    Perhaps no other region of our country has inspired as many stories, myths, and legends as the American West.  But along with the 'cowboys and Indians', the prospectors and outlaws, the western landscapes of the American continent are filled with complexity.  The region west of the Mississippi is considered the most culturally and racially diverse of the United States and has been the context for many of our nation's most important issues, such as the struggle for indigenous rights, questions of resource management, competing visions of government, and the role of immigration.  Please join Dr. Nell Brownell for a five-week exploration that will include lecture, video, and discussion; short readings will be assigned but no tests required

    Almost everyone has, or will, fly in a commercial airplane.  However, only a few flyers (or future flyers) understand the basic concepts of flight and how airplane operations are managed.  What makes an airplane fly and how does it stay in the air, even when weighing several tons?  What keeps aircraft in flight from running into each other, and how do airplanes get from one place to another?  How does Air Traffic Control work?  How is safety ensured?  This course will examine these, and other factors involved in aircraft operation.  This class may include a field trip to the Pima Air and Space Museum depending on the COVID 19 status.

    Noel Coward was one of England’s most notable 20th Century dramatists. He was also a composer, director, screenwriter, actor, singer, and even a Secret Service worker. This course will review his multi-faceted life and career and focus on some of his plays. We will examine in depth Blithe Spirit, Private Lives, Hay Fever, and Fallen Angels. I will peruse his musical career and present some of his most famous songs. The focus will be to ascertain why this person is known by so many in so many fields, and to solidify his place in dramatic literature.  Students should purchase the book, Noel Coward:  Three Plays [Blithe Spirit, Hay Fever, and Private Lives], Grove Press, 1965, from Amazon.

    This course will describe and explain the key issues facing physics today.  Our deep understanding of the universe, from tiny quanta to galaxies, is founded on measurements and observations.  They have expanded the scope of our explanatory power but have led to major challenges to our understanding.  These have enabled us to articulate what we don’t know.  Are these dead ends or rich opportunities for more discovery and wonder?  We will consider these topics:  What’s the matter with Dark Matter?  Where does Dark Energy come from?  The enigmas of Black Holes, Quantum Mechanics (still spooky after 100 years), Time Zero—the shrouded mystery of the Big Bang, and the really hard questions—strings, loops, and quantum gravity.
