OLLI @ UConn Reed Lecture Series – Political Science Fiction: Star Trek II: Wrath Of Khan
November 21, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
OLLI at UConn is a member-driven program offering non-credit learning experiences (courses, lectures, and special events) to all adults who are 50 or older and want to engage socially and intellectually with their peers as teachers and learners. Join us on Thursday, November 21st at 4:00pm for this fascinating Fall film series (sponsored by OLLI at UConn, the UConn Waterbury administration and the UConn Center of Excellence for Teaching) presenting science fiction through a Political Science lens! Each film will include a pre-screening introduction explaining the real-world social and political themes illuminated by the movie. The lectures will be presented by Professor Stephen Dyson, who will be teaching at the Waterbury campus this Fall in addition to his teaching and scholarship responsibilities on the Storrs campus. In Fall 2014, David and Joan Reed created the David and Joan Reed Faculty Fellowship to bring UConn Storrs faculty to teach at the Waterbury campus. This year, Professor Stephen Dyson (Dept. of Political Science) has been awarded the Reed Fellowship, one of UConn’s top teaching honors, and has collaborated to organize a series of public lectures at the UConn Waterbury campus. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Call 203-236-9924 for more information.
