendance at both is not required. Clinicians face a host of challenges when working with aggressive, oppositional, and treatment resistant youth. We will present a psychodynamic, strength-based model for evaluating, conceptualizing and treating children with a range of externalizing disorders. In addition, participants will learn about concrete and easy-to-implement strategies for conducting supportive (C.A.R.E) consultations with parents and classroom teachers. Through the lenses of psychoanalytic, developmental and resiliency theory, this workshop will explore practical and hopeful ways of treating frequently encountered clinical and relational issues of children. Participants are encouraged to bring cases for discussion and consultation.

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

    Most therapists have witnessed how a client’s disclosure of troubling personal information can often be a turning point in therapy, but the process of uncovering long-hidden areas of experience challenges both client and therapist. Secrets that are most tightly held, such as sexual abuse, rape, self-hatred, extramarital affairs, disenfranchised grief, and serious medical conditions, including HIV-status, are painful and often stigmatized experiences. Navigating this world of secrets and helping clients negotiate conflicts surrounding disclosure are hallmarks of the effective therapist.
     
    This one-day seminar will look at secrets in everyday clinical practice and identify
    therapeutic techniques and relationship qualities that can bring the dialectic of concealment and disclosure into the center of therapeutic action. Recent work on self-concealment, trauma disclosure, covert processes in therapy, therapist and client disclosure, and end-of-life closure will inform lectures and discussion.

FAI Drought Series - Ecopia Farms: Growing More with Less
  • Tuesday, Apr 29, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

    Part of FAI's Drought Series - Save Don't Squander: A Series on the Impact of the California Drought.

    California is in the midst of the worst recorded drought in state history, and the impact of the water shortage is only growing each day. Water is one of the most basic necessities and a precious commodity. This spring the Food and Agribusiness Institute will be hosting a series of panels, discussions, and reflections with multiple speakers who will address the implications of a “severe drought” for various communities. The speakers will provide students with multiple, intertwined perspectives of how our community is impacted by a drought of this scale and will also address potential solutions, including water efficient crops and other water saving measures.

    Ecopia Farms: Growing More with Less
    April 29 at 5:00 p.m. Lucas Hall, Forbes 126

    Ecopia Farms is a local farm researching ultra-low water use methods for agricultural production. The USDA reports that the average head of lettuce requires more than 75 gallons of water to reach harvest.  Ecopia Farms uses less than 12 ounces of water per head. This reduces the use of precious water by over 97% compared to conventional farm practices. Ecopia will discuss their research and explain how ultra-low water methods could be one of the answers to decreasing water availability in California and worldwide.

    Greater Need, Less Food: The Food Bank Conundrum
    May 1st, at 5:00 p.m. Lucas Hall, Forbes 126

    California food banks are receiving fewer donations from farmers and seeing increasing prices for produce they buy with donations and grants. Unemployment in the agricultural sector and other industries affected by the drought translates to greater need for unemployed workers and their families. Sue Sigler, the Executive Director of the California Association of Food Banks and Diane Zapata, Senior Manager of Food Resources for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, will discuss challenges and potential solutions for food banks at the local and state levels.

Great Cities: Capitals of Western History
  • Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

    Great Cities: Capitals of Western History

    Register Here

    Over the centuries, European history unfolded in a series of major stages. Each of these stages can be seen as having a Capital City, an urban center from which power and influence radiated. Part of this influence took the form of creative expression, since each of these cities were also capitals of a distinctive artistic culture. As the course moves chronologically from the Middle Ages into Modern times, our sessions highlight the leading city of its epoch – Venice in the High Renaissance, Madrid in the Age of Exploration, Amsterdam in the Time of Rembrandt and Vermeer, Londonas Seat of World Empire – Great Cities in their Golden Ages.

    Instructor: 

    Bruce Elliott received his Ph.D. in history from the University of California Berkeley. He teaches popular European history courses at several lifelong learning programs in the Bay Area, including: OLLI@SCU; Stanford Continuing Studies; and the Osher programs at UC Berkeley, Dominican University, and Sonoma State University. His courses explore the relationship between historical developments and artistic expression. He also leads summer travel-study trips to Europe.

