L703 Winter 2020 Hot Topics
Mondays, 2:15–3:40, Jan. 27–Feb. 17
Instructor: Robert Cather
Class limit: 20
Interesting articles are published every week in prominent periodicals but are often overlooked as breaking news dominates. Our weekly discussions seek topics that are from the most respected periodicals, such as The Economist and The New Yorker, along with others that feature unusual story lines. We distribute a printed article each week in advance and make available the Internet source. We occasionally begin a discussion of a breaking news story by briefly highlighting its historical background
or location. Expect to see a New Yorker cartoon on the projection screen as we gather before the main article is discussed. Discussion can get quite lively; join us and see.
