11/09/2019 - Talk: History of the Rise & Fall of the Berlin Wall
November 9 marks the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. As the world commemorates this historic event, J. Elke Ertle, will discuss the factors that led to the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961 and the dynamics that brought it down in 1989. Elke, born and raised in West Berlin, was fifteen years of age on that summer day in August when construction of the Wall first began. She vividly recalls how West Berliners, whose city was no more than a tiny capitalist island within a large communist sea, were terrified of winding up behind the Iron Curtain. Elke will end the discussion by reading a brief excerpt from her memoir,
11/03/2019 - Talk: Should We Doubt Shakespeare's Identity?
Join us and Bryan H. Wildenthal for a friendly and fascinating journey into the authorship question. More than 400 years after Shakespeare's time, and more than 150 years after modern alternative authorship theories began running riot in the mid-19th century, what do we really know for sure? Did William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon work with numerous co-authors, most of them uncredited at the time, as most mainstream scholars now argue? Is the case for his primary authorship really as airtight as most mainstream scholars claim? Why have some of the greatest writers, artists, intellectuals, and judicial and political leaders of modern times doubted that traditional story? Was Shakespeare of Stratford a front-man for a hidden aristocratic author? What did Ben Jonson know, and slyly hint at? What can the "Shakespeare" plays and poems themselves tell us about this issue? In his new book, "Early Shakespeare Authorship Doubts", Bryan subjects both the traditional story and the various skeptical theories to careful scrutiny.
