The Poetry We Didn't Appreciate in School


with Catherine McIntyre

Course Description: Do you vaguely remember bits of poems and ideas from school?

This class will read and discuss a few classics and a few you may not have encountered. Each participant can suggest their favorites.

Notes: Be prepared to read, think, and discuss. Do not worry if you feel rusty, the point is to enjoy the great themes of literature now that we are mature enough to appreciate them.

Crime, Property Crime: What is it and How Much is There?


with Kathy Johnson

Calendar Sep 21, 2023 at 1 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Course Description: Do we have a crime problem in America? Do we have a property crime problem in America? Wait, what is this property crime thing you mention? Well, one thing it is not is violent. It rarely makes the headlines and it may not even have a human victim! We'll talk about property crimes (what they are and are not) and how they are punished, or not. We'll talk about why it works that way. "But we don't talk about Bruno." If this is your first time in this class and if all goes well, you will leave class more bewildered, bemused, and befuddled than when you started, or not!

Class Leader Bio(s): Dr. Kathy Johnson received a BS in 1987 and MS in 1989 in Criminal Justice from Illinois State University. Her PhD in Criminology is from Indiana University in Pennsylvania. She is currently a tenured associate professor of Criminal Justice for UWF.
