NHIS 131C - Women in History

This course starts around 1800 with the settling of Northeast Ohio and the ever-shifting roles of pioneer women. Then we move to progressive sentiment on women's rights and education for women in the decades prior to the Civil War. These ideas along with abolitionism and temperance had much support in Northeast Ohio during these years, a topic that will be extensively exployed. In the later 19th century-early 20th century movement for women suffrage, Northeast Ohio was a state leader, something the course will emphasize. During both world wars, as men served in the military, Northeast Ohio women held jobs that had previously been male dominated, a subject that the class will study. In the relative affluence of the immediate post-WWII years, the ascendant consumerism places women squarely in the homemaker role, a phenomenon that figured strongly in Northeast Ohio life, and which conscludes this course.

NHLH 116C - Yoga

This five-week course will utilize the science of Yoga, incorporating breath, gentle stretching, strengthening, deep relaxation, affirmation and meditation as a tool to experience a heightened sense of well being in and out of class. We are what we have always imagined ourselves to be. The imagination has been limited or conditioned by a culture which sees itself as, at best, minimally well or happy. We must outgrow the cultural conditionings that discourage our continual growth and expand our range of motion, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will explore the myths of aging which prevent our becoming more expansive. We will look at our life-style choices, modify or expand them. We will look at changing diet to accommodate our new bodies. We will reaffirm ourselves as dynamic beings. The needs of each student will be acknowledged. Dress comfortably, bring a mat and a positive outlook.
