The Claire R. Jacobus Lecture Series

001 RUSSIA 1917-2017: LOOKING BACK, LOOKING AHEAD

Tuesday, 8:00 pm, Oct. 17, 8 sessions

"...Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma."

Churchill's famous description seems as apt today as it was in 1939.  In this series we will be exploring the Russia of the past 100 years from vantage points that will include history, politics, the arts, literature, and science.  Our experts have selected topics of interest and importance in all these fields with the aim of helping us understand the complex Russia of today.  We will look back to the Revolution and ahead to the unfolding 21st century.

Is Russia still a riddle...a mystery...an enigma?

These lectures are co-sponsored by the Princeton Adult School and the Community Auditing Program of Princeton University’s Office of Community and Regional Affairs.

NOTE: Lectures will be held in the Friend Center Auditorium, William and Olden Streets. Park in lot # 10 or 10A between Olden Street and Washington Road. You will receive a course ticket for the entire series at check-in at the first lecture you attend. No prior confirmation will be sent.

002 THE NEW JERSEY 2017 ELECTION: WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

Wed., 7:30 - 9:00 pm,

Oct. 18, 25, Nov. 8, 3 sessions

(No class Nov. 1)  $65

Voting is a right best exercised by people who have taken time to learn about the issues.”  --Tony Snow

All gubernatorial elections are important, but New Jersey’s is uniquely important this year since only two states – Virginia is the other one – are electing governors. After the contentious federal election, the nation will be watching to see how Governor Christie’s seat is filled and whether voters are energized and active. And, what will happen with an entire legislature up for election with a large number of open positions?

This three-session course will explore this election in New Jersey, the campaigns and the candidates and what the outcome means.
 

 

October 18 - The Issues

What are the essentials of New Jersey government and politics that are likely to shape this election?

INGRID W. REED, retired director of The New Jersey Project, Rutgers’ Eagleton Institute of Politics.

October 25 - The Candidates

What are the campaigns and the candidates saying and doing for this election?  A panel of respected, informed and active representatives from the New Jersey Democratic and Republican campaigns will be interviewed by JOHN MOONEY, founding journalist and CEO of www.njspotlight.com.

November 8 - What happened?  Why? What Now?

A day-after analysis of the election BY PROFESSOR BEN DWORKIN, Director of Rider University’s Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics.

NOTE: This course is located in the Gambrell Room, a choral rehearsal loft in Scheide Hall that is one of the most beautiful spaces on the Princeton Theological Seminary campus.  Scheide Hall is located next to Miller Chapel on the campus off Mercer Street.

003 THE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM: HOW JUDAISM, CHRISTIANITY, AND ISLAM HAVE SHAPED THE MIDDLE EAST AND OUR WORLD PHS

Gabriel Sawma, lawyer and expert on Islamic Sharia law

Tues., 7:00–8:30 pm, Oct. 10, 6 sessions
$95

 

The history of the modern world has been a story of both conflict and the melding of cultures.  Three monotheistic religions have played an outsized role in the evolution of the Western World: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  How have these religions and the cultures they embrace led us to where we are today?  How has each molded the way we think about each other?  This course will examine the impact of religion on contemporary Middle Eastern culture. The course will focus on specific national settings where religion has played a decisive role: Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Israel. Internal divisions and tensions will be explored as well as inter-religious conflicts.

NOTE: There will be a $5 materials fee payable to the instructor at the first class.

Denise Asfar, Latin-lover
Westminster Choir College Latin instructor $130
Tues., 6:00–9:30 pm, Oct. 24, Nov. 14, 28, Dec. 12, 4 sessions

 

“The mind shudders to remember ... but here is the tale:” Thus wrote Pliny the Younger, with his eye-witness account of the eruption that destroyed Pompeii and its wealthier neighbor, Herculaneum, whose lavish homes include the Villa of the Papyri.

We’ll read first-hand accounts of Herculaneum before, during, and after the disaster, in the context of what recent research on human remains and carbonized papyrus scrolls there reveals about Rome’s powerful elite. The use of bilingual texts by Cicero, Pliny, et al. will introduce beginners to Latin, while improving reading skills of more advanced students. There’s an optional trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Roman galleries.
TEXT: All required texts will be supplied by the instructor.  Recommended Texts: Wheelock’s Latin (Harper Collins); Pliny the Younger, Letters, Volume I (Loeb Classical Library 55, bilingual text, translated by Betty Radice); Langenscheidt's Pocket Latin-English dictionary.