Greater Need, Less Food: The Food Bank Conundrum
  • Thursday, May 1, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

    California, specifically our nearby Salinas Valley, is often regarded as the nation’s salad bowl. The drought is jeopardizing the state’s ability to grow the food that supplies much of the nation. Accordingly, food banks are receiving fewer donations from farmers and seeing increasing prices for produce they buy with donations and grants. Unemployment in the agricultural sector and other industries affected by the drought translates to greater need for unemployed workers and their families. Julia Lurie and Alex Park from Mother Jones will share findings from their research on the effects of the drought on CA agriculture. Sue Sigler, the Executive Director of the California Association of Food Banks and Diane Zapata, Senior Manager of Food Resources for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, will discuss challenges and potential solutions for food banks at the local and state levels.

Haussmann's Paris and Impressionism
  • Tuesday, May 6, 2014 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

    Haussmann’s Paris and Impressionism

    Register Here

    During the Second French Empire (1852–1870), Napoleon III named the Baron Haussmann as the mastermind behind the transformation of Paris into the quintessential modern city. New grands boulevards, monuments, vast public plazas and parks, as well as a massive new infrastructure altered Paris forever. We will investigate the controversial rebuilding project and the respective roles that the Emperor and the Prefect played in the reshaping of the city. The major focus of this course, however, is on artists’ responses to the new city. We will review in detail how major avant-garde figures such as Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir represented this new urban and suburban landscape in their paintings, and how they interpreted the changes this new landscape made to the life of Paris’ inhabitants, both rich and poor. An excursion to Montmartre, which was not included in the rebuilding program, will give us a view of an alternative Paris, seen particularly through the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

    As a university community we have engaged the provocative question raised by the Bannan Institute this year: “What Good Is God?” This Ignatian Retreat offers university faculty and staff an opportunity for personal prayer and reflection as we begin our summer months. Where has God been laboring in our work and service at Santa Clara University? How might divine love and life desire to heal and to enliven us? The sound and beauty of the ocean at Villa Maria del Mar offers us a privileged place and a grace-filled backdrop for our prayer and reflection.

    Memory: The Good, the Bad, the Reality

    Register Here

    Most people think of memory as a uniform phenomenon, something that we either do well or not so well but something that is fairly accurate.  None of those claims in fact is true. Through the study of people with memory disorders (such as Alzheimer's disease) and in examining every day memory of others (children through older adults), cognitive neuroscientists have discovered that there are multiple types of memory; that memory errors are more common than you'd like to think; and that everyone can develop superior memory skills.  In this course we'll discuss the neurobiology and fallibility of memory; and we will also discuss strategies to improve memory that work for everyone.

Osher Distinguished Speaker Series: California and the Future of Mass Transit

    Osher Distinguished Speaker Series: California and the Future of Mass Transit

    Register Here

    Course Description 
    Perhaps no state in the Union is more identified with the automobile than California. But how to make the shift to mass transit in a state whose transit system is defined by the automobile? This will be the topic addressed by Ron Diridon. Some of the issues he will address: Why is the U.S. determined to retain a carbon powered transportation system? As climate change becomes a crisis, how can the U.S. sustain international credibility when our 4% of the world’s population creates nearly 30% of its greenhouse gasses? Where will funding come from to build the next generation of travel infrastructure in Californian and America, including electrically-powered 200+ miles per hour high speed trains?

     

    Instructor/Speaker 
    Rod Diridon is known as the father of modern transit service in Silicon Valley and has chaired more than 100 international, national, state and local programs related to transit and the environment. He was appointed in 2001 and 2005 by Governors Davis and Schwarzenegger, respectively, to the California High Speed Rail Authority Board. Since 1995, he has been Executive Director of the Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI), a transportation policy research center created in 1991 by Congress; and he was recently elected Chair of the US High Speed Rail Association’s Board. Upon Diridon’s retirement from the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors in 1995 (termed out after 6 terms as Chair), the region’s main train station was renamed “San Jose Diridon Station.”

    During the last few centuries, manuscript discoveries have revolutionized our view of early Judaism, early Christianity, and the Bible. From the Dead Sea Scrolls to the gnostic codices from Nag Hammadi, from the Oxyrhynchus papyri to the great manuscripts from Egyptian desert monasteries, we now have a wealth of information that challenges our text of the Bible, our notions about Judaism and Christianity's relation to each other, and our picture of the diversity of early Christianity. This class will explore the major manuscript discoveries and what they tell us about religions past and present.

