Events for Tuesday, May 06, 2014
- Description: Winning may be the only thing, but there have been “losers” in past presidential elections whose impact on American politics and culture far outlived their losses and sometimes the achievements of the “winners.” This course will take a thoughtful look at candidates, often reviled in their time, who were able to give voice to issues whose time had not yet come or forge realignments of the electorate which would benefit others. The candidates have been chosen for their unique contributions to American society at different stages of our development. Historical videos will supplement the class discussions. Week 1: 6/16/14 Henry Clay: Lincoln’s Idol Week 2: 6/23/14 William Jennings Bryan: Voice of the Common Man Week 3: 6/30/14 Al Smith: The Man Who Made Catholics Americans Week 4: 7/7/14 Barry Goldwater: Harbinger of the Reagan Revolution Week 5: 7/14/14 George McGovern: Slayer of the Political Bosses Each mini-course is $25. Yearly membership is $50 and includes unlimited courses from September 1, 2013 until August 31, 2014.