What good is a book without pictures? -C.S. Lewis

A picture is worth a thousand words. -Tess Flanders.

We will look at illustration - whether it be book illustration, archaeological illustration, fashion illustration, illustration of ideas such as cartoons, and others.  We will look at the history of illustration, look at great illustrators, and maybe try our hand at it, if anyone cares to do.  We will also discuss the line where illustration becomes art, or vice versa. Was Erté an artist or illustrator?  He defined both fashion and theater in the Art Deco age, and still exerts influence. Beatrix Potter? -  artist and naturalist, and her White Rabbit... we are back to C.S Lewis. Join the class, and if you like, bring a sketchbook.

015 MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE AND OF ROME
AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY PHS

Elena Livingstone-Ross, teacher of art history and European history $135

Thurs., 7:00–8:30 pm, Oct. 5, 9 sessions (No class Nov. 23)

This title is partially taken from an excellent TV drama series about the Medici, a great banking family without which, arguably, Italian Renaissance would have taken a very different course.  This family, through its ingenuity, acquired and maintained the power of wealth and intellect to unearth the treasures long-buried, to make the voices of those long dead begin to speak again, and to spread enthusiasm for classical culture and passion for beauty throughout the West. Between Cosimo di Giovanni de' Medici, the first of the Medici's political dynasty, who poured his vast wealth into learning, arts and architecture, thus injecting energy into Florentine Renaissance in the early 15th century, and Giulio di Giuliano de' Medici (aka Pope Clement VII), a pleasure-seeking voluptuary who saw much of it devastated in 1527, during the Sack of Rome, and was partially responsible for it, a century passed (one of the greatest centuries mankind ever witnessed.) As much attention will be given to history and historical personalities, as to art.

016 THREE MODERN DAY AUTEUR DIRECTORS PHS  NEW!

Ann Casano, adjunct professor of film studies

Thurs., 6:30 – 9:30 pm, Nov. 2, 6 sessions

(No class Nov. 23)  $139

 

Beginning in the late 1940s a group of French film theorists, including Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut, would get together over coffee and discuss the differences between auteur directors and non-auteur directors (they would call them metteur-en-scène or mere technicians.) They argued that a true auteur director had a distinct visual style and explored consistent themes, that a film’s director is its author. In essence, one could simply look at their films and instantly know who directed them. To these French scholars, many of whom would eventually make films in the French New Wave genre, auteur directors were “artistic” and their films were simply better than everyone else’s.

In today’s modern day cinema, the auteur theory is alive and well. In this class, we will deconstruct three modern day auteurs, by examining their complete oeuvre and watching/analyzing two of their signature films. We will also discuss the issues of the auteur theory. We are living in an age where superhero films, remakes, reboots, and sequels have completely dominated the cinema market. Does it really matter who directed the latest Iron Man movie? Are too many directors today forced to think about box office over artistic integrity?

If you have a passion for the cinema and love to talk about the movies, then this is the perfect class for you. This is a discussion-based course where you will not only get to screen six outstanding films, but you will also get the opportunity to talk about those films at length.

The phrase “the world is shrinking” is often used, yet many cultures remain foreign to us.  Film is one way of familiarizing ourselves with the way life is lived in other regions of the world.   This course will explore the developments in several national cinemas including Italian Neo-Realism, French New Wave, Indian Cinema, Hong Kong Cinema, and Middle Eastern Cinema with a focus on Iranian film. Films under consideration are: “Rome Open City”, “Breathless”, “Aparajito”, “A Taste of Cherry” and “Chungking Express”.

018 THEATRE IN 3-D (see note for location)
(includes two scripts*)
Paula T. Alekson,
Artistic Engagement Manager
at McCarter Theater
$155

Lectures: 7:30–9:00 pm, Wed.,  Sept. 13, 19, (Please note that the 19th is a Tuesday; the class date is shifted due to Rosh Hashanah), Oct. 4, 18, 25, Nov. 8, 29, 7 sessions

Performances: Wed., Sept. 27, SIMPATICO; Thurs., Oct. 26, A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN; Sat., Nov. 18, The Princeton and Slavery Project Plays

Meaning in all written work is shaped by both the author’s intention and what the reader brings to the text. Plays are unique in offering a third dimension of meaning: that created by the director, actors, and designers. This course will focus on the two plays offered this fall as a part of McCarter Theatre Series, as well as the readings of several new ten-minute plays commissioned for the Princeton and Slavery Project, a Princeton University and McCarter partnership. We will discuss each play and its meaning before each performance; see the play as a group, if you wish; and then explore what has been revealed by the production/reading.