Shakespeare: The Play's the Thing 2014

    Shakespeare: The Play’s the Thing 2014

    Register Here

    The recent discovery of Richard III’s skeleton in a car park in Leicester, UK, has provoked even more interest than usual in Shakespeare’s portrayal of that infamous king. Our course will begin by discussing “Richard III: the Man and the Myth,” then we shall study Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Richard III. Subsequent classes will explore the three other Shakespearean dramas performed at the 2014 Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF): The Two Gentlemen of Verona; The Comedy of Errors; and The Tempest. Even if you have no plans to attend the Festival, these plays provide an excellent introduction to Shakespeare’s genius -- an English history/tragedy, two comedies, and a romance. Whether you are experiencing the wonder of Shakespeare for the first time or adding depth to your knowledge, here is the ideal opportunity to spend time with the greatest writer who ever put pen to paper. Class participants can choose their own level of study. Some students just come and listen; others watch the plays at home on DVD before or after class discussions. Some read the plays in depth and ask the professor obscure, difficult, and fascinating questions. Copies of the plays are available at all public libraries and bookstores. FREE texts are available on-line.

SIG Art Underpainting for landscapes: John Wiggin
  • Monday, May 5, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM


    OLLI member Sidney Mygatt has a very special, one-time Special Interest Group that she wants to host to introduce OLLI painters and potential painters to see a painting technique demonstrated by artist John Wiggin. It is Sidney’s hope that seeing John share his “tricks of the trade” will inspire and expand your outlets of expression.

    John, a working artist from 1969 to this day, owned and operated a gallery-studio in Los Gatos for 25 years and has painted many commissions, portraits, and murals. His art has been sold at many galleries including The Hunter Gallery in San Francisco and the Erickson Gallery in Palo Alto.
     
    In this presentation John will demonstrate how doing a technique called under painting on a canvas makes painting landscapes simple and fun. He will paint 2 canvases showing the effects of this technique, as well as other helpful hints that will encourage anyone to paint.
     
    Sidney says, “I, personally, think he is gifted as an artist. When I heard about the enthusiastic response he had to his presentations at The Niles Canyon Artist Co-Op Gallery and at the International Technical University (ITU) in San Jose, I wanted to share this with OLLI.”
     
    Please join us for this one-time Art SIG Monday, 5 May, 2:00-3:30PM, Loyola Room 160. Light refreshments will be served. I look forward to sharing this opportunity with you.

    A Sunless Sea (William Monk #18) by Anne Perry
     
    3.91 of 5 stars 3.91  ·  rating details  ·  1,221 ratings  ·  247 reviews
    As commander of the River Police, Monk is accustomed to violent death, but the entrails hanging from the mutilated female body found on Limehouse Pier one chilly December morning move him with horror and pity. The victim’s name is Zenia Gadney. Her waterfront neighbors can tell him little—only that the same unknown gentleman had visited her once a month for many years. She was quiet and dull, unlike the usual fallen doxy; her pillar of support was respectable Dr Lambourn, recent suicide after his government requisitioned report on opium was discredited.

    Monk's old superior Runcorn was first on the scene for Lambourn, and now suspects government suppression. Lambourn's beautiful wife wife Dinah, lies about her whereabouts, denies accusations, but Monk must arrest her despite his belief in her innocence. While public, press, government, and biased judge push for quick hanging before Xmas, Monk, his spirited wife Hester, and their brilliant barrister friend Oliver Rathbone, search for answers. From dank waterfront alleys to London’s fabulously wealthy West End, the three trail an ice-blooded murderer toward the unbelievable, possibly unproveable truth—and ultimately engage their adversaries in an electric courtroom duel.(less)
     
    Our next meeting is Tuesday, April 22 from 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM in Loyola Hall Room 160.

