W19-43 EXPLORING GLOBAL CULTURAL DIFFERENCES THROUGH A TRAVEL WRITER’S EYES
Wednesdays: 9-10:20 a.m.
8 Sessions: Jan. 16-Mar. 6
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Garry Grossman

The best travel writers don’t merely describe popular, exotic foreign destinations. Rather, as detectives, historians, and anthropologists, they open a window onto our strange, seedy, and wonderful world, bringing us unique insights into our own culture. Transport yourself “beyond? in this stimulating seminar (one article each week). Some provocative recent articles: (1) a first-person trekking account of the dramatic changes in Greenland’s biosystem and topography from receding glaciers; and (2) how the “epidemic” of facial cosmetic surgery in S. Korea is a surprising legacy of the Korean War and, oddly, has even older historical roots in Korea.

Silver Member: $95; Gold Member: $85.50.