The plays to be included are:
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard’s Simpatico, a tragicomedy set among a seedy segment of thoroughbred racing, centers on the tense and troubled relationship of a now wealthy breeder, Carter, and his derelict dependent long-time friend, Vinnie. This production of the play—an extraordinary dramatic vehicle for actors—unites McCarter and Chicago’s A Red Orchid Theatre, and will be directed by ensemble director Dado and feature ensemble members, including Tony and Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon. A Night with Janis Joplin by Randy Johnson provides the opportunity to study an alternative to the conventional book musical and watch its translation from script to stage. This “music driven theatre event”—part musical biography, part jukebox musical, part rock concert—focuses on the artistic development of the legendary “rock mama” Janis Joplin and features the great American Blues singers who inspired her career and influenced her idiosyncratic style. A public reading of the Princeton and Slavery Project Plays, commissioned by McCarter in collaboration with Princeton University’s Princeton and Slavery Project, will feature new, short dramatic works by Nathan Alan Davis, Jackie Sibblies Drury, Dipika Guha, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Kwame Kwei-Armah, Emily Mann, and Regina Taylor. These playwrights consulted with undergraduate and doctoral history student scholars at Princeton and utilized historical material, letters, and artifacts from the University archives to inspire their artistic responses reflective of the historical past, as well as our contemporary culture in the present moment.

Tickets and Texts: Student should purchase their own copies of Sam Shepard’s Simpatico published by Vintage Books (1995; ISBN-10: 0679763171; ISBN-13: 9780679763178); copies can be purchased at Labyrinth Book or online. Manuscript copies of Randy Johnson’s A Night with Janis Joplin and The Princeton and Slavery Project Plays will be provided for students by the instructor.  In addition, the students will purchase discounted tickets for Simpatico and A Night with Janis Joplin during the first class meeting. These tickets will be priced at $35 per play. (Each student may purchase one additional ticket for the same performances at the same price.) Students who already have reserved tickets for these plays may exchange them if they wish. Tickets/seats for The Princeton and Slavery Project Plays will be arranged separately by the instructor. This event is free, but only one ticket per student will be obtainable.

NOTE: This class will meet in the President’s Lounge Board Room on the lower level of McCarter’s Matthews Theater.  It is accessed through the 91 University Place Administrative Services entrance. *Copy costs for the second and third plays are included in the cost of the course.

By learning the traditional upholstery process, you'll give a second chance to your chairs, avoid waste and your old and unusable chair will become yours again. You'll be getting a chair custom made just for your style...It requires many stages, with different materials (jute webbing, springs (or not, depending on the chair), burlap, horse hair, muslin, cord, string, batting), and tools (magnetic hammer, stretcher, upholstery needles...).  The style of chair or stool makes the difference between an easier or more difficult project. The methods are similar, but takes more time and more steps on an elaborate chair.

BEGINNER: Bring a stool, bench or a classic chair, without back, the most straight and flat as possible. The wood always needs to be visible...perfect to learn each stages of traditional upholstery.

INTERMEDIATE OR ADVANCED STUDENT: You must have taken prior class or have permission from instructor. You can bring a chair with visible wood, but now you're ready to work on different forms (curved seats, with back attached or detached, always avoid buttoned chairs), to learn new steps to redo. Send a picture of your piece to the instructor if you have questions: lounge.chezcel@gmail.com.

TOOLS AND SUPPLIES: Each student should email the instructor lounge.chezcel@gmail.com prior to signing up to estimate the cost of these items for your project. You will need to have your own tools, a kit is around $150 plus it may cost up to $200 for supplies, fabric and trimming such as such as burlap, twine, webbing, muslin, cotton batting and horse hair to complete a traditional chair.

Deciding which personal legal and financial documents to keep and which to throw can be daunting. As a result, most of us either keep everything and eventually face the problem of bloated files in precious space or attempting to replace a critical record that got tossed unknowingly. In this mini-course, we’ll review the importance of personal documents, such as bills, receipts, contracts, insurance policies and statements, bank and broker statements, investment prospectuses and reports, appraisals, annuity contracts and bills, wills, powers of attorney, prenuptials, trust agreements, and tax returns. Some records may be irreplaceable and should be kept in a locked fireproof file; others may be kept in a permanent file; others may be kept for a definite period of time before tossing; still others can be immediately tossed so they never make it into the files in the first place. Making sure the files and folders are set up properly for your purposes will smooth the job of filing away the papers and records.
