    Political cartoonists are a gift to society. They are among our most compelling social critics. Using artistry, humor, and in-depth knowledge of current events, cartoonists craft commentary that captures the essence of controversial issues and encourages us to think further. Let’s look at how cartoonists carry out their passion for creating change, as they take on issues of current social and political concern, both nationally and internationally – the Covid pandemic, the war in Ukraine, gun violence, Roe v. Wade, etc. We’ll talk about recent developments in the cartooning profession and the challenges cartoonists are now facing.

    America has been involved with Afghanistan since the Soviet invasion of December 1979… no that’s not right. Americans have been involved with Afghanistan since 1828 when an lone American would lead an army into the country and be declared Prince of Ghor in 1838. His descendant, the current Prince currently lines in Los Angeles. His life would lead Rudyard Kipling to write, The Man Who Would Be King in 1888.  Please register for this class if you are interested in participating via Zoom only.  You must have access to a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.

    Shortly after the announcement of the Daguerreotype process to the French Academy of Science in January 1839, the chemist Jean Baptiste Dumas wrote to its inventor, Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre, "you have put a new force in the hands of man...a new agent destined to produce an incalculable evolution in the art of imitation..."  The first daguerreotypes made in Rochester were by tentative itinerant makers beginning as early as June 1841 and in the following few years, images both excellent and mediocre – but always astounding in their way, were produced in downtown studios in the Reynolds Arcade and several other places east of the river. This presentation will discuss this evolution – a brief, bright shining moment that was all but over by 1860, when cheaper materials and faster processes replaced the exquisite one-of-a kind daguerreotype. It will be illustrated with daguerreotype portraits of both identified and unknown Rochesterians from several local museum and historical society collections.

    When Killing Someone Seemed the Only Way Out.  Killing someone has always been at the top of everyone’s list of immoral acts. But by the 20th century, there has become one universal exception: Adolph Hitler. He’s the topic of thousands of stories about time travel, where eliminating him is the prime objective. And during his lifetime, even his closest allies realized the only way out of their predicament was assassinating the man they had followed. But ironically, after many attempts—none of them succeeded. And lots of people tried… or so they claimed. Please register for this class if you are interested in participating via in person only.

    A lot has happened since Donald Trump rose to prominence and the presidency. In this class we'll take a look at religion in the Trump era. The changes have been significant – from Supreme Court rulings. to Jan 6, to the decline in church membership. Some are directly related to Trump, some indirectly and some not at all. Why do some on the political right believe they are “under siege”. We'll look at it all, with a special emphasis on Christian Nationalism (is it a threat to democracy?). The 2024 election is upon us and religion is likely to play a major rule. Hopefully this class will give us some insight into what's likely to happen and after the election, what did happen.