The Archaeology of the California Missions
  • Friday, May 9, 2014 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

    The Archaeology of the California Missions

    Register Here

    This course offers an archaeological perspective on the California missions, with a particular focus on the missions’ Native American inhabitants. Recent archaeological investigations at missions and associated sites offer fascinating windows into Native American life in colonial California, challenging many long-held assumptions about the process of missionization. Using Mission Santa Clara de Asís--on the campus of Santa Clara University--as a case study, we will explore archaeological and documentary evidence that reveals what life was really like inside the mission walls. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the wealth of mission-era archaeology on the SCU campus and to examine artifacts excavated from the Native American neighborhood at Mission Santa Clara. We will also consider the broader implications of the mission system across California and the enduring consequences of colonization for Native American groups living in California today.

    Instructor

    Lee Panich is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Santa Clara University and holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley. He has directed archaeological investigations at Mission Santa Clara de Asis, as well as at Mission Santa Catalina in Baja California, Mexico.

    Join Christelle Sabatier, Ph.D., in a discussion of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a book published by Rebecca Skloot in 2010. In this era of citizen science, easy genomic sequencing, and stem cell research, the story of Henrietta Lacks, who quietly passed away in 1951, continues to inform us. Her immortal cells have led to great scientific advances but at great emotional cost to her family. Dr. Sabatier is a Lecturer of Biology at Santa Clara University.

    The Science of Happiness

    Register Here

    Course Description 

    When we get what we wanted, why doesn't that always make us happy? Our relationships are embedded in the pursuit or loss of happiness. This course is an interdisciplinary review of the newest research that explains our experiences of happiness. Topics include: our brain’s biological happiness system; the effects of tragic or fortunate events; blind spots; counterfactual thinking/future-thinking; the science of laughter; and the communication roles of complaints versus gratitude. We will look at how happiness is affected by winning or by losing, as well as why predicting our future happiness (when we choose mates, careers, and material acquisitions) is often flawed. Participants will gain an understanding of what might (or might not) bring them, and those they care about, sustained happiness—for decisions we all make throughout our lives.

Think Big: A Lesson on Scaling
  • Tuesday, May 13, 2014 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM


    Dr. Richard Kohl 

    Business, non-profits, and social enterprises all aspire to address social problems at large scale.  Yet, they often do not understand how to develop and implement effective strategies to scale up their work. As a result, all too often promising innovations remain just that – promising – innovative, highly original and effective solutions to global poverty but operating only at small scale.  

    Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way.  

    Dr. Kohl will present his scaling up framework and illustrate his talk with specific applications to various cases.  His presentation will cover: 

    ·What exactly is meant by scaling up and its different types, forms, and methods.  

    ·The key challenges of scaling up, why breakdowns often occur, and what can be done to address them

    ·The steps or phases of scaling up and their associated tasks and tools.  

    ·The components of a scaling up strategy

    ·The scaling road less traveled: Why some pathways are more suited than others for particular types of innovations

    Richard Kohl is one of the very few international consultants who specializes in scaling up and sustainability and has worked not only with social enterprises and NGOs but with national governments, foundations, bilateral and multilateral donors.  He has been involved in the development and application of several of the current frameworks used for scaling up.  He will present this framework and lessons from others that have been successfully applied to interventions in public health, education, early childhood development, livelihoods, rural poverty alleviation and women’s empowerment in Central, South and East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, North America, and Brazil.

    Women in Frontier Mexican California

    Register Here

    January 28, 1800: A seven-year-old girl who had been abandoned in Mexico City travels by ship to California to help colonize California. What happens next? December 8, 1812: A young, pregnant woman is attending Mass at Mission San Juan Capistrano when the earthquake hits. Knocked to the ground, trampled upon, and unable to move.... and the fate of her unborn child? 1821: A young widow supporting a family looks for ways to work. Because she is an excellent cook, she is asked to participate in what could be considered a “Californio Cook-off.” Does she win? March 1829: A young Californio woman is about to marry an American sea captain in San Diego, but the wedding ceremony is brought to a screeching halt. But, why? Do they have a future? 1841: A French writer appears on the doorstep of the home of the daughter of an eminent presidio commander. Her husband is away at the time. What kind of mischief does this Frenchman get into? Can the woman stand her ground? These various situations may seem like material taken from the script of a Spanish telenovela but they really did happen. In this OSHER mini-course, we will learn of their fate, and more, as we explore the first-person accounts of 13 women who describe in great detail what it was like to live and survive on the California frontier during the 19th century.
