DUMMERSTON -- The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will open this fall’s six-week series of lectures on Monday, Oct. 8.
In the morning programs, Meg Mott will present "The Politics of Eating," an investigation of how food production and consumption pertain to the right ordering of society. Mott teaches political theory at Marlboro College and is a popular OLLI lecturer.
The afternoon lectures, "The Marvelous Machine: The Workings of the Human Body," will be presented by Bob Engel, also of the Marlboro faculty and also an experienced leader of past OLLI programs. Engel will discuss the body considered as a machine, emphasizing that bodily systems must work in loose concert for the machine to function.
The morning programs will begin at 10 a.m. and run until noon. The afternoon programs will run from 1 to 3 p.m. All lectures take place at the Southeast Vermont Learning Collaborative, 471 Vermont Route 5, in Dummerston. Parking and handicapped access are available. Light refreshments are served at all lectures.
The lectures are produced by the local chapter of The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, now in its ninth year in Brattleboro. The Institute is a nationwide membership organization sponsoring programs for people aged 50 and over who wish to continue their education without tests, papers, or grades. Payment of full dues ($50) entitles members to attend all 12 lectures in the present series. Lectures
