Adventures in Lifelong Learning

Adventures in Lifelong Learning

Lifelong Learning is going on the road, as soon as we have clearance to hold our events! In 2020 we are starting “Adventures” — a new series of courses at sites around the state. Many Wake Forest alumni rarely if ever get to hear one of today’s stellar Wake Forest teacher/scholars. And we also know that many of our Lifelong Learners in the Triad area like to travel. We are starting with an all-day Saturday format (9:30—4:30) which allows for those traveling to the site to make a weekend of it, or if the site is close enough to home, to just drive back.


Nazi Germany and the Jews

Nazi Germany and the Jews: From Isolation to Annihilation (POSTPONED)

Early North Carolina: Stories of Turmoil and Aspiration

Early North Carolina: Stories of Turmoil and Aspiration (POSTPONED)

Like all thirteen American colonies of England, North Carolina’s development was never straightforward or easy. From early confusion over boundaries and property lines, to the influx of a wide variety of racial and ethnic cultures, war, slavery, the struggle for settlement and civic stability, North Carolina’s history is a fascinating, complex, and often troubling story. The day includes morning snack, lunch, and the expertise of Wake Forest University Faculty.
