If asked what instruments were played in European “classical” or “art” music, most people would think of the piano, the voice, and instruments used in the orchestra such as the violin, the oboe, or the trombone. Fewer would list the vielle, the shawm, the theorbo, or the sackbut, and yet all of these featured in music of their own times. In this course, we discuss the history of musical instruments: the roles they filled in society, the repertoire they played, the needs that led to their invention, change, or demise, and the idea of “period” performance. Each week, we focus on one period in history, from the medieval era through the general codification of accepted “art” instruments. Live demonstrations of instruments and concepts, as well as recordings, help bring to life, and literally to the ear, the sounds of “a thousand twangling instruments” – or at least some.

American Tapestry: The Stories We Still Tell Ourselves

Andrew Roth, Scholar in Residence, The Jefferson Educational Society

 

Wednesdays, February 5-March 4

1:30-3:30 p.m.

 

Is there such a thing as "the American Story" or are there many American stories? If so, what are they?  How do they combine to create the American narrative binding us together as a nation and as a people? More fundamentally, in these fractious times why is how we answer these questions important? The five-part series begins with "We Tell Ourselves Stories", proceeds to "Freedom at Home and Abroad", "Freedom's Faultlines: Stories of Race and Gender", "Hamiltonian Economics and a Nation of Hustlers" and concludes with "The Immigrant's Tale.”  This course is replete with images, videos and music essential to America's many stories.

Crossing: A History of the Transatlantic Passage

John Grabowski, Associate Professor of Applied History, CWRU

 

Wednesdays, March 18-April 22

1:30-3:30 p.m.

 

Before the advent of fast, reliable air transport, “the only way to cross” an ocean was by ship.   This course will examine travel by ship from the seventeenth century to the present.   It is a story of immigration, travel adventures, disaster, design, and of an industry that transformed the world.  Shipping companies ranging from Cunard to the Hamburg American Line were powerful private enterprises, but also assets to, and symbols of the nations they represented.   This six session course will cover the age of sailing ships, the rise of steam-powered packet service, the importance of the immigrant trade, and the era of the great ocean liners ranging from the Mauritania to the Queen Mary and the Normandie, each of which epitomized an era of speed and style.    We will also focus on the rise and the history of cruising, an industry that dominates the oceans of the world today.
