Spring Osher Lectures

DUMMERSTON—The Brattleboro Chapter of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will present the fourteenth in it annual offerings of morning and afternoon lectures on Monday, March 27. The morning lectures, “The Concept of Race,” will be given by William Edelglass, Professor of Philosophy and Director of Environmental Studies at Marlboro College. The topic will be the history of the idea of race and its implications today. The first lecture will take up the prehistory of the concept of race. The afternoon series, “Solving Conflicts,” will consider ways and means of conflict resolution. There will be three different lecturers, the first of whom, Melvin Shakun, is an emeritus professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. In his first lecture, he will discuss conflict resolution as problem solving.

The Osher Lectures are held on six successive Mondays. Morning lectures run from 10 a.m. to noon; afternoon lectures, from 1 to 3 p.m.

All lectures are held at the Vermont Learning Collaborative, 471 US Route 5, Dummerston. Parking and handicapped access are available, and light refreshments are served at the lectures.

The lectures are produced by the Brattleboro OLLI chapter. OLLI is a nationwide membership organization sponsoring programs for people aged fifty and over who wish to continue their education without tests, papers, or grades. Payment of full membership dues ($50) entitles members to attend all twelve lectures in the present series. Partial memberships ($30) entitle subscribers to attend six sessions in either morning or afternoon, but not both. Couples are welcome to join as full members at a discounted rate of $80 ($50 for partial membership). Lectures are also open to nonmembers for a fee of $6 per lecture.
