CLASS DESCRIPTION

The New Kingdom period of Egyptian history, which ran from the 16th century to the 11th century BCE, was the time during which the Egyptians created an empire. A succession of extraordinarily capable pharaohs, covering the 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasties, laid the foundations of a strong state and pushed the control beyond the traditional borders of Egypt into Palestine and Nubia. The Egyptians entered into a period of unprecedented wealth, cultural achievements, and success in international affairs. In this course we will examine Egyptian power, creative pursuits, artistic accomplishments, and way of life. The great figures considered will include Thutmose III, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, Tutankhamun, and Ramesses the Great.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

For much of the 20th century, Carl Sandburg was, if not the Voice of America, one of its significant and honored voices. How does what he said, wrote, and represented hold up in the 21st century? Where is he wise; where is he naïve; what does he say that is timeless and universal, and what has faded in the direction of marginal relevance? Is Sandburg’s standing in literary and cultural consciousness an example of Cultural Amnesia? To appreciate, and differentiate between, what is enduring and what is dated in Sandburg’s writing, we will interactively read his marathon poem “The People, Yes.” Is it still The People Yes, or has it become The People, Yes, No, and Maybe? Please bring to class The Complete Poems of Carl Sandburg, published by Harcourt, Inc., or any edition of “The People, Yes.”
