Please note the following new classes have just been added for October:

LouvreOn Tuesday, October 10, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the Bronxville Public Library, David Brashear will enlighten us on the Invention of the Museum as Public Institution in the 18th and 19th Centuries (Course 5552). The Louvre and the Altes Museum served as the conceptual and architectural models for many national museums to follow.

New York Times Editorial Board Member Carol Giacomo returns to SAS for a one night lecture with Q&A on Hot Topics in Foreign Policy (Course 5551) on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the Bronxville Public Library. A former diplomatic correspondent who traveled the globe with eight different U.S. Secretaries of State during her long career, Giacomo will address recent the political turmoil involving Iran, Myanmar, and other nations.

Ai WeiweiOn , at 7 p.m., Elizabeth Thompson Colleary will introduce students to Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei’s public art installation, Good Fences Make Good Neighbors, on view from October 12, 2017, through February 11, 2018, at sites throughout New York City. The installation takes its name from Robert Frost's classic American poem Mending Wall, which explores the role and impulse for boundaries in society, where tradition and habit often mask fear and narrow mindedness, Weiwei's upcoming exhibition was inspired by the international migration crisis and tense sociopolitical battles surrounding the issue in the United States. Weiwei transforms the metal wire security fence into a powerful artistic symbol of division. Colleary’s one-session lecture, Mending Wall: Preview of Weiwei's Good Fences Make Good Neighbors (Course 5554), will prepare students to see the exhibition as well as provide background on the artist and his other compelling public works.

For those interested in the many hot topics making headlines internationally today, please note the following upcoming classes that still have openings:
