F302 Winter 2020 The History of the Mediterranean Basin: A Warning to Modern Man
Tuesdays, 9:40–11:05, Jan. 28–Feb. 25, no class Feb. 18
Instructor: Elisabeth Wolpert

Humans learned to live together around the Mediterranean Sea. There they discovered agriculture, invented commerce and geometry, founded vast empires and new religions, and welcomed democrats and philosophers. Unfortunately, the Mediterranean region is now subject to a population explosion, climate changes, and a lack of resources. More than ever, people need to learn again to live together. The region tells a story for the future.
Elisabeth Wolpert was born and educated in France, and her doctoral thesis dealt with 16th century French literature. She enjoys being at OLLI, where she has taught several courses.
